While the Redskins continue to learn the
system of coach Scott Hinkle, the top-ranked
Hays Indians have been a model of stability
under long-term coach Rick Keltner.
The comfort level of the players with their
system was apparent, and the experienced Hays
Indians executed with ease while the Redskins
struggled in a 55-22 loss.
Hays wasted no time jumping on top of the
Redskins with a three pointer in the first 20
seconds, and by the end of the first quarterHays
had a 20-10 advantage.
Blake Stout kept the Redskins close early with
two big threes, but the Redskins never had a
chance to get a clean outside shot again the rest
of the night.
Hays defendersmight as well have been inside
the pink uniforms of the Redskins as tight as
they played defense, and Liberal committed
lethal turnovers, helping the Indians turn the
game into a rout.
By half, the Redskins trailed 33-14.
Hays opened the second half with a pair of
threes, and the Redskins only managed three
points in the entire quarter.
By the end of the period, Liberal trailed 42-
17. Kylan Thomas provided Liberal’s only offense
in the fourth quarter, scoring a basket and three
free throws, but there was no comeback against
the top team in Class 5A, and the Redskins fell
Thomas ended the game with six, and along
with Stout’s two threes led the team. Nolan
Larkin added four.
