     Jaeden Ingram enjoyed a double-double night with 13 points and 11 rebounds while teammates Kell Estep and Taylor Peppinger combined to score 43 points as Multnomah University continued their high scoring ways in toying with Portland Bible College 111-64 Tuesday night in Portland, Oregon.

     The Lions (2-1) chose to rest their top three scorers for the contest but still had plenty of offensive punch as they moved into fourth place in current NAIA stats with an impressive 106.3 points per game scoring average.  Estep hit 9 of his 12 shots for 22 points while Peppinger shot 6 of 13 from 3-point range to register 21 points to go with 5 steals and 6 rebounds. The Lions continue to impress on the glass, now averaging 51 rebounds per game, tied with fellow Cascade Collegiate Conference member Lewis-Clark State for sixth in the country.

     Amande Uchime chipped in with 9 points and 7 rebounds for the victors, while touted freshman Derrien Carter-Hollinger, getting his first significant minutes of the season, responded with 13 points on 6 of 10 shooting.

     Lions coach Curt Bickley elected to rest his top 3 scorers on the night, as Zach Richardson, Tyrese Taylor and Neyland Block did not play. Multnomah senior Wallace Ungwiluk led all players in assists with 10.

     Multnomah continues to shoot over 50% (52.6%) from the field for the season.
