The Lady Longhorns then put together a 10-2 run over the next four minutes to build a double-digit lead and never looked back. The Ceder Hill advantage had ballooned 21 points, 52-31, by the 3:37 mark of the fourth quarter. The Lady Longhorns cruised home with the 57-41 District 7-6A win.

The Lady Indians were led by Rayna Ross' 13-point, 10-rebound double-double, as well as 10-point night by Mya Williams and Paris Gantt. Cassidy Morgan and Ja'Kyah Head both scored four points.

Waxahachie shot 31 percent from the field (15-49).
