PENDLETON — The Blue Mountain Community College women’s basketball team suffered its ninth consecutive league loss Wednesday when the visiting Treasure Valley Chukars came to town.

Behind two double-digit performances from Holle Raymond (11 points) and Shaylee Gilchrist (10), Treasure Valley won 63-51.

The Timberwolves (1-19 overall, 0-9 NWAC) got off to a slow start, getting outscored 10-7 in the opening quarter. Blue Mountain quickly made adjustments and was able to cut its deficit to 28-22 at halftime.

But in the second half, the Timberwolves just couldn’t get close enough. Aleesha Watson led the team with a game-high 14 points and Sydney Wammock added 11 points. Ten different Chukars (10-10, 5-4) got on the board, including Raymond and Gilchrist. A trio of sophomores scored eight points apiece.

The Timberwolves will return to the court Saturday at Big Bend Community College. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.
