  Tre Hayes fired in 22 for Royse City, while Jamie Briceno pumped in 21.

  “It was a big win,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “This (Royse City) was the second-place team in our district. Some of my shooters did not have their best shooting night. But we never quit. They kept working. We stayed mentally strong. We made the big shots at the end. Our new team motto is: ‘One game at a time.’”

  Royse City and Greenville traded the lead back and forth through the first quarter, which ended with Greenville holding a 22-21 advantage.

  The Lions then outscored Royse City 17-13 in the second quarter to grab a 39-34 halftime lead.

  Royse City then outscored the home team 13-10 in the third quarter to get within 49-47 after three quarters.

  Each team scored 20 in the fourth quarter, with Dickeson’s 3-point play being the difference.

  Greenville is now 13-12 for the season and 2-4 in district play, while Royse City falls to 14-9 and 4-2.
