RAPID CITY, S.D. -- South Dakota Mines jumped out to a 20-point lead in the first half and went on to beat Rocky Mountain College 84-70 on Friday night in women's basketball.

The Hardrockers, 3-6, shot 61 percent in the first half to build a 46-26 lead by halftime. Mines shot 54.4 percent on the night.

Rocky, 3-3, connected on just 27 percent of its shots before intermission. The Battlin' Bears made 36 percent of their shots on the night.

"We didn't really execute very well in the first half," Rocky coach Brian Henderson said. "We showed a little bit more guts and determination in the second half."

Rocky had five players score points in double figures led by Brittany Kumm with 16. Katie Fitzpatrick added 13, including four 3-pointers.

Kumm also had six assists.

Renae Waters and Krista Showalter scored 15 points apiece for Mines. Megan Rohrer added 14.

Rocky will be in Kyle, S.D., on Saturday afternoon to play Oglala Lakota College.
