MOSES LAKE - Walla Walla Community College bounced back with a vengeance from a tough overtime loss (56-48) to Spokane on Wednesday.

The Warriors made up for it with a 79-38 win over Big Bend Community College in NWAACC East Region women's basketball Saturday.

The Warriors never let Big Bend in this one as they raced to a 38-15 halftime lead and expanded the lead with a 41-point second half. The Warriors stretched the final to 79-38.

""That (Spokane loss) was as tough a loss as I've been associated with. We bounced back well," WWCC coach Bobbi Hazeltine said. "(Tonight) was our most complete game of the year. We decided to push the ball and let it all hang out. We ran like crazy and shot 83 percent (15-of-18) from the line. We did a lot of things right (that) we've been waiting a long time to see."

All 12 Warriors that played scored. The Warriors put three in double digits and all three came off the bench.

Sienna Edmunson led the way with 16 points. Alex Pfefferle added 14, and Leslie Stillar chipped in 11.

Caitlin Duncan's 10 rebounds led the Warriors to a 51-42 advantage on the glass. The Warriors got five assists each from Stillar and Janae Klarich and handed out a total of 18 assists for the game.

The Warriors improve to 4-3 in East play and will host the undefeated and No.-1 NWAACC ranked Columbia Basin Hawks Wednesday.

"We've played them tough twice," Hazeltine said of the upcoming match. "That gives us confidence. We're excited."
