A little intensity went a long way for the Lady Roos on Friday and the result was a 54-47 win over Robinson on the road.

"We got a couple steals and that picked up the intensity," Killeen head coach Latisha Williams said. "And we got some transition baskets from that."

Tied 11-11 after the first quarter, Killeen's intensity led the way to a 28-19 stretch over the next two quarters to pull away.

Jasmine Goodwine led Killeen (7-10) with 23 points to go with eight rebounds.

Temple 55, Copperas Cove 36 - At Temple, the Lady Bulldawgs scored less than 10 points in each of the opening three quarters and dug themselves a hole they couldn't get out of on the road, evening their District 12-5A record.

Temple (14-4, 1-1) led just 8-6 after one quarter, but outscored Cove (11-8, 1-1) 35-12 over the next two periods. Freshman Mikayla Blount led Cove with seven points, while Jasmin Johnson, Sarai Rodriguez and Brittany Gamble each added five.

Florence 24, Lexington 23 - At Florence, Reagan Isbell scored 10 points, including a go-ahead basket with 10 seconds remaining, to give the Lady Buffs a victory.

Chelsey Lansford also scored 10 points for Florence (9-8, 1-1 District 27-2A).

The Lady Buffs trailed 18-12 at halftime, but held Lexington to five points in the second half.

After Isbell's pull-up jumper from 15 feet, Lexington missed two shots and fell to 0-2 in district play.

Florence plays at Thorndale on Monday at 1:30 p.m.

Salado 60, Austin Hyde Park 26 - At Salado, Meredith Ward scored 19 points and Kirstie McGillick added 15 as the Lady Eagles moved over .500.
