Idaho Coasts To 86-39 Win Over Lower-Division Walla Walla

Connor Hill scored 19 points, hitting 5 of 7 from 3-point range, to help propel Idaho to an 86-39 win over Walla Walla University on Thursday night. Sekou Wiggs contributed 13 points and dished out five assists. Chad Sherwood and Arkadiy Mkrtychyan added 12 points apiece, and Victor Sanders had 10 for Idaho (5-5), which shot 52.3 percent from the floor and gave coach Don Verlin a program record with 102 wins. The Vandals held Walla Walla, an NAIA team, to just 26.4 percent shooting and enjoyed a 48-24 rebounding advantage. Walla Walla sank the opening bucket, a 3-pointer from Ethan Osias, but quickly fell behind as Idaho responded with an 18-5 run to take control with a lead that was never challenged. The Vandals took a 49-18 advantage into the break and continued to pull away in the second half. Jordan Spady led Walla Walla with 11 points. MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) – December 19, 2014

Helfrich: Ekpre-Olomu Won't Play Against FSU

Oregon coach Mark Helfrich confirmed Thursday that the third-ranked Ducks will be without star cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu when they face Jameis Winston and Florida State in their playoff game next month. Helfrich acknowledged the senior All-America's college career is over after he was injured during a noncontact drill on Tuesday. The coach wouldn't disclose the nature of the injury. But a person with knowledge of the injury had previously told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Ekpre-Olomu had hurt his right knee. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the program does not discuss injuries. Ekpre-Olomu has been a cornerstone of the Ducks' secondary with 63 tackles, two interceptions and six pass breakups this season. EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – December 19, 2014
