WALLA WALLA - Walla Walla Community College's men shot 53 percent from the floor Saturday night and posted an easy 103-68 victory over Treasure Valley in an NWAACC Eastern Region men's basketball game Saturday night in the Dietrich Dome.

The Warriors, 5-4 in league and 12-8 overall, led 57-36 at halftime and continued to pour it on after halftime.

Jason Smith led the way for Walla Walla with 30 points. He made 11-of-24 shots from the field including 8-of-19 from 3-point range.

Ryan Schultz followed Smith's effort with 16 points. Aaron Corsi tallied 13 and Michael Crane added 10 and a game-high 15 rebounds. Crane also had three of the Warriors' nine blocked shots in the game.

"We stuck it to them," WWCC coach Jeff Reinland said. "We played 40 minutes of basketball. We played a great first half. We played a pretty good second half.

"We got 13 3s to go down," Reinland said. "That helped the cause. We did a pretty good job overall. We got up quickly and stretched it (the lead) up pretty big.

"We came out in the second half and got the lead up to 36," Reinland said. "The kids played intensely the whole game. Michael did a good job and played hard. Jason got going. Schultz played well and Moore had a good game overall."

The Warriors travel to Yakima on Wednesday.
