Kevin Livingston won his third consecutive Off the Bench Award at the Colby Orange and Black Classic by scoring 21 points in the championship game to lead Liberal to a 55-41 win.

Alex Gilmore joined Livingston on the all-tournament team, and Landon Harp was recognized on the all-academic tournament team.

“The guys played hard,” Liberal coach Drew Gruver said. “They put together three games in a row. Most of the guys have been here four years in a row. It was nice to finally win it.”

After an early-see-saw battle , the Redskins took control in the third quarter and for the second night in a row was able to finish the game off by holding the lead in the fourth.

Berakah Carter was assigned to control’s Colby’s best scorer in the second half, and he put the clamps on the Eagle.

“If we were handing out game ball,” Berakah deserved one,” Gruver said. “He did a great job defensively, and that led to our victory.”

Livingston scored 21, Jade Cathey had 12, Eric Brown added 10, Kowan Russell scored five, Carter scored five, and Gilmore had 3.

The Redskins (9-2) will continue their road swing Tuesday at Guymon and will return to Western Athletic Conference action Friday at Great Bend.
