HP also turned in its second consecutive stellar defensive effort following a 57-30 road win over North Forney on Jan. 14. The Scots (18-4, 5-1) will return home to face Royse City on Friday.

In girls action, HP stayed unbeaten in 13-5A play by completing a season sweep of Greenville on Tuesday by a 71-24 score. Paris Lauro scored 24 points to pace the Lady Scots (19-8, 8-0).

That came four days after HP wrapped up the first half of the district slate with a hard-fought 50-39 victory over North Forney. Maddie Heiss led a balanced attack with 11 points for the Lady Scots, who will look to extend a five-game winning streak on Friday at Royse City.
