BRENHAM —

For the first 20 minutes of Wednesday's Region XIV between the Jacksonville College women and the Blinn Lady Buccaneers, it appeared as though the Lady Jaguars could be poised for an upset of the No. 14-ranked team in the country.

The second half was a different story, however, as Blinn got the ship righted and went onto sail past the JC ladies, 68-48.

The Lady Bucs moved toe 22-5, 12-3 Region XIV while the Lady Jags slipped to 14-12, 8-7.

The win was Blinn's fifth in its last six outings.

The Lady Buc defense held JC to 31.1-percent (19 of 61) from the field on the evening.

Deva'Nyar Workman tossed in 14 points to pace the Lady Jag effort while Susan Agesen knock in 10, including sinking a couple of rainbows.

Workman finished off her double-double by hauling down 16 rebounds.

Christina Robinson, a former Blinn player, scored seven points against her old teammates.

Agesen added five boards for the lady jags.

Ally Moore scored five points and had three steals and three assists.

Blinn's Fatima Adams continued her offensive dominance in the conference by tossing in a game-high 22 points, while going 9 of 13 from the field.

She also came down with 11 boards.

Next up for the JC ladies is a home date against Angelina College at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Saturday's contest will be JC's annual Breast Cancer Awareness game, with all fans encouraged to wear pink to show support for the cause.

Following the women's tilt, mens teams from the two colleges will take to the floor of the Curtis Carroll Fieldhouse. Tip-off should get under way around 4 p.m.
