faced a 20-point deficit before hitting a couple last minute baskets
to make the score at halftime 30-14.
The deficit seemed to motivate the Redskins.
In the third quarter Liberal outscored Garden 15-2 to make it 32-29.
Similar results came out of the fourth quarter with tough defensive
play and rebounding leading to many shot opportunities to get the

Again the ’Skins would obliterate the Buffaloes in the quarter,
outscoring the Buffaloes in the fourth, 19-3, to take the lead and
then to end the game with Liberal on top 48-35.
Leading the junior varsity in scoring was Tyson Deaton who put up 15
points. Deaton ended the night with 30 points by coming off the bench
and scoring another 15 in the varsity game. Kowan Russell and Kyle
Potts each added 11 in the win.
