CALDWELL, Idaho - Walla Walla University saw its early-season women's basketball record slip to 0-9 after dropping a pair of games over the weekend at The College of Idaho's Best Western Caldwell Inn and Suites Lady Yote Classic.

The Wolves lost to the hosts on Saturday, 96-27, after losing to Eastern Oregon on Friday, 108-42.

Johanna Uribe led WWU on Saturday night with 11 points. Brianna Moorer paced the Wolves against EOU with 17 points.

Rebounding was a telling statistic in both games. WWU was outboarded by C of I, 63-20, and 43-31 by Eastern Oregon.

"We got hammered on the offensive boards," WWU coach Mike Patterson said after his team allowed 23 offensive caroms to The College of Idaho. "They killed us. They got tons of second-chance opportunities. Half of their points came in the paint. They are big and physical.

"We're just going against high-quality teams that have played together for two or three years," Patterson said. "We just assembled a team and are still trying to get used to each other's rhythm and certain techniques. It's all part of the learning process. We have to start somewhere.

"I'm proud of the girls," Patterson said. "We just want to get better each time we step on the court."
