FLC men’s basketball eyes a return to the top

Skyhawks open with rout of Portland Bible College

The Fort Lewis College men’s basketball team started the season strong, winning 108-62 win over Portland Bible College on Friday in Alamosa.
Alex Herrera led the way for the Skyhawks (1-0) with 30 points on 10-of-13 shooting, three blocks and seven rebounds.
Nick Tomsick chipped in 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting for Fort Lewis, and JoeBell Austin had eight points with six assists.
FLC head coach Bob Hofman was pleased with the way his team shot the ball but also is looking for better ball movement as the season gets going.
“It didn’t really allow us to really get the kind of ball movement FLC is known for,” Hofman said. “It was a lot of good things but also a lot of things we need to do better in terms of ball movement and offensive rebounding. ... When you’re making shots, sometimes you don’t see the sins.”
And despite only allowing 62 points, the Skyhawks can be much better on defense, Hofman said.
“We gave up too much dribble penetration, and we didn’t rebound particularly well,” he said.
FLC will take on Pacifica College at 2 p.m. Saturday in Alamosa.
