Vilain shot 13-for-18 from the floor, 2 of 2 from behind the arc and 3 of 3 from the free throw line to end with 31 points and become the second player this season with a 30-point game. She also added a career night on the boards with nine offensive and seven defensive rebounds for a career-best 16 caroms while also adding four assists on the night.
