Sulphur unleashed a barrage of 3-pointers to break open a close game as the top-ranked Lady Bulldogs defeated Lindsay, 65-46, Thursday night at State Fair Arena.

Sulphur (28-0) had four players score in double figures, led by sophomore Bailee Eldred with 17 points.

Eldred, who entered the state tournament averaging just seven points per game, was 6-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line.

“Bailee really showed up tonight and made a huge difference for us,” Sulphur coach Toby Todd said. “That's one of her better games of the year and what a time to do that.”

No. 18 Lindsay (20-9), making its first appearance in the state tournament since 1989, stayed close for a half.

Ashley Hughes 3-pointer before the buzzer gave Sulphur a lead of 34-27 at halftime, its largest of the first half.

In the second half, the assault from behind the 3-point line began for Sulphur as Tierani Richardson sank three and Eldred hit another. Sulphur led by as many as 14 points in the third quarter.
