GAME STORY: Wylie girls start fast, overcome third-quarter swoon to pull away from Plainview

A big first half for senior Makinlee Bacon staked the Wylie girls basketball team to a double-digit halftime lead, and the Lady Bulldogs withstood a big third quarter rally by Plainview to earn a 53-45 home win Monday in their first game out of the Christmas break.

Bacon hit five 3-pointers during a 15-point first half, fueling Wylie to a 28-12 halftime advantage. But Plainview scored the first 13 points of the third quarter to turn that 12-point deficit into a one-point lead just four minutes into the second half.

From there, though, coach Amy Powell’s squad was able to regroup, pulling back ahead by 10 (41-31) heading into the final quarter and cruising from there to the victory.
