Keke Keith had one of the best scoring nights of her high school career Tuesday evening, pumping in a game high 29 points to help lead the Mexia Ladycats to a 54-41 bi-district playoff win over No. 15 ranked China Spring.
After a close first three quarters of play, Mexia dominated the fourth period with Keith leading the way and scoring 10 of her 29 points in the final period. The Ladycats defense was too much for the Lady Cougars to handle in the fourth as they tried to get back into the game late by shooting three’s, but the shots were either contested, too short or clanking off the rim.
