Dederick Lee became just the third player in Arkansas state history to reach the 2,500 point plateau.

Lee poured in 19 points Friday night to help Clarksville take down Harrison, 75-69. Lee needed just six points to get to the milestone.

Bennie Fuller is the state’s all-time leading scorer with 4,896 points (Arkansas School for the Deaf, 1968-71) while Jim Bryan (Valley Springs, 1955-58) is second with 2,792 points.

Clarksville (14-3) won the past two 4A state championship and the Panthers look like the primary contender for the 5A title this season.

Lee now has 2,515 points, just 276 points away from second place. The Panthers’ senior is averaging 17.7 points per game. He’s spent more time this season getting his teammates involved.
