COLLEGE PLACE - Walla Walla University used huge advantages in rebounds, turnovers and assists here Sunday afternoon and blew out Northwest Indian Reservation 99-34 in a women's collegiate basketball game.

The Wolves controlled the backboards 61-40, with Johanna Uribe leading the way with 10 rebounds. Sarah Fitch and Alyssa Bailey chalked up nine rebounds each, Karly Joseph chased down eight missed shots and Katelynn Taggart and Abbey Manzano were credited with six each.

Walla Walla's defense forced the visitors into 35 turnovers while giving the ball back just 12 times. Dani Carlman accrued five steals in the game.

And the Wolves were credited with 33 assists on their 43 field goals while the Indian Reservation earned just four assists. Uribe and Manzano recorded seven assists each.

All of this on a night when Walla Walla knocked down 43 of its 90 shots from the floor for a steady 48 percent. The Wolves were not as effective from beyond the 3-point arc, making just 6-of-24 (25 percent), or from the free-throw line where they made 7-of-14 (50 percent).

The Wolves are idle until Jan. 26 when they host their own Hoops Classic.
