WENATCHEE - Three Walla Walla Community College players scored in double figures to beat Wenatchee Valley College, 70-50, in an NWAACC East Region game here Saturday night.

Sophomores Layne Tucker, Kati Isham and Nancy Johnson all scored 11 or more points.

"The three sophomores played well against a last-place team," WWCC coach Bobbi Hazeltine. "They carried us on a night that our defensive was just average.

"It was a long road trip, and after that emotional game last week, I didn't know how we'd play tonight," she said. "We got the win again and that is all that matters."

Isham led the charge with 19 points, six rebounds and six assists.

"Kati passed the ball real well in the first half," Hazeltine said. "In the second half, she started scoring. She played a good game, real solid."

Johnson tallied 12 points and five rebounds. Tucker dropped in 11 points and dished out six assists.

The Warriors are tied for first in the conference with Yakima with a 21-1 mark.

Yakima holds the tiebreaker, but three more regular season games remain for both teams.

WWCC plays again Wednesday night at home against Spokane at 6 p.m., on Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
