Elijah Elliott, 1st Team

Four Blinn College men’s basketball players have been recognized by Region XIV for their tremendous play this season.

Buccaneer sophomore guards Elijah Elliott and Marco Foster have been tabbed first-team all-region and first-team all-south conference selections, while sophomore guard Damian Watson and freshman guard Masiah Gilyard made the honorable mention list.

Elliott paced Blinn with 16.7 points per game to go with 3.6 assists in 30 games this season. He was also an effective defender with 2.2 steals per contest.

Foster established himself as a dynamic 3-point threat with 86 triples and a 37.7 clip from beyond the arc. Foster also shot 87% from the free throw line. 

Watson, in his second season as a Buc, tallied eight points per game and went almost 60% from the floor. Gilyard debuted for Blinn with an 8.6 scoring average and also shot just below 60% from the floor. 

The Buccaneers finished their season with a 23-8 record which included a 16-3 mark in the Region XIV South Zone. Blinn qualified for the Region XIV Tournament and earned a first-round bye. The Bucs ended their season in the quarterfinal round.
