(Neb.)-Fort Lewis Shoots Past CSC Men
CHADRON – Four Fort Lewis players scored in double figures and 11 total Skyhawks found the scoring column en route to their convincing 85-61 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference win over Chadron State Friday evening at Armstrong Gymnasium.
Chadron State, now 1-10 overall and 1-5 in the conference, will host Adams State tonight (Saturday). Tip-off is set for 8 p.m.
Nick Tomsick led the Skyhawks with 18 points, Marcus Ayala added 16 and Jared Smith and Alex Herrera each scored 10 to help lead the streaking Fort Lewis men to its eighth victory.
The Skyhawks never trailed in the game and shot lights out, especially in the first half when they hit nine of 14 3-point attempts and 17 of 28 field goals.
Fort Lewis only hit three treys in the second half but managed to sink 14 of 28 attempts from the field to keep the Eagles in check.
Zac Bargen finished with a game-high 23 points and added 10 rebounds to record his second double double of the season to pace Chadron State.
Grant Stone scored 13 points off the bench and Kendrick Holliman added 10 more but no other CSC player had more than four points.
The Eagles struggled from the field – connecting on 19 of 52 from the field – but they made up for it by going to the foul line 33 times, hitting 17 of them.
