VU Women's Basketball holds on against MAC to improve to 6-0

The Vincennes University Women's Basketball Team withstood a furious comeback attempt by Mineral Area and held on Sunday to defeat the Cardinals 65-62 in the last game of the Sodexo Classic at the VU P.E. Complex. The victory improved the Trailblazers to 6-0 on the season.
Freshman Chelsea Bentley led VU with 16 points while freshman Jesheon Cooper turned in a double-double by scoring 10 points and yanking down 13 rebounds. In addition, the Trailblazers got 13 points from freshman Jeanier Olukemi and 10 points from sophomore Nicole Dodd.
VU led throughout most of the game, including a 31-22 advantage at halftime. But Mineral Area instituted a bothersome press and and turned up its defense in general in the second half to pull ahead about midway in the final 20 minutes.
The Trailblazers clawed back in front - helped by 7-of-8 free throw shooting down the stretch by Olukemi and sophomore Tasia Brewer to preserve the victory.

Play4Kay

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.
