DURANGO - The Fort Lewis Skyhawks made 17 3-pointers, the most allowed by a University of Colorado at Colorado Springs women's basketball team, to roll past the Mountain Lions 85-48 Saturday evening at Whalen Gymnasium.
The long ball barrage broke the previous record of 16, set by Montana State-Billings on Nov. 15, 2009.

The Mountain Lions, meanwhile, made just 13 field goals of any sort in Saturday's game.
Danielle Brown led UCCS (7-15, 6-12 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) with 13 points and 10 rebounds for her second double-double of the season. Her twin sister, Jessica Brown, had eight points and six rebounds.
