Returning from the holiday break, the Fort Hays State University women’s basketball team kept its foot on the gas.

In the final non-conference game before beginning a long stretch in the MIAA, the Tigers put six in double figures and rolled to a 118-35 victory against Kansas Christian College on Saturday at Gross Memorial Coliseum.

Kacey Kennett led the Tigers with 16 points while Emma Stroyan (12), Jill Faxon (12), Taylor Rolfs (12), Madison Mittie (10) and Tatyana Legette (10) all reached double digits. FHSU hit 48 of 94 shots from the floor and rarely led KCC touch the ball, outrebounding the visitors 71-23. KCC got off 59 shots, but hit just 13. Everyone who played for FHSU put up points, and the Tigers hit 13 of 15 from the free throw line.

Next up, the Tigers will renew a rivalry at 5:30 p.m. Thursady at home with University of Central Missouri, now the conference leader at 10-1 overall and 3-0 in MIAA play. The win Saturday pushed FHSU (2-2 MIAA) to 11-2 overall.
