Tyler High’s guard duo of Kamora Jackson and freshman Kalyse Buffin helped the Lady Lions grab an early lead on the road against their crosstown rivals.

In the second half, the Tyler Legacy Lady Raiders were able to impose their will inside with their post trio of Nyla Inmon, Akya Turner and Taliyah Mumphrey to take a 51-34 win on Tuesday night at Tyler Legacy Varsity Gymnasium.

Inmon, Turner and Mumphrey combined for 29 points and 30 rebounds in the game. Inmon finished with 16 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks. Turner had 10 points and six boards, and Mumphrey added 3 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks.

Four-year varsity senior Aaliyah Campbell had her say in the outcome, as well.
