WALLA WALLA — Caitlin Duncan had another double-double with 18 points and 10 boards to lead the Irish girls basketball team over Garfield-Palouse, 44-29, here Saturday night.

"We pretty much expect a double-double from her every game," DeSales coach Tim Duncan said. "Without it, it could be a tough night."

Other Irish contributing to the win included Annie Higgins with nine points and Jamie Majerus with 10.

Higgins scored six of her nine points on two 3-pointers.

The score at halftime was 22-15 Irish.

"It was a close game," Duncan said. "We pulled away later on in the game."

The game was still close going to the final quarter, with DeSales only up by 10.

The final score was a 15-point victory for DeSales.

Still, Duncan wasn’t happy with his team’s effort.

"It was a sub-standard effort on our part," Duncan said. "Not to take anything away from Garfield-Palouse, I thought they played well."

The victory makes DeSales 7-2 overall and 3-1 in league.

The Irish play again Friday at home against Liberty Christian at 6 p.m.
