Briley Palmer has led the Mineral Area College women’s basketball team to two wins over two ranked teams in her first two games as the head coach. The Cardinals have an early season rematch this Saturday in a return trip to Vicennes University in Indiana. The Cardinals beat the Trailblazers 74-64 in their opener one week ago in the 2021 debut. Point guard Jayla Sample supplied 25 in the win. Coach Palmer says they can’t expect this game to go exactly like the last one.
Vincennes has also played twice this year and they beat Jeffeson College on Thursday.
