COLLEGE PLACE - Walla Walla University's men's basketball team picked up one of its biggest wins of the year against Multnomah Bible College Tuesday night.

The Wolves topped Multnomah, 90-62.

"Our goal was to play efficient offense and get some good shots against them," said WWU assistant coach Jim Hill. "We're trying to move the ball and make them defend us. We knew if we could do that, we'd get some really good looks at the basket.

"That was our main offensive goal," he said. "Defensively, we wanted to keep them in front of us, and not give them second-chance shots."

Tristan Greenidge had a double-double for the Wolves, scoring 20 points and bringing home 14 boards.

Bryce Doherty had 18 points and seven boards.

"Tristan had 14 of his points in the first half," Hill said. "He did a great job pacing us, and Bryce had 10 or 12 of his points by halftime. They did a good job getting us off to a fast start."

And they led the team in establishing its goal of knocking Multnomah off early.

"We jumped on them pretty quick," Hill said. "We had a few early defensive lapses and let them keep it close, but once our defense was squared away, we did what we wanted to do."

The Wolves led 48-27 at the half.

"They've been struggling a little and we didn't want to do anything to let them get their heads up or feel good about what was going on," Hill said. "Our goal was to have a big lead at halftime and the guys did a good job executing that."

The Wolves are 6-21 overall. They host New Hope Bible at 6 p.m. today.
