CALDWELL, Idaho - The College of Idaho men held Walla Walla University to the fewest points by a Coyote opponent in 60 years while rolling to a 88-30 victory in the final game of the Duane Wolfe Memorial Golden Rule Shootout Saturday.

The Wolves were held without a field goal over the final 17 minutes of the first half, with the Coyotes taking a 38-11 lead into the locker room.

In a press release from the C of I, Matt Ballenger hit seven mid-range jump shots in an 18-2 run that gave The C of I the lead for good, while Duncan Koga canned a pair of treys as the Yotes closed the half by scoring the final 16 points - as the Wolves missed their final 14 shots in the period and committed 16 turnovers.

A pair of triples from Tyreek Luckett got WWU within 49-20 early in the half, but the Yotes scored 26 of the next 29 points and cruised to the win.

Ballenger led all scorers with 20 points, with Rodney Delgardo adding 15 points - including two thunderous dunks. Koga had a season-high 14 points, with Krispin Banks and Tyler Young each scoring eight. The Yotes hit a season-best 57-percent of their field goal attempts.

Mark Moore had 11 points in the loss for WWU, as the Wolves made just 7-of-44 field goals and committed 27 turnovers.
