Virginia Union University’s Jasmine Carter had a double-double while teammate Rejoice Spivey scored 20 points, but Indiana University of Pennsylvania defeated the Lady Panthers 66-58 in the second round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament on Saturday, March 16, in Glenville, W.V.

Carter scored 11 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the game.  It was the 10th double-double of the season for Carter.

“I was really excited about playing IUP, which is a really good team,” said VUU Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert.  “They execute well and have some good pieces, but I thought we were up to the challenge.”

VUU’s Shareka McNeill scored 14 points while Nicole Floyd pulled down 11 rebounds.

“I liked the way we played for three quarters,” said Gilbert.  “We faced some adversity by not knowing what we would get out of Nicole Floyd.  “But I was just so impressed with the way she was able to bounce back and be a steady inside force for the team today, especially on the glass.”

The loss gave VUU a final 2018-19 record of 28-3 while IUP is now 28-3Print Friendly Version
