It’s tough to beat a squad when 3-points shots are falling, especially in the first half.

The Plainview High School girls basketball team proved that by sinking four of its six 3-pointers in the first half Saturday during a 39-30 win over Blanchard to win the Madill Winter Classic.

The Lady Indians won the title with a team effort as five athletes finished with at least a point, led by Emilee Hudson’s game-high 15 points.

Emilee Hedger and Reagan Chaney each scored eight, while Riley Grant added seven.

Plainview found early success from 3-point range as Hedger and Hudson combined for three 3-pointers to give the Lady Indians a 16-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Blanchard rallied though, inching within three points at halftime thanks to a 14-point second quarter.

It was a different story in the second half though, as Plainview outscored the Lady Lions 16-10 to pick up the win and the Winter Classic championship.

The Lady Indians are idle until the New Year when they host Ada at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 5
