DURANGO, Colo. -- Led by star freshman Vivian Gray, the Fort Lewis College women's basketball team had seven players shoot 50% or better from the field as the No. 15 Skyhawks cruised to an 86-48 win on their home court over Chadron State College on Friday.

FLC improved to 12-1, and 6-1 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play, while Chadron State fell to 3-10 (1-6 RMAC).

Fort Lewis caught fire out of the gate, hitting 21 of their 40 first-half field goals, for 52.5 percent. They had runs of 13 and 12, respectively, in the first and second quarters, to put the Eagles at a 47-25 deficit going into halftime. After playing two entire quarters without going to the foul line, the Skyhawks sank 12-of-13 free throws in the second half, earning the win in dominant fashion.

Chadron State was outrebounded 48-33, and turned the ball over nearly twice as often as their opponent, 23 to 12.

Gray's 22 points came on 8-of-14 shooting, and the forward from Texas was 6-of-6 from the charity stripe. She also had a team high six rebounds and four blocks.

Sophomore guard Kayla Herrera added 11 points and swiped a game-high six steals.

Chadron State had their lowest shooting percentage of the season, hitting 17 of their 58 shots from the floor to post a rate of 29.3 percent.

The Eagles were led by Kalli Feddersen with 11 points and seven rebounds. Jessica Harvey added 10, and Leticia Rodriguez pitched in nine points on 3-of-7 three-point shooting, and added seven boards.

CSC remains at high elevation on Saturday, as they go to 2-7 Adams State University, who lost Friday evening in Alamosa to Colorado Christian, whom the Eagles defeated in Chadron on December 4. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
