Trailblazers remain perfect in rout

BY TRAVIS DAVID

VINCENNES, Ind. – The Vincennes University Women’s Basketball team missed its first six shots from the field Tuesday night, but quickly recovered.

After the sluggish start, the Trailblazers rolled to their third straight lopsided win to start the season with a 104-37 rout of visiting Lindsay Wilson JV inside the PE Complex.

With the win, VU improved to 3-0 on the season and has surpassed the 100-point plateau in all three games.

“We shot the ball so bad the first seven or eight minutes,” Trailblazers coach Harry Meeks said. “We just couldn’t make a shot. But once we started getting some of those shots to fall, the whole game started to turn.”

VU led just 15-8 after the first quarter.

Diamond Fields knocked down a pair of 3-pointers to start the second quarter, the Trailblazers defense cranked up the pressure.

VU came away with five straight steals and turned all of them into points in part of a 23-2 run for a commanding 41-11 advantage.

The Trailblazers led 53-21 at intermission.

“The defensive effort has been there all season,” Meeks said. “We were able to get a lot of those steals around mid court and those are just devastating for the other team because usually they turn into layups and that is what we did.”

For the game, VU came away with 28 steals.

Jaynice Stovall led the defensive assault with 10 steals. The sophomore guard also scored a game-high 23 points and came two assists shy of recording a triple double with eight assists.

“She was able to tip a lot of balls up court and chase them down for layups,” Meeks said of his guard. “She did a nice job defensively tonight and also was able to knock down some jumpers. That is what we need from her. I told her at the beginning of the season we need 12-15 points from her every night.”

All 12 VU players scored in the game.

Cristina De La Cruz-Fuente came off the bench to add 14 points, while Fess Hawkins (13) and Jhala Henry (11) combined for 24 points.

The Trailblazers connected on 44 of 89 shots from the field and assisted on half of the made buckets.

“We don’t have a ball stopper on this team,” Meeks said. “They don’t have a problem sharing the ball and they are always looking for the open player. They are good teammates to one another.”

VU also controlled the glass. The Trailblazers held a 47-27 edge in rebounds, including 21 off the offensive glass.

The schedule becomes more rigorous as VU travels to Panama City, FL. over the weekend to play Gulf Coast and Northwest Florida.

“With a little bit of experience I think we will be OK,” Meeks said of the upcoming Florida trip. “I like the upside of this team and they are playing with a lot of effort right now.”
