GREAT FALLS, Mont. - Rebounds and turnovers weighed heavily on Walla Walla University here Sunday as the Wolves suffered a 76-34 defeat at the hands of the University of Great Falls in a women's non-league college basketball game.

The Argos commanded the backboards 49-26, and they forced the Wolves into 32 turnovers and committed just 16 in the lopsided victory.

Great Falls led 41-21 at halftime.

Marissa Skogen scored 13 points to pace a Great Falls offense that saw all 11 players in uniform put points on the scoreboard. Chelsea Adams added 12 points and Katie Wright finished with 11.

Wright and Jamie Young each grabbed seven rebounds for the home team.

Sierra King and Heather McFadden scored eight points each for Walla Walla. Chelsea Sims and Michelle Warner picked off five rebounds each.

The Walla Walla defeat came one day after the Wolves snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 75-62 road win over Salish Kootenai College.
