Becky Evans is the little engine who could. She’s also the little engine who fuels the Lebanon Valley College women’s basketball team.
For as Evans goes, so go the Flying Dutchmen.
On Saturday afternoon at Lou Sorrentino Gymnasiun, Evans was again on top of her game. Her play propelled the Valley women to a 74-63 home triumph over Misericordia.
After the Flying Dutchmen forged a 33-32 edge at the break, they outscored Misercordia 41-31 over the second 20 minutes of action. But Evans was all over floor in both halves.
The junior guard out of Pine Grove totaled 21 points on 40 percent shooting from the field and five-for-five free throwing. Over her 37 minutes of action, Evans also contributed five assists, four rebounds and three steals to the LVC cause.
Evans was also a key cog in a scholastic program at Pine Grove that has enjoyed both regular and post-season success during the 2010s.
