The Complex at VSU proved once again difficult for visiting teams to leave with a win. The Blazers combined record for home games was 25-5, and ended another home season this past Saturday with wins over West Georgia.
VSU women's head basketball coach Kiley Hill says,
"It was a huge win, I mean both teams, West Georgia was playing for their lives because they know how important the game was in the standings and I think our kids knew too."
VSU men's head basketball coach Mike Helfer adds,
"For us to play for a number two seed right now is a great position for us to be in and for these young kids we have it's a good learning tool to come through."
The Blazers finish up the remaining two games on the schedule on the road now, where VSU has struggled. The Men are (2-4) away from the Complex while the Women are (1-9).
Hill adds,
"We've been a very poor road team throughout this year and it had a lot to do with passing and shooting a little bit, especially on the road. Hopefully today we turned a corner and move forward."
Helfer adds,
"Each and every night in the Gulf South, they're all going to be tough so w have to find a way to go Thursday and kind of take some of the energy we gained at the end of this game and take it on the road to Pensacola. It's going to be two incredibly good basketball games that we have to play well in."
Every win is crucial for VSU, the Men and the Women are second in GSC East with only a half game lead for third as the conference tournament is on the horizon.
