VU women struggle in 83-59 setback at Kaskaskia

CENTRALIA, Ill. - The Vincennes University Women's Basketball Team couldn't get on track Saturday at Kaskaskia and fell, 83-59, to the host Blue Angels.

Sophomore Kyra Tucker scored 18 points and freshman Marley Miller chipped in with 12 (on four 3-pointers), while freshman Unique Conner pulled down nine rebounds. But the Trailblazers (19-4) shot only 35 percent from the floor and struggled to 54 percent (13-for-24) at the free throw line. VU also managed only 27 rebounds against the Blue Angels (6-14).

Kaskaskia got in front early and never trailed from that point as it built on its lead at each stop of the way. The Blue Angels led, 22-13, after one quarter; 39-27, at halftime and 63-47 at the end of three quarters.

The VU ladies return home to host Three Rivers at 7 p.m. Monday and then host Southeastern Illinois at 5 p.m. on Wednesday. The Wednesday game - followed by the VU men vs. visiting Southeastern Illinois - will be part of VU's annual Play4Kay event to generate awareness and raise funds for breast cancer research. The VU women will then make a Feb. 10 trip to John A. Logan in Carterville, IL, followed by a shorter trip to Robinson, IL, to face Lincoln Trail on Feb. 13.

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.
