Lux records eighth double-double in win 999 for Bentley coach

WEST HAVEN, Conn. – Win number 999 is in the books for legendary Bentley University women’s basketball coach Barbara Stevens after her team used a dominating fourth quarter to overtake the University of New Haven, 82-70, in Northeast-10 Conference action Saturday afternoon at Charger Gymnasium.

Stevens will now make her first attempt at joining women’s basketball coaching titans Pat Summitt, Tara VanDerveer, Sylvia Hatchell and Geno Auriemma in the exclusive club of 1,000-game winners when her Falcons, seventh ranked in Division II with a 16-1 record, host Adelphi University Wednesday at 5:30 pm.

Stevens’ team trailed a hot-shooting New Haven team most of the opening three quarters but simply took over the fourth at both ends of the court. The Falcons, after finishing the third with a three-point play from junior center Victoria Lux to get within 64-60, poured in the first 18 of the fourth.
