MOSES LAKE - Walla Walla Community College's men's basketball team earned a split in the annual Big Bend Runnin' Vikes Classic here Saturday with an 87-56 victory over Camosun.

Jay Payne led four Warriors in double figures with 21 points and made 5-of-8 shots from 3-point range. Michael Crane added 17, Dylan Radliff scored 12 points and Mac Stannard chipped in with 10 while contributing a game-high nine rebounds.

WWCC broke away from a 39-33 halftime lead by shooting 65.5 percent (19-of-29) from the field in the second half.

On Friday, the Warriors dropped a 78-51 decision to North Idaho despite 22 points from Hunter Hahn, who made 6-of-12 3-point shots in the game.

"We played a lot better," WWCC coach Jeff Reinland said after Saturday's win. "The guys have played good defense all year. We're defending pretty well and shot better.

"It wasn't easy in the first half," Reinland said. "We were still reeling from the North Idaho (game). We've been battling illness, it was finals week (this past week). It's been a tough couple of weeks.

"It was tough," Reinland said of the North Idaho loss. "We actually had some looks and had it down to 13 with seven minutes to go, but it got a way from us."

The Warriors travel to North Seattle Community College Friday for a three-day NWAACC crossover tournament. Their opening-round opponent will be Green River.
