LUFKIN, Texas – The offense was working well all night for Blinn College women's basketball and the defense stepped up in the second and third quarters to help the Buccaneers to a 76-55 victory over Angelina College Wednesday evening.
Blinn has now won eight consecutive games and improves to 13-5 overall and 6-2 in Region XIV play.

Ke'Asia Williams also added 17 points while Brenisha Coleman was also in double figures with 14 points. Daikea Milton added eight, Jasmine Redmon chipped in seven and Jade Rochelle contributed six points in the victory.
