Basketball hosts Blinn Saturday

Bulldog basketball hosts coach Scott Schumacher’s Blinn Buccaneers at 4 pm Saturday at the Wolens Special Events Center.

Navarro (7-5 / 1-1) is coming off a tough 63-61 loss to Lee at Baytown on Wednesday, while Blinn (8-3 / 0-2) was stunned 71-70 at home by Bossier Parish.

In their final home game before the semester break, the Bulldogs will try to improve their 5-1 homecourt record before they venture onto the road for games next Wednesday at Beeville against Coastal Bend and Friday at Tomball against Lone Star-Tomball.

In other significant league crossover matchups Saturday, zone leaders Lee (8-4 / 2-0) and Kilgore (10-0 / 2-0) clash at Masters Gymnasium.  Lee as Region XIV Tournament champion, and Kilgore, as an at-large selection, represented the league at the NJCAA Tournament at Hutchinson, Ks., last March.

Saturday’s schedule:

Blinn at Navarro, 4 pm; Lee at Kilgore, 4 pm; San Jacinto at Paris, 4 pm; Tyler at Jacksonville, 4 pm; Lamar State-Port Arthur at Panola, 4 pm; Coastal Bend at Bossier Parish, 6 pm; Trinity Valley at Angelina, 6 pm.
