Multnomah Soars Past Century Mark Once Again - Tops NAIA in Scoring

By Harry Cummins

     Zach Richardson and Taylor Peppinger scored 21 points each and Forrest Smith had 16 rebounds and 15 points as the resurgent Multnomah Lions (3-1) reached triple digit scoring for the third time in four games this season, easily dispatching West Coast Baptist Thursday night by a 122-89 score and regaining the NAIA national scoring lead in the process.

     For the second time this season, Multnomah scored 120 or more points in a game and now leads the nation in scoring at 110.3 points per game. Amande Uchime contributed 15 points,6 rebounds and 3 steals to the lopsided win. Teammate Kell Estep connected for 4 3-pointers and 12 points in just 18 minutes for the Lions.

      Multnomah post player Tyrese Taylor sat out the game, while fellow big man Terin Johnson played only briefly as coach Curt Bickley has elected to use these early season contests to sort out the team's wealth of rotational talent prior to the start of Cascade Collegiate Conference play.

     Such experimentation may be short-lived as the Lions play back-to-back contests the next two nights against NCAA opponent Pacific University.
