A halftime deficit did little to deter the Blinn College women’s basketball team Wednesday, as the Buccaneers rallied to defeat Louisiana State University-Eunice in Eunice, La.
A big second half carried Blinn to a 69-54 victory over the Bengals.
The Bucs are now 2-0 overall this season.
“It was a good team road win,” Blinn head coach Jeff Jenkins said. “We got a lot of points off our defense in the second half which allowed us to break the game open.”
The Bucs led 16-13 after the first period but trailed 28-26 at the intermission. A 26-13 third quarter gave the visitors a 52-41 cushion heading into the final period of play.
Up next for the Bucs is a road trip to the Grayson Hoops Classic on the campus of Grayson College in Denison, Texas. Blinn takes on Hill College at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, and Ranger College at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 44 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
