SALEM, Ore. — Walla Walla University improved on both ends of the court here Friday but still came out on the short end as Corban College’s junior varsity squad dumped the Wolves 74-48 in a women’s college basketball game.

The same two teams met on the same court Thursday and Corban emerged with a 76-42 victory. The back-to-back defeats lowered the Wolves’ season mark to 4-11 going into today’s game at Northwest Indian College in Bellingham.

The Wolves did a better job defensively on Terra Rust, who scored 12 points on 5-for-17 shooting from the field — 2-for-12 from behind the 3-point arc — after she went off for a team-high 23 points in Thursday’s game. But the same couldn’t be said for Ashlyn Roose, who poured in a game-high 30 points Friday night by sinking 8-of-15 shots from 3-point land and 10-of-21 overall.

Roose managed just 12 points on Thursday and was 4-for-13 from the field.

Heather McFadden led a balanced albeit modest Wolves offense with 13 points. Megan Moore scored seven points for Walla Walla and the quartet of Chelsae Sims, McKenzie Duellman, Katie Wilson and Dominique Pusher each contributed six points.

Walla Walla also had balance on the backboards with Moore, Duellman and Pusher each pulling down six rebounds to lead the way. But the Wolves lost the rebounding battle 56-43 as Kate Tracy and Christy Mosier each cleared 12 rebounds for the hosts.

The Wolves, who were also guilty of 25 turnovers in the game, trailed 42-21 at halftime.
