Top-ranked VU Trailblazers escape upset-minded John A. Logan, 71-70

The NJCAA No. 1 Vincennes University Men's Basketball Team had another close call Wednesday night - this time, a 71-70 win over NJCAA District 16 foe John A. Logan - but the Trailblazers continued to escape the best shots of opponents and stay unbeaten at 16-0.

John A. Logan (11-3) overcame a double-digit  VU lead in the second half to eventually lead by three near the 14:00 mark and push the top-ranked Trailblazers to the final buzzer.

VU sophomore guard Charles Foster scored 14 points and eight assists to lead the Trailblazers (16-0). Sophomore A.J. Patty had 13 points and eight rebounds while sophomore Mychal Mulder finished with 12 points and seven boards. John A. Logan's Russell Woods scored a game-high 23 and the Volunteers got 12 each from Ranell Crossland and A.J. Riley.

The Trailblazers led throughout most of the game and held a 37-28 advantage at halftime. In the second half, VU was up by 12 with just over 16:00 to go but John A. Logan clawed back into it and led by one with less than a minute to go when VU freshman Keith Mack scored to put VU up 71-70. It was the fourth lead change of the second half after the Volunteers tightened it up. The score had also been tied twice late in the contest.

John A. Logan got a look at an open deep 3-pointer with less than a second on the clock. But the shot was to the right and off the mark, allowing the Trailblazers to escape after John A. Logan had outscored the hosts 42-34 in the second half.

Much of VU's woes came in the form of 25-for-64 shooting (.391), including only 4-of-15 from beyond the 3-point line. Fortunately for VU, John A. Logan struggled even more by hitting only 21-of-64 (.328). The Trailblazers were also whistled for 26 fouls while the aggressive Volunteers were called for 18. But VU made the most of the Volunteer fouls, hitting 9-of-13 from the free throw stripe in the second half to keep the game within reach of winning. Foster hit all four of his attempts and Mack added a pair at crunch time from the line in the second half.

The Trailblazers will travel Saturday to Southwestern Illinois in Belleville, IL, for a 4 p.m. tip-off. The game will follow the VU women facing Southwestern Illinois at about 2 p.m.
