CLEVELAND, Tenn.  - It's still too early to form a concrete opinion on how good the Vincennes University Baseball Team can be in 2016, but the Trailblazers showed in Game 1 of their doubleheader Saturday at Cleveland State that they can pick each other up and find a way to win - even when being nearly no-hit.   VU split the twinbill, winning Game 1 by a 2-0 score...

BELLEVILLE, Ill.  - Nine different players got into the scoring column and contributed to a statistics explosion Saturday for the Vincennes University Women's Basketball Team at Southwestern Illinois in Belleville, IL, as the Trailblazers romped on the host Lady Blue Storm, 65-35, to improve to 24-5 on the season.   Sophomore Chelsea Bentley scored 17 points to lead VU,...

BELLEVILLE, Ill.  - The Vincennes University Men's Basketball Team never got in sync offensively in the first half and dug itself a hole that it could never climb out of Saturday at Southwestern Illinois, and the Trailblazers fell, 73-54, to the host Blue Storm.

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.
