The Lady Wolves fell 73-45 to Virginia State (6-4) in the final non-conference tilt for Cheyney (0-10). Cheyney was led by Aerie DeJesus and Brooke Garrett. DeJesus scored 13 points while playing all 40 minutes. Garrett added 10 points.
Cheyney trailed 14-7 before rallying and cutting the lead to one 17-16. However, the Lady Trojans closed the first half (5:21) on a 22-1 run to take commanding 39-17 lead.
Cheyney came out of the locker room on fire. The Lady Wolves scored on four of their first five possessions to cutting the lead to 14 (39-25) but would get no closer. The Lady Trojans would answer with eight straight of their own to bring the lead back up to 22 with fourteen minutes to play.
Cheyney will take three weeks off to get healthy and regroup before finishing off the cross over schedule on January 6 and 7 at Slippery Rock and Mercyhurst.
