GOLDEN, Colorado – The Colorado School of Mines women’s basketball team opened the second half on an 11-0 scoring run and then made four of six free throws in the closing seconds to secure a 65-59 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference victory over Chadron State College Friday evening at Lockridge Arena.
Only five Orediggers scored in the game but four of them ended up in double figures, led by Taylor Helbig’s 22 points. Tory Langas added 15 points and 10 rebounds, Angie Charchalis, who entered the game as the RMAC’s scoring leader, chipped in 12 points and eight boards and Courtney Gallo finished with 11.

However, the Eagles fought back and trimmed the Orediggers’ advantage to four points three times in the final seven minutes but they could never turn it into a one-possession game.
