The Dulles Lady Vikings’ basketball team had no time to sulk after a season-opening loss on Nov. 5, and bounced right back with a win over a state-ranked opponent the next day to salvage the opening week.

Dulles – who entered the season as the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches’ 18th-ranked team in Class 6A – defeated the TABC’s 23rd-ranked squad in Cypress Creek by a score of 52-46 on Nov. 6. The Lady Vikings had dropped a 55-31 decision to Shadow Creek the previous day, which snapped a 27-game regular season winning streak.

Senior Jakiya Thompson led the way for Dulles (1-1) against Cypress Creek, scoring 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting while adding five steals on the defensive end. Peyton Overton had nine points of her own along with seven rebounds, three assists and three steals, while Dai Dai Powell grabbed six rebounds and had four steals. Overton also had seven rebounds against Shadow Creek on Nov. 5.

The Lady Vikings are set to host Langham Creek Tuesday night before heading to the Friendswood tournament later this week.

Bush 54, Lamar Consolidated 32

The Lady Broncos are already halfway to last season’s win total after a lopsided win last Friday to start the season. Sincere Cobbin had a career-high 14 points to pace a balanced Bush offensive attack that also saw Crystal Schultz score 8 points, while Chelsea Osamor, Adaugo Okorafor, and Kambree Adams had 7 points apiece.

Pearland Dawson 44, Kempner 38

Despite the season-opening loss on Nov. 5, there were a few standout performances for the Lady Cougars. Kelechi Uchem was the star of the night for Kempner, pouring in a career-high 15 points on 7 for 11 shooting while grabbing seven rebounds. Angel Okeke had 10 points and five rebounds, while Heaven Ferguson had a nice all-around game with five rebounds, five assists and six steals.
