The Thanksgiving break was not near enough to slow down the state-ranked Runnin' Indians on Monday night in Ennis.
Waxahachie jumped out to a 22-5 first-quarter lead and scored at least that many in each of the next three frames of the 95-29 victory.
The 66-point victory came on a night when the Indians shot 50 percent from the field (37-73) and 36 percent from deep (11-30). The high-tempo Runnin' Indians defensive efforts limited the Lions to just 26 percent from the field (20-38) and 18-percent from behind the arc (3-16).
Five Runnin' Indians reached double-figures in the scoring department, led by 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field and 4-of-6 from three-point land by junior point guard BJ Francis.
CJ Noland added 13 points and three rebounds, Darrius Miles finished with 12 points and four rebounds, Mekai Pope added 11 points and four boards and Da'marie Watkins rounded out the double-digit effort with 10 points.
Kabreyon Jackson (2 points) and Christian O'Donell led the Runnin' Indians with seven rebounds, with the latter chipping in nine points.
Ethan Whiturs (7 points), Shorter (6 points), Adrian Overton (4 points) and JT Warren (3 points) rounded out the scoring for Waxahachie.
The Runnin' Indians, who entered the week ranked No. 6 in the TABC 6A poll and improved to 4-0 on the season, return to action this weekend in the Arlington Classic held Thursday through Saturday.
