The Vincennes University Women's Basketball Team got out to a 19-7 lead on visiting Olney Central early Saturday night and clung to a slim halftime lead before letting the lead get away in the second half and dropping a 70-58 decision to the Lady Knights.
Sophomore Zhanna Chukhrii led VU with 22 points and freshman Chelsea Jellison had 16. Both hit four 3-pointers each.
Olney Central scored the first five points of the second half and pulled within 38-36 before Chukhrii ended the skid for VU with a trey and kept the Trailblazers in front, 41-36. But the Lady Knights grabbed their first lead of the game at 49-47 and never looked back for the win.
