HATTIESBURG, Mississippi -- Three Mississippi Valley State women's basketball players had career outings Saturday in the consolation game of the Lady Eagle Thanksgiving Classic as the Devilettes upended Eastern Kentucky, 68-58, at Reed Coliseum.

Freshman Ashley Beals along with twins Joncyee and Jasmyne Sanders each had a double-double to lead the Devilettes (1-6) to its first win of the season. Four MVSU players scored in double figures.

Beals, a Canton native, led MVSU with 19 points and 15 rebounds while Jasmyne Sanders added 16 points and 11 rebounds. Joncyee Sanders chipped in 15 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.

The Devilettes made just 2-of-18 three-point attempts but shot 40 percent and beat the Lady Colonels in the rebounding category 58 to 37. Valley had 21 offensive rebounds.

DeRita Silas put up 13 points off the bench.

MVSU will be back in action next Saturday, Dec. 7, when they travel to face Ole Miss. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
