  No. 3 state-ranked McKinney North spoiled Greenville’s Jam the Gym night, handing the Lady Lions an 85-16 loss before more than 1,000 fans on Tuesday.

  All 11 players that suited up for McKinney North scored as the Lady Bulldogs outscored Greenville in all four quarters.

  McKinney North stayed undefeated in District 13-4A at 12-0 while the Lady Lions dropped to 2-10   with two district games remaining.

  “We expected to play a better game tonight,” said Greenville coach Lesa Darst. “When we can’t capitalize on our offense it’s deflating. I think we showed some promise the first quarter. The second quarter took something out of us. And we played the No. 3 team in the state. They’re a great team.”

  Greenville stayed within 14-4 after one quarter but McKinney North took charge in the second quarter, outscoring the Lady Lions 29-2 to build a 43-6 halftime advantage.

  Chanterria Jackson led the Lady Bulldogs with 15 points, while Amy Kleynhans chipped in 11 and London Holland added 10.

  LaQuesha Williams topped Greenville with six points, getting all six points on free throws.

  McKinney North limited Greenville to only three field goals, two by Jordan Sweat and one by Kassidy Watson.

  On “Jam the Gym” night Tuesday, No. 22 state-ranked McKinney North’s Bulldogs rolled to a 79-59 victory over the Greenville Lions.

  Steele Douglas fired in 23 points to lead McKinney North, while Julian Pearre pumped in 16, including three dunks, and Colin Curran tallied 15 as the Bulldogs improved to 20-5 for the season and 10-0 in district.

  John Franklin and Justin Wade fired in 12 points each to lead Greenville.

  Jerry Dickeson tallied nine for the Lions, who fell to 12-10 and 4-6.

  “Lack of execution on both ends of the floor,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “We played a better second half. We did a better job of getting the ball down low in the second half. But we didn’t execute well on the defensive end all game long. Now we have to prepare for Denison and learn from our mistakes tonight.”

  After being outscored 49-20 in the first half, the Lions actually outscored the No. 22 state-ranked Bulldogs in the third and fourth quarters.
