Chicken Express all-star girls classic

GREENVILLE —   Alexis Mason fired in 29 points to earn most valuable player honors and lead the North to a 90-86 victory over the South in the first annual Chicken Express All-Star girls basketball game at the Lions Den Saturday night.

  Mason, a 5-9 senior from McKinney North, also pulled down seven rebounds and handed out seven assists to claim MVP honors for the North team.

  Royse City senior Krystal Pickron managed 20 points, 14 rebounds and two assists to claim MVP honors for the South team.
