From best to worst, FLC goes cold

Skyhawks’ hot hand cools considerably in Round 2
The 2012-13 season finally got away from Alex Herrera and the Fort Lewis College Skyhawks. St. Mary’s, the No. 2 seed in the South Central Regional, defeated No. 3 FLC 62-50 on Sunday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
FLC senior Torrey Udall was one of four players to suit up for the Skyhawks one final time Sunday in Denver, “and I couldn’t really ask for more in five years,” he said.
Mike Matthews and the Skyhawks lost their tango with St. Mary’s on Sunday in Denver. The Rattlers beat the Skyhawks 62-50 to advance to Tuesday’s regional championship game.
While nearly everything dropped through the bucket in Saturday night’s South Central Regional opener, Wes McKenzie and the Skyhawks didn’t have nearly as much success shooting the basketball in Sunday’s season-ending defeat.
Alex Herrera led the Skyhawks with 18 points, 12 rebounds and five blocked shots, and he caught the eye of the Rattlers’ leading scorer, too. “First off, that boy is a big boy, and he’s only a sophomore, so the (Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) has got trouble for the next two years, and so’s the nation,” Kevin Kotzur said.
Nick Tomsick goes up for an easy two, but the St. Mary’s Rattlers got the last laugh with a 62-50 victory in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday in Denver.
