In the second half, the Patriots were simply too much for the Lobos, extending their lead to 66-36 (29-13 run) at the 5:58 mark of the second half.
UT Tyler would extend that lead to 42 points on a pair of Ashleigh Dykes free throws, bringing the score to the final, 85-43.
In the win, the Patriots' bench scored 22 points to the Lobos 11, shooting 45-percent to Sul Ross' 25-percent for the game.
