MOSES LAKE — Big Bend big man Miles Brown had a career-best, finishing with 17 points and 17 rebounds. But the Runnin' Vikes shot a dismal 15.8 percent from the arc and let a game where the lead changed hands six times in the final 13 minutes slip away Saturday night at DeVries Activity Center.

Walla Walla used a 7-2 run with just under five minutes remaining to regain the lead and run it out on the Vikings, 79-68.

That customary Runnin' Vikes explosive run-and-kick offense was more of a run-and-clank and they just couldn't shoot themselves out of the funk, finishing just 3-of-19 from 3-point range. The Warriors (12-4, 2-1 NWAC East) weren't much better from 3-point range, shooting just 28 percent (6-of-21) from downtown. In fact, the Warriors made four of their six 3-point goals in the final eight minutes.
