ONTARIO, Ore. - Mac Stannard scored 30 points and Walla Walla Community College hit seven 3-pointers in the first half here Saturday in NWAACC East Region men's basketball action.

The Warriors took a 46-31 lead to intermission only to see Treasure Valley cut the lead to one with 8:00 left. The Warriors righted the ship and went on to post an 89-76 win over the Chukars.

"We came out hotter than heck and made a bunch of shots," Warrior coach Jeff Reinland said. "We got up 19 early, and then got outplayed. We let down, but we shot well enough (30-of-63 for the game) to get away with defensive mistakes."

The Chukars, who were led by the 24 points of Zach Smith, fought back to get within one, but Dylan Radliff got a four-point play, the Warrior defense got a stop, and Stannard drained a trey from the corner to break the Warriors out of trouble.

"It's a great win on the road," Reinland added. "This is a hard place to play. I'm a little disappointed the way we played the middle 25 minutes. We didn't have the zip."

WWCC had six players including Stannard in double digits. Hunter Hahn hit for 13, Jay Payne scored 12, Radliff finished with 11, and Michael Crane and Dallen Bills each chipped in 10.
