Sophomore Chinedu Okanu (Gary, Ind.) chipped in with 18 points for VU.

VU Coach Todd Franklin says. . .

“We’re still getting used to being what we need to be. So now we’re catching up. And the good news is that maybe we aren’t where we have historically been at this point in time, but what we have done is gotten to 24-4, and we know there’s a lot better stuff in us still.”

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.
