Miller rescues VU Women's Basketball, 73-71, with last-second shot vs. OCC

Freshman Marley Miller's last-second jumper from just inside the 3-point arc provided the Vincennes University Women's Basketball Team with its 18th win of the season Saturday after the Trailblazers saw an 11-point halftime lead evaporate. VU eventually won, 73-71.

The Trailblazers (18-3) hung on after scoring only three points in the third quarter and went from being up 47-36 at the midway point to trailing 52-50 after three periods. The game was tied 71-all when Miller launched the shot and found nothing but net after she had struggled to 1-for-7 shooting in the second half up until that point. The game-winner gave her 12 for the game to follow freshman Laurhen Pickett's team-high 18. Freshman Joshlynn King finished with 10 for the Trailblazers. Olney Central (10-10) was led by Kelsi Scott's game-high 22 points.

VU won the game despite 28 turnovers and just 4-for-17 shooting from 3-point range. However, the Trailblazers controlled the boards, 39-24, to hold the Lady Blue Knights to one shot much of the game and keep the contest in striking distance after Olney Central went up by three with just over 9:00 left in the game. Many of the game's nine ties and eight lead changes occurred late in the game before Miller's big shot.

The Trailblazers will travel to Wabash Valley in Mt. Carmel, IL, Wednesday for a 6:30 p.m. ("Vincennes time") game, prior to the VU men taking on the host Warriors at 8:30 p.m.

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.
