Manse, Hansen lead VU's long-range barrage in 86-73 win over Lewis & Clark

The Vincennes University Men's Basketball Team picked up its 20th win of the season Saturday night with an 86-73 win over visiting Lewis & Clark at the VU P.E. Complex.

Freshman guard Jordan Manse came off the bench to hit six 3-pointers (five in the first half) on the way to a team-high 18 points for the Trailblazers (20-5). The long-range barrage accounted for half of VU's 12 treys, while freshman guard Nate Hansen knocked down four from beyond the arc en route to 17 points. In addition, sophomore forward Darren Groves had 13 points and freshmen guards Jeremiah Bell and Chris Darrington contributed 10 and nine points, respectively.

Freshman guard Dorian Scruggs came off the bench to lead Lewis & Clark (7-16) with 17 points. He produced all of his points in the second half to lead a comeback attempt by the visitors.

VU got out to an 18-point halftime lead at 45-27 and built that lead to 24 early in the second half. But VU was plagued by 21 turnovers in the second 20 minutes and Lewis & Clark outscored the hosts, 46-41 in the second half to pare the lead down to the final margin of 13 points.

The Trailblazers will travel to John A. Logan in Carterville, IL, on Wednesday and then head to Lincoln Trail in Robinson, IL, on Saturday, Feb. 13.

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
