The Vikings trailed by 17 at the break and never recovered.
Five Zips finished the day in double figures with Nick Harney coming off the bench to score 19 points, good enough to lead all scorers. Harney was perfect from beyond the arc and missed just one shot all day. 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.
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.
