King's double-double, Bell's four treys lead VU past Kankakee, 103-83

Sophomore Justin King's double-double of 26 points and 11 rebounds combined with freshman Jeremiah Bell's 24 points and freshman Nate Hansen's 18 to power the Vincennes University Trailblazers past Kankakee, 103-83, Saturday night in the last game of the VU Men's Basketball Sodexo Classic at the VU P.E. Complex.

Bell scored 18 of his points and King tallied 14 of his in the second half to pull VU (4-3) from a one-point halftime deficit and help the Trailblazers extend their lead to 23 at one point. The lead was built primarily on a 13-1 VU spurt early in the second 20 minutes. All the offensive production came after VU trailed by 11 with just less than 6 minutes remaining in the first half.

Bell's four 3-pointers paced an 11-trey barrage by the Trailblazers, who shot 60 percent overall for the game. King's 11 boards led VU's 32-22 rebounding advantage over the Cavaliers.

The Trailblazers will travel to Olney Central on Wednesday. Tip-off for that game will be at 8:30 p.m. ("Vincennes time).
