Mesquite led by nine at halftime and then used a 21-6 run in the third quarter to extend the advantage to 44-20. The Rangers made a charge with the outcome out of reach, but it fell well short.

Lakeycia Bables paced the Skeeters with 17 points. Jene Samuels was also in double figures with 12, while Cha’Quayla Green and Aniya Harrison each added seven.

Sunnyvale, who is ranked No. 7 in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Class 4A state poll, remained undefeated, improving to 10-0 with two victories.

The Raiders rolled over Van Alstyne on Monday with a 75-31 rout.

Daniela Marcor led all scorers with 19 points, Takoya Stallings had 17 and Micah Russell chipped in with nine.

The Raiders followed that up with a victory over Dallas Life Oak Cliff on Tuesday.

West Mesquite took care of Spruce on Tuesday with a 52-36 win. The Wranglers built a 30-16 lead at halftime and kept Spruce at arm’s length the rest of the way.
