Waxahachie ran into a DeSoto buzzsaw Tuesday night at Mike Turner Gymnasium.
The Lady Indians even found themselves down to just five players after Cassidy Morgan fouled out with 1:22 to play in the fourth quarter, ultimately falling at home to the Lady Eagles, 68-40.
"I thought we played well in the second and I don't think we played well at all in the first half and that was the difference in the ballgame," Waxahachie head girls' basketball coach Lesli Priebe said. "We have to go to Cedar Hill on Friday, so it is not going to get any easier. We just have to keep working to improve."
Mya Williams scored 13 of her team-high 16 points in the second half to lead Waxahachie.
Rayna Ross finished with 13 points and seven rebounds, while Morgan scored six, Paris Gantt had three and Ja'Kyah Head added two points to her five rebounds.
Jordan McGee didn't reach the scoring column but did manage three rebounds and a team-high four assists.
The Lady Indians, who were outrebounded 52-21 on the evening, shot 29 percent from the field (12-42).
The Lady Indians return to action at 6 p.m. Friday at home against Mansfield Lake Ridge.
