Plano came back in the second half, as the Lady Panthers shot 6/16 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter. The victory was the 28th straight district win for Plano East. They’ll travel to Coppell this Friday, Feb. 4.

Meanwhile, the Plano East (5-5, 23-6) boys team nearly knocked off undefeated Plano in a 46-41 road loss.

The Panthers were winning by three points heading into the final quarter but were outscored 17-9 in the final frame in defeat. Jordan Mizell and Corey Upkins had eight points apiece.
