The Arkadelphia Lady Badgers (12-6) notched another win in their historic rivalry against the Malvern Lady Leopards (0-14) Tuesday night with a 68-45 win.

Another stellar performance by senior guard Liyah Smith, tallying 18 points in the win, 15 of which were from beyond the arc, was a catalyst for the Lady Badgers, while sophomore forward Raygan Harris had a breakout game with another 18-piece for Arkadelphia. This was Harris’ first game of the season in double-digit scoring, with 10 coming in the third quarter.

Of the 68 points scored by the Lady Badgers, 27 of them came from three-point range, as four separate players made one at some point in the game. Half of them came in the third quarter, where Arkadelphia scored 25 points in the period, with Smith and Harris combining for 19 in the period.
