HILLSBORO - The Bryan Lady Vikings were down by 11 points in the second quarter, but fought back to claim a 61-60 victory over Allen in a non-district battle of 5A teams.

Bryan coach John Shelton said that Ladoris Beckworth and Jessica Walker had huge games to carry the team. Beckworth had a double-double with 11 points and 11 boards. Walker also scored 11 points and added nine rebounds. Walker led the team with seven steals and had three assists and a block.

After falling behind, the Lady Vikings changed their game plan.

"Our half-court defensive pressure worked," Shelton said. "We turned it into a half-court game and we executed very well."

Bryan outscored Allen 18-9 in the third quarter for 44-41 lead.

Shaneka Mason led the Lady Vikings with six assists. Amber Densey dropped the only 3-pointer for Bryan.

Bryan will travel to Houston on Friday to take on St. Agnes at 6 p.m.
