Blount averaged 26.3 points during the Gents three games in five days to pace Centenary to a 2-1 record. The Shreveport, La., native is 30 points away from breaking the 1,000-career-point plateau. The senior scored a season-high 28 points in the Maroon and White’s victory over intra-city foe LSU-Shreveport. Blount added 27 against East Texas Baptist and 24 against Louisiana College.

He finished the week shooting 68.6-percent from the field, 66.7 from behind the arc and was 23-of-26 from the charity stripe. Blount ranked third on the team in rebounds with 12, including 11 on the defensive end.
