BURNET — There was nothing Lampasas could do. 

Looking to take sole possession of second place in the District 27-4A standings and avenge a home loss from earlier in the season, the No. 23 Lady Badgers had no answer for Burnet’s 3-point shooting.

The Lady Bulldogs made 13 of 27 attempts from behind the arc and were never threatened, cruising to a 66-44 victory.

Burnet lived on its deep shooting in the third quarter, scoring all 12 of its points in the period on 3-pointers and creating a 49-32 lead after seeing a 20-point lead dwindle to 37-27.

Paced by Emma Lewis’ 5-of-10 showing from behind the 3-point arc en route to a game-high 20 points, Burnet finished with as many 3-pointers as free throws in the win.

The Lady Badgers jumped out to a 6-2 advantage to open the game,

but Burnet (25-7, 7-2) responded with a 20-1 outburst, and after taking a 24-9 lead in the second quarter, the run continued.

The Lady Bulldogs’ cushion inflated to 20 points at 30-10 before Lampasas (27-6, 6-3) began to find its offensive rhythm.

The Lady Badgers recorded 14 of the game’s next 19 points before going into the third quarter trailing 37-24.

Lampasas senior guard Kamri Corbin finished with a team-high 15 points to go with eight rebounds, while teammate Diane Hurst had 13 points and five rebounds.

The Lady Badgers, who have already secured a playoff berth, will look to rebound Tuesday, when they complete their regular-season schedule with a home contest against Austin Eastside Memorial.

  • Burnet 66, No. 23 Lampasas 44
