Warrior Woes

There are few feelings in sports that are worse than losing a game you and your team are expected to win.
Walla Walla Community College’s men’s and women’s basketball teams, who have both enjoyed more success than failure this season, took gigantic steps backward this past Saturday at Wenatchee Valley.
The women, who knocked off defending NWAACC champion Yakima Valley less than 72 hours earlier, dropped a 67-59 decision to a Knights’ team that is in the bottom half of the NWAACC Eastern Region standings.
WWCC’s men, who moved into sole possession of second place on the league ladder by beating YVC last Wednesday, suffered a 63-61 setback to the last-place Knights to fall into a three-way tie for second with Big Bend and Yakima.
The teams will experience opposite ends of the spectrum on Wednesday when Spokane comes to town. The women will look to bounce back against an opponent that currently occupies the East cellar while the men take on a group that is on top of the league.
Both the Walla Walla men and women are capable of playing better than they did on Saturday. The hope and expectation of Warrior fans will be for them to do just that.
