Men fall to Everett

EVERETT — Sunday’s non-league basketball game ended the way too many have for Walla Walla Community College’s men the first half of the season.

The Warriors hit just 36.7 percent of their shots in a 77-72 loss to Everett to wrap up a two-game road trip. WWCC fell to Whatcom, 77-71, on Saturday.

“It was just a close game all the way,” Warriors coach Jeff Reinland said. “They had a 15-point lead early in the second half, but we came back to cut it to one with a minute to go and we had the ball and the chance to go ahead, but we didn’t quite pull it out.

“Offensively, we’re just not scoring,” he said. “We’ll be working on that — we have been working on that. That’s the thing about basketball, you’ve got to make baskets.”

Devan Kohn led the Warriors with 21 points and nine rebounds, while Roman McKnight put up 19 points and also grabbed nine boards.

“Roman (McKnight) had a good night overall,” Reinland said. “All the kids played hard, we just didn’t shoot it well.”

The Warriors are now 6-9, wrapping up non-league play without losing by more than eight points.

WWCC hosts Treasure Valley at 4 p.m. Saturday to open NWAC East Division play.
