By ISAAC BOURNE | For The Arkadelphian
The Arkadelphia Lady Badgers (11-6) faced true hardship in their 89-32 loss to the Nashville Scrapperettes (16-3) Friday night, as they went without a single field goal in the first quarter on their way to allowing 40 points in the period.
The full court press played by Nashville overwhelmed the Lady Badgers, forcing countless turnovers due to errant passes from Arkadelphia’s offense.
“Passing is a big thing we stressed,” coach Jonathan Klein said about his team, “especially through pressure, this is something we will continue to work on for the rest of the season.”
Senior guard Liyah Smith was held to her season-low in points, tacking up just four in the contest as sophomore forward Raygan Harris led the team in scoring for the night with 12.
The Lady Badgers hope to bounce back on Tuesday as the Malvern Lady Leopards (0-14) head to town for a high-stakes rivalry game.
