Vincennes University men’s basketball falls to Olney Central

VINCENNES, Ind. – The No. 8 Vincennes University men’s basketball team suffered a two-point loss to Olney Central on Wednesday night 72-70.

VU Statistical Leaders               

Sophomore Craig Porter (Terre Haute, Ind.) put up 28 points, seven assists, and five rebounds.

Sophomore Kevin Osawe (Brampton, Ontario, Canada) had 19 points and 12 rebounds.

Coach Franklin says

“I think we need to do the things we’re taught and trained to do every day, and I think we need to do them with intensity. If we don’t, we deserve to get beat. We left too many things on the table tonight, things we didn’t even attempt to do.”

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.
