CARTHAGE, Texas — Blinn College women's basketball (10-12, 3-7) suffered a 60-49 loss to Panola College on the road Saturday afternoon.
"We competed the entire game, but missed a lot of good shots and went 9-17 from the free throw line," said Jeff Jenkins, Blinn head coach. "We have to be able to make shots, especially on the road, but once again I am proud of the team's effort and energy."
Panola built an early 17-15 lead in the opening quarter and held a 34-26 advantage at the half.
Panola kept the momentum in the third quarter by outscoring Blinn 13-9 to hold onto a 47-35 lead. In the fourth quarter, the Buccaneers played their best quarter by scoring 14 points.
Next, Blinn will return home to take on Kilgore College on Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 5:30 p.m. in the Kruse Center.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 38 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
