Roundup: VMI goes to 3-0, UVa. women fall at Tennessee

Keith Gabriel’s step-back three-pointer with 4:51 left keyed a 9-1 run and sent the VMI Keydets to a 65-55 win over the Jacksonville State Gamecocks in non-conference basketball action Thursday night at Cameron Hall in Lexington, Va.

The win pushed VMI to a 4-0 record for the first time since 1985-86 and just the third time in program history, and gave the Keydets a chance to start a year 5-0 for the first time ever when they take on Southern Virginia on Tuesday night.

On this evening, however, Stan Okoye had his third consecutive double-double, scoring 18 points and grabbing 10 rebounds to pace VMI. Gabriel had 15 points for VMI, including eight over the final 5:26, and now sits just three points shy of 1,000 for his career.
