Olukemi leads VU Women's Basketball to decisive win over Malcolm X

Vincennes University freshman Jeanier Olukemi broke loose for 22 points and pulled down eight rebounds off the bench to lead the VU Women's Basketball Team to a 78-45 dismantling of Malcolm X Saturday in VU's first game of the Sodexo Classic at the VU P.E. Complex.
Sophomores Nicole Dodd and Anais Kirvan had 14 and 10, respectively, for VU (5-0).
Olukemi was 6-for-7 from the floor and hit 9-of-12 free throw attempts to lead the Trailblazers' 31-of-39 performance at the stripe.
Teh contest got off to a slow start and VU led just 4-2 near the 15:00 mark in the first. But, with 10:00 remaining, the Trailoblazers had moved out to an 18-10 advantage. Malcolm X then went three minutes between points before and VU stretched the lead to 24-11 as part of a 17-2 run over a five-minute period of time. That part of the first 20 minutes staked VU to a 35-12 lead. The Trailblazers were up 46-25 when they headed to the locker room at the half and the game was basically over.
AT the 9:00 mark in the second, VU led 67-33 and cruised to the win.
VU will return to the P.E. Complex floor at 3 p.m. Sunday to face Mineral Area in the fourth and final game of the Sodexo Classic. Prior to that, Malcolm X and St. Clair County will square off at 1 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.
