8th Ranked Fort Lewis too much for Thunderwolves
DURANGO, Colo. - The 8th-ranked Fort Lewis Skyhawks were too
much to handle for the Thunderwolves as they lost their second game
in two nights with a final score of 71-55.
From the tip off, the Thunderwolves found themselves trailing and it didn't get any better from there. The Thunderwolves continued their poor shooting going just 19 for 63 from the field.
"Bottom line through it all is that you have to make plays," said head coach Kip Drown. "They have people who make plays and we didn't make plays."
The Thunderwolves found it very hard to contain the four players that scored in double digits for the Skyhawks. Allison Rosel led the Skyhawks with 16 points with 13 total rebounds. Luaren Redfern, Katie Mackey, and Erin Kerr followed Rosel by also scored in double digits.
The Pack did make several attempts for a comeback with Jonnie Draper going four for seven from behind the arch. Michelle Ambuul followed Draper's performance with 10 points of her own. But in the end, the Skyhawks were just too much for the Pack to handle.
"Every time we made a run, they answered and that is the reason why they are 8th in the country," said Drown.
This road trip for the Thunderwolves turned out to be very disappointing because they lost the chance of a home playoff game and were unable to get within shooting distance for the fourth place spot in the RMAC West Division.
The Pack will look to rebound with the final home stand of the year on Feb. 22 and 23 against Western New Mexico and New Mexico Highlands.
