HICKS — It’s hard enough beating good basketball teams.

HICKS — It’s hard enough beating good basketball teams.

But when those same teams blister the nets with an amazing shooting percentage, it gets even tougher to win.

Just ask the Hicks Lady Pirates.

The Anacoco Lady Indians hit 20 of its first 27 shots en route to building a huge halftime lead, beating the Lady Pirates on Tuesday night in District 4-B play, 79-37.

With the victory, the Lady Indians improved to 22-6 overall, 3-1 in league play heading into a matchup on the road tonight against the Hornbeck Lady Hornets.

Hicks dropped to 12-17 overall, 1-3 in the league.

Anacoco hit its first five shots of the game to take a 10-0 lead, getting two buckets each from Whitney Goins and Korie Kreps, along with a layup by senior Allie Haymon.

The lead grew to 17-3 on a couple of buckets from Annabelle Sellers, but Hicks battled back to cut the gap to 18-10 on a pair of baskets by eighth-grader Chloe Wilbanks.

But Cammy Hooks drilled a pair of 3-pointers near the end of the first frame to give Anacoco a 24-10 lead going into the second quarter.

Anacoco continued its torrid shooting pace, scoring the first 19 points of the second period, going into the locker room with a 51-14 lead, having made 74 percent of its shots (20-of-27) in the first half of play.

Though the shooting percentage dwindled a bit for Anacoco in the second half, the Lady Indians were able to still finish the game shooting 61 percent overall as they coasted to the win.

Goins and Hooks each had 14 points to lead the Lady Indians in the victory, while Kreps and Sellers were also in double figures with 13 and 11 points, respectively.

In all, the Lady Indians had a total of 10 players score in the win over Hicks.

The Lady Pirates had one player score in double figures in the contest and that was Wilbanks with 15 points.

Shaley Charrier finished the game with nine points in the loss for the Lady Pirates.
