VU Women's Basketball routs Lindsey Wilson, 97-50, for fifth straight victory

Sophomore Kyra Tucker and freshman Marley Miller provided plenty of instant offense off the bench Tuesday night as the Vincennes University Women’s Basketball Team won its fifth straight game, blowing out Lindsey Wilson, 97-50, at the VU P.E. Complex.

Tucker hit 9-of-14 shots (including a 3-pointer) and a free throw to complete a conventional 3-point play for a game-high 20 points. Miller drained four treys on her way to 18 points. Sophomore Chelsea Bentley chipped in with 10 points. Lindsey Wilson was led by DaVice Woods’ 19 points.

The Trailblazers (5-1) made the final result a foregone conclusion early on. VU, which connected on 10-of-22 trey attempts and shot 50.6 percent from the floor overall, was up 20-2 at the end of one quarter and enjoyed a 44-11 advantage at the half. VU dominated the boards by a 56-34 margin and committed only 14 turnovers while registering nine steals, including Bentley’s four thefts.

Up next, the Trailblazers will host the Sodexo Classic Saturday and Sunday at the VU P.E. Complex. VU will face Owens at 3 p.m. on Saturday and take on Malcolm X at 4 p.m. Sunday.

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.
