The Fort Lewis College women's basketball team lost to Western State University 54 to 64 Friday night in the Whalen Gymnasium.

The game started out with a bang with a three-pointer from Alyssa Yocky and a two-pointer from Kayla Herrera.

Later Herrera was whistled at for a foul which gave Western Colorado a chance to catch up with Fort Lewis with three free throws. The FLC women held a 20 to 18 point advantage at the end of the first quarter.    

With the second quarter of the game, Western Colorado began to pick up the lead of the game. At half-time, FLC trailed 33 to 35.

With the final quarter, the rest of the players were getting caught with fouls from the referee. At the end of the third quarter, Western State was up 56 to 48.

The FLC women could never dip into the Western lead. The final score was 64-54.
