Blinn coach ties program record for victories
TERRELL, Texas – Jeff Jenkins' 200th victory at Blinn College came in one of the program's highest-scoring games.
The 19th-ranked Buccaneers defeated Southwest Christian College 100-57 here Tuesday night in a game that tied Jenkins for the most wins in Blinn women's basketball history. The win, which improved the Buccaneers to 7-0 on the season, tied Jenkins with Wayne Williams, who has held the program wins record since 1993.
Jenkins is in his 11th season with the Buccaneers, compiling a 200-123 record over that span. While working at his first job at Midwestern State University, Jenkins spent two years as a coach under Williams. Jenkins will get a shot at sole possession of the record Thursday, when the Bucs host Western Texas College at 5:30 p.m. in the Blinn P.E. Building.
Fatima Adams, a freshman forward from Bryan Rudder, led the Buccaneers' effort with 20 points.
"She was just making plays," Jeknins said. "Offensive rebounds, driving from the top, making jump shots – she scored in a lot of different ways."
Blinn led 48-28 by halftime.
"We have a lot of depth," Jenkins said. "This was a good game to get a lot of people playing time and let the bench play quite a bit. I don't think anyone played more than 20 minutes."
Freshman guard Danielle Espinoza went down with an ankle injury early in the game and did not play in the second half.
