December 8, 2018 / Lady Trailblazers bounce back with win
CENTRALIA, Ill. -- After a disappointing loss on the road Wednesday
night, the Vincennes University women’s basketball team hoped to get
back to its winning ways on Saturday.
A struggling Kaskaskia team was just what the Lady Trailblazers
needed to get back on track.
Ivanda Hudjakova led a trio of double-digit scorers for
the Trailblazers with 12 points en route to a 74-37 win over its
District P foes.
With the win, the Trailblazers improve to 9-4 on the season and 4-1
against district opponents.
The Trailblazers started slowly in previous games.
Not on Saturday.
VU led 23-2 after the first frame and never looked back.
Fess Hawkins and
Sofya Besedina both recorded double-doubles in the win.
Hawkins finished with 11 points and 10 boards, while Besedina came
off the bench for her first double-double of the season with 10 points
and 10 rebounds.
Jaynice Stovall added to her National Junior College
Athletic Association Division I steals lead with eight more on
Saturday to go along with seven points and four assists.
Cristina De La Cruz continues to give VU a spark off the
bench as the sophomore guard contributed seven points and five steals
in the win.
The Trailblazers return to the court on Dec. 17 at Lincoln Trail.
