BRENHAM, Texas – Sophomore forward Audrisa Harrison tallied 16 points and 11 of her teammates got on the scoreboard as well as the 10th-ranked Blinn Buccaneers defeated San Jacinto 85-54 Saturday at the Blinn P.E. Building.
Harrison had a double-double on the night with a team-high 10 rebounds, and freshman forward Amari Jones added 14 points.
"Amari has been playing well in practice," said Blinn (21-1, 7-1) coach Jeff Jenkins. "She's 5-11, always plays good defense and I'd say she's our best defender on the perimeter. Now she's starting to hit some open threes and create a little bit."
Blinn led 40-17 by halftime.
"I thought we played well defensively," Jenkins said. "I thought we started out a little slow, but we got a run in the middle of the first half."
"It was fun to play some kids who haven't gotten a chance to play this semester, and I thought they did well," Jenkins said. "I thought Khali played well and I thought Darrecia played well, and Amachi came in and hit a three right off the bench."
Sophomore point guard Julia Jackson led San Jacinto with 20 points. With the loss, the Gators fell to 6-12 on the season and 1-6 in the Region XIV Conference.
The Buccaneers host Panola College at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Blinn P.E. Building.
