ONTARIO, Ore. - Walla Walla Community College bounced back from a 65-53 loss to Columbia Basin last Wednesday behind the 16-point effort of Tai Jensen here Saturday in NWAACC East Region women's basketball against Treasure Valley.

The Warriors rolled to a 30-19 lead at intermission and never looked back as WWCC improved to 6-2 in East play with a 68-39 decision over Treasure Valley.

"We struggled shooting," WWCC coach Bobbi Hazeltine said. "We finished the first half 10-of-40 and had trouble at the 3-point line (WWCC finished 4-of-20 from behind the arc). It took awhile to pull away in the second half."

The Warriors shot 44 percent from the floor over the second 20 minutes to finish with the 29-point win.

Hailey Felgenhauer scored 14 points for WWCC and Leslie Stillar added 11. Jensen led the rebounders with seven and Sienna Edmunson handed out six assists.

"Our post (Jensen and Felgenhauer) played really well, and that was big for us," Hazeltine added. "When you don't shoot well, you have to defend. We played decent defense to hold them to 39 (points)."

The Warriors host one-loss Yakima Valley Wednesday at the Dietrich Dome.
