She is not someone you would want to challenge in a game of horse. Kaylan Richardson can shoot the ball from the outside,  and Nov. 24,  she proved it to the University of Cincinnati-Clermont.

Richardson, a senior shooting guard for Alice Lloyd College, almost single-handedly beat the Cougars that night by connecting on nine 3-pointers,  scoring a game-high 29 points.

The Lady Eagles won the game 77-58.

Trailing 31-29 entering the second half, Richardson proceeded to make seven of her nine 3s, bringing her team back for the win.

For the season, the senior is averaging 16.3 points a contest. According to a release from Alice Lloyd, Richardson is also third in the nation with 4.5 3-pointers made per game.

Richardson played high school basketball at Owen County High School and is the older sister of current Lady Rebel Rianna Gayheart.
