Fast Start Lifts Tyler Over Blinn
The Buccaneers are now 9-9 overall and 2-5 in region play. Tyler improved to 10-6 and 5-1 in Region XIV.
The Apaches got off to a hot start and led 31-16 at the half.
“I thought our guys played hard,” Blinn head coach Scott Schumacher said. “Tyler played well right from the beginning. They built a big lead and held onto it. That’s a difficult thing to do, but Tyler is a very good team and they did it.”
The Buccaneers will return to action when they travel to face region foe Coastal Bend College at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Beeville, Texas.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 42 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
