The Vikings trailed by 17 at the break and never recovered.

Zeke Marshall chipped in 18 points, Demetrius Treadwell finished with 15 points and Alex Abreu and Jake Kretzer both ended the day with 11 points.

Bryn Forbes ended the afternoon with 13 points off the bench but the Vikings were led in scoring by Junior Lomomba who finished the day with 16 points.

The Vikings shot just 34.6 percent from the field while the Zips knocked down 53.2 percent of their attempts. The Vikings face Rio Grande on Friday while the Zips face Texas Southern on Friday.
