The difference was in the fourth when the Warriors outscored the Wolves 16-5 to seize the conference win. Daunte Oepping had a big night for WMU with 22 points and nine rebounds.

The girls lost to Wapello 51-35 on Friday and coupled that with a 57-9 defeat of Van Buren. Farrah Nelson led the Wolves with six rebounds.
