McKinney North outscores Greenville Lions, Lady Lions


McKINNEY —   McKinney North knocked Greenville out of a tie for first place in District 13-4A, handing the Lions a 92-75 loss on Friday.

  McKinney North jumped out to a 27-13 lead in the first quarter and stayed in front to go 3-0 in district play.

  Jola Otubu fired in 20 points to lead the victorious Bulldogs and Collin Curran added 17.

  Jerry Dickeson led the Lions with 15 points, while Marlon Mack tossed in 13 and D’erren Wilson and Byron Redmon both added 11 as Greenville dropped to 2-1 in district play.
