Key contributions came from a variety of sources for the Valparaiso University women’s basketball team on Wednesday night in Fort Wayne.
The game was still hanging in the balance with Valpo clinging to a one-point lead with 38 seconds to go. That’s when Grace Hales (Cromwell, Ind. / Westview) fired up a 3-point try from the right corner that left her hands a fraction of a second before the shot clock reached zero. Swish.
That triple helped cap a 68-64 victory over Purdue Fort Wayne that featured signature performances and clutch plays from numerous players – all amounting to a happy bus ride home following a road victory.
