Goli Tavassoli (Vanden, Solano) stood tall for Waldorf by getting 15 points, four assists, two rebounds, one block and one steal in a 73-57 dumping of Southwestern Christian, adding 13 points and two rebounds in a rematch of the two teams, won by the Warriors (11-6, 2-2 Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference) 67-58.
