The third quarter was the difference. Zanesville knocked down four three-pointers in an 18 point quarter to surge ahead 36-26 and not look back.
Chillicothe outshot Zanesville at the line making 12 of 19 compared to 7 of 15 for the Devils.
Hannah Day led Chillicothe with 18 points and Monique Lee added 11 more as Chillicothe dropped to 12-5 overall and 8-2 in the SEOAL.
