GARDEN CITY — The Liberal Lady Redskins extended their winless streak in the Western Athletic Conference Tuesday to 15 games, and their last attempt was not even close.

Garden City swept the WAC with an exclamation point at the end, knocking off Liberal 88-22 that ended with a running clock in the fourth quarter and one of the worst losses in school history. Garden City won its frist-ever girls basketball WAC title with a perfect 8-0 record.

Liberal started with a 5-5 tie in the opening moments of the game before Garden City went on a 21-2 run to take a 26-7 lead.

The Lady Redskins struggled with turnovers, and when they did get to shoot, the rebounds were owned by Garden City.

Perhaps for the first time in school history, Liberal faced a running clock in the fourth quarter due to the 46-point deficit. Liberal only scored one basket in the fourth quarter.

“That was a very good basketball team we played tonight,” Liberal coach Bill Baird said. “We have to put this one away, don’t look at it, burn the game film and move forward.”

Liberal continued to develop young players while Garden City kept their starters on the floor until the final buzzer.

Friday, the Lady Redskins have one more chance to earn a WAC win in the regular season finale against Dodge City in The Big House.

“Dodge is a game we can compete,” Baird said. “If we can defend and rebound we should have a chance.
