VICTORIA, Texas – In a game that was fairly close in the first half, Blinn College men's basketball was able to pull away from Victoria College for a convincing 122-83 victory Friday night in Victoria to move to 1-0 to start the season.
"We ran the floor well, competed and played unselfish basketball," said Blinn head coach Scott Schumacher. "Anytime you can get a win on the road it is big."
Blinn played well in the first half but Victoria was able to hit enough 3-pointers to stay in the game and only trail by six points at the break, 53-47.
The second half was a different story as the Buccaneers were able to wear down Victoria and outscore the home team 69-36 in the final 20 minutes to take home the 39-point victory.
Blinn will now play at home for six consecutive games starting with one against Lone Star College-Tomball Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 32 NJCAA national championships since 1987. For more information, visit www.buccaneersports.com.
