COLLEGE PLACE — Two New Hope Christian players combined for 56 points Monday night in the Walla Walla University gym and the visiting Deacons held on for an 80-73 men’s basketball victory over the Wolves.

Tarance Glynn made 9-of-16 field goal attempts and also pulled down 10 rebounds on his way to a game-leading 29 points. Drew Wiley was 7-for-12 from beyond the 3-point arc and added another 27 points to the New Hope scoring column.

The Wolves’ offense was more balanced by far but not quite prolific enough. Tristan Greenedge led WWU with 18 points on 9-for-12 shooting from the free-throw line and Miguez Martinez and Tyreek Luckett added 11 points each, with Martinez leading his team with eight rebounds.

New Hope Christian led 40-35 at halftime.

The Deacons could have held a more comfortable cushion but cashed in on just 16 of their 35 chances from the free-throw line. The Wolves were 21-for-34 from the stripe but damaged their chances by turning the ball over 27 times in the contest.

It was Walla Walla’s third straight defeat to open the season. The Wolves will try again Thursday when they face College of Idaho at the Eastern Oregon University campus in La Grande. They then take on the Mountaineers Friday in a 2 p.m. contest on the Whitman College campus in Walla Walla.
