BRENHAM, Texas – Freshman forward Kendall Deveaux scored a game-high 16 points and four other Buccaneers scored in double digits here Monday night as Blinn College defeated Lone Star College-Tomball 91-64 at the Blinn P.E. Building.
Deveaux, a 6-foot-8, 230-pound freshman from Nassau, Bahamas, led the Buccaneers to the non-conference victory. His 16 points were a season high.
"Kendall's a kid who keeps getting better every day in practice," said coach Scott Schumacher, whose Buccaneers improved to 5-4 on the season. "It's a testament to how hard he works in practice and the attitude he has. When he's a sophomore, he's going to be really good because of his work ethic."
The Buccaneers led 48-31 by halftime.
"I thought they all played well," Schumacher said. "I thought we played hard and I thought we guarded well. We turned the ball over way too much, but from an effort standpoint I thought we played well."
The Buccaneers travel to Louisiana for a 7:30 p.m. Region XIV Conference game against Bossier Parish on Wednesday before returning to the Blinn P.E. Building Saturday for another league game against Navarro College.
