Vincennes University Dominates Its Opening Game of Kiwanis Invitational

The Vincennes University Men’s Basketball team moved to 2-0 on Friday night on the way to recording their second consecutive blowout by beating Jefferson Tech 107-51.

Sophomore Romaro Gill scored the game’s first points with an easy layup, and the Blazers would jump out to a 12-0 lead. More than six minutes would elapse before Jefferson Tech would manage to get on the board. VU shot a blistering 10 of 11 from the line in the first half, and secured a 43-26 lead going into halftime at the VU P.E. Complex.

The second half would be much of the same story, as Vincennes shot nearly 57% from the floor, and freshman Isiah Tisdale would add 10 of his game-high 18 points to blow the game wide open. Joining Tisdale in scoring in bunches was his fellow starting guard, sophomore Chris Darrington, who added 17. Freshman Jamal Bailey rounded out the list of strong efforts on the night with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

The Trailblazers return to action tomorrow night at the VU P.E. Complex for their second game of the Kiwanis Invitational at 7:00 p.m. against Kankakee. Shawnee and Jefferson Tech will play at 5:00 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.
