Highlands hung in there a while, playing close with the undefeated, No. 3 nationally ranked Fort Lewis College women’s basketball team for most of the first half Friday evening in Durango, Colo.
Then the Skyhawk women (13-0, 8-0) took flight in doubling their visitors up 66-33.
NMHU (5-11, 2-8) led twice, 2-0 and 4-3, and as late as the 5:58 mark in the first half, the Cowgirls trailed by a mere single-digit margin. China Smith’s fast break layup made it a 20-14 game with 7:27 to go before halftime.
