Trailblazers survive scare from Don Bosco Prep to remain unbeaten and close out 2014 portion of schedule

The NJCAA No. 1 Vincennes Trailblazers closed out the 2014 portion of their schedule Saturday afternoon by posting a hard-fought 71-68 victory over a scrappy and upset-minded Don Bosco Prep squad at the Vincennes University P.E. Complex.

Sophomore Donte' McGill led the Trailblazers (14-0) with 20 points, including a 4-for-7 performance from 3-point land, off the bench. Sophomore A.J. Patty posted a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore Charles Foster contributed 12 points.

Don Bosco got 16 points each from Jayee Hillsman and Aleksandar Dozic, as well as 12 from Zach VanHook.

VU led 40-33 at halftime but had to overcome several Don Bosco runs that threatened to end the Trailblazers' season-opening 13-game winning streak. The seven-point lead at the midway point followed five ties and six lead changes in the first 20 minutes. By the time the game was over, there had been 10 lead changes. Those swings included Don Bosco's string of nine unanswered points to open the second half which allowed the Dons to go from down seven to up two points at 42-40. VU battled back in front 44-42 but never matched it's largest lead, which was 12 points with about a minute remaining in the first half.

But the Trailblazers kept Don Bosco from scoring in the closing 30 seconds to hang on for the narrow win, even though the Dons actually outscored VU 35-31 in the second half.

The Trailblazers shot only 22-for-57 from the field (.386) overall but their escape was aided by their nine 3-pointers and 18-for-21 performance at the free throw line (Patty was 9-for-9 and Foster was 4-for-5 at the stripe). The Dons on the other hand only attempted 16 free throws and made 12. VU also won the battle on the boards by a 34-27 margin. The Trailblazers had 12 offensive rebounds.

VU will be idle until Jan. 3 when the Trailblazers host Score Academy at 7 p.m., following the VU Women's Basketball Team's 3 p.m. game vs. Cincinnati State.
