VU Trailblazers drop game to SWIC to snap 12-game winning streak

The Vincennes University Men's Basketball Team saw its 12-game winning streak end Wednesday night when Southwestern Illinois ground out a 72-68 win over the Trailblazers at the VU P.E. Complex.

Freshman Jeremiah Bell led VU with 16 points and sophomore Justin King added 10. Southwestern Illinois forward Chris Galbreath scored a game-high 21.

VU (14-4) led 36-34 at halftime but Galbreath took command early in the second half to help the Blue Storm engage the NJCAA 17th-ranked Trailblazers in a back-and-forth game that featured six ties and 14 lead changes.

The Trailblazers and Blue Storm were tied at 58-all late in the game, but Southwestern Illinois won the battle of the boards (36-30) and did enough at the free throw line to open up a seven-point lead in the closing seconds. VU was victimized by mediocre free throw shooting. The Trailblazers were 21-of-34 at the stripe, including 10 misses in the first half. VU also shot a less-than-stellar 36 percent from the floor (5-of-16 in 3-pointers).

VU will host Lake Land at 7 p.m. Saturday and then head to Shawnee in Ullin, IL, on Wednesday, Jan. 20.
