The Liberal Redskin freshmen let a late lead escape, and the Garden  
City Buffaloes were able to move to a 50-47 lead with seconds  
remaining to play.
But a huge three-point basket by Kenlee West forced overtime, and the  
Redskins were able to outscore the Buffaloes by one, 56-55, for the win.
Liberal had a five-point lead midway through the fourth quarter.
But fouls allowed Garden City to make up the deficit without the  
clock running.
Garden City took a 45-43 lead, but the Redskins tied the game up, 45-45.
The Buffaloes continued to score late, and Garden City had a 50-45  
lead with less than one minute to play.
Liberal connected on two free throws while the Buffaloes missed a  
pair before West came down and drained a three-pointer to force  
overtime.
Garden City took an early lead in the extra period, but the Redskins  
quickly answered and took a lead of their own.
Both teams had chances to score in the final seconds, but the  
Redskins could not build the lead, and the Buffaloes missed a  
potential game-winner.
