BRENHAM, Texas -- With the Bossier Parish Lady Cavaliers trying to limit the Blinn women’s basketball team’s chance inside, Blinn turned to its outside perimeter game and made Bossier Parish pay.
Behind 10 3-pointers on the night, including five from sophomore Tayler Weiks, the Buccaneers beat the Lady Cavaliers 78-53 in the teams’ Region XIV Conference opener Wednesday night in the Blinn P.E. Building.
“We shot the ball much better tonight from the perimeter,” Blinn (9-2, 1-0) coach Jeff Jenkins said.
That they did. Coming off a 3-for-25 performance Monday night against Hill College, Blinn nailed 10 threes to pull away. Against Bossier Parish’s zone defense, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Weiks scored all 15 of her points off threes, and Shunta Nevitt hit two and Brianna Luton and Katrina Hayden each hit one.
Those 3-pointers allowed Blinn to build a substantial 44-19 lead in the first half.
Nevitt finished with eight points, Luton scored seven and Hayden scored six.
Sophomore Fatima Adams scored a team-high 27 points.
“It’s nice to win a big game,” Jenkins said. “We’ve got two big games this semester: tonight and Saturday vs. Kilgore. Hopefully we can take care of business Saturday and go into Christmas break on a good note.”
