KEARNEY, Neb. -- No. 3 Fort Lewis (12-0 overall, 7-0 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) shot 61 percent from the field to defeat Nebraska-Kearney (5-7, 4-4) 99-76.
“It was our best offensive output of the season, not just points but the way we played offensively,” said sixth-year head coach Mark Kellogg. “We did a great job moving the ball, making extra passes and getting good shots.”
Six Skyhawks scored in double figures as FLC extended its school records for most wins to start a season (12) and most consecutive road victories (12), dating back to a 73-64 loss at West Texas A&M on Jan. 3, 2010.
Dana Schreibvogel led the way with 20 points and eight rebounds. She shot .750 from the field (eight of 12), .750 from the line (three of four) and made her only 3-point attempt.
Other Skyhawks to score in double figures included Erika Richards (15 points), Jenna Santistevan (14), Mary Rose Paiz (13), Abby Jackson (10) and Katerina Garcia (10). All 11 FLC players scored.
As a team, FLC made 36 of 59 field goal attempts, and shot .676 from the field in the second stanza (23 of 34) when they blew open a relatively close game (43-35 at halftime). Fort Lewis led by as many as 30 points late in the contest.
The Skyhawks also were deadly from behind the arc, shooting .500 for the game (10 of 20). Paiz was a perfect 3-for-3 from long range, while Stephanie Beeman made both of her long distance bombs.
