The Buccaneers rolled to a 101-75 road win over Victoria College in Victoria, Texas, pushing Blinn to 13-6 overall and 7-2 in the Region XIV South Zone.

“We were very focused, we were very unselfish, and we played very, very well defensively,” Buccaneers head coach Scott Schumacher said. “We guarded them excellently and made it very hard for Victoria to score. I was very proud of how our guys played tonight.”

Schumacher was able to empty his bench in the blowout win, a development the coach said had his starters roaring on the sideline.

“All of our guys who start, it means the most to them when our reserves get on the floor because those guys see how hard our bench players work every day in practice,” Schumacher explained. “So, it’s big for them to see their teammates get their opportunities.”

Making the most of their extended playing time were sophomore guard Jakari Marshall and sophomore forward Tyler Jackson, who finished with eight points apiece.

Leading the way for the Bucs was sophomore guard Marco Foster, who tallied 22 points. Freshman forward Jamine Charles continued his recent rise with 18 points and has averaged 13 per game across his last three contests. Sophomore forward Tyler Tsynkevich posted 10 points and sophomore guard Elijah Elliott chipped in eight.

Blinn led 49-21 at the half.

Schumacher said he’s happy with his team’s current streak of success, but said his team is keeping its focus on what’s ahead.

“To be honest with you, I didn’t even realize we had won four in a row,” said Schumacher. “We’re just concerned with staying focused and taking care of business one game at a time, and after that, whatever happens happens.”

The Bucs return home to take on region foe Lamar State College-Port Arthur at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Kruse Center in Brenham, Texas.

Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 42 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
