Alijiah Robinson scored 11 points to lead Walla Walla.

Josh Hager, who finished with nine points, made a 3-pointer to pull Walla Walla to 22-20 midway through the first half. Vulikic made a layup and Cody Benzel added a 3-pointer as the Eagles closed on a 17-6 run for a 39-26 halftime lead.

The Eagles will be on the road for 10 straight games, beginning Sunday at Washington.
