The Liberal Redskins dug a hole early and saw the second strong three-point shooting team in as many nights in a 62-41 loss to Bartlesville Saturday night in The Big House.

Liberal trailed 9-0 midway through the first quarter before hitting their first basket and only managed one basket and two free throws in the first quarter.

The Bruins built an early 12-4 lead and used a strong performance at the free throw line in the second quarter to climb out to a 27-11 halftime lead.

But it was a barrage of three-point baskets in the second half that sealed the fate of the Redskins. Bartlseville connected on six long-range bombs to keep the Redskins at a distance.

Still, Liberal was only outscored by five in the second half.

DeVondre Livingston led the Redskins with 14 points, Andre Jackson had 12, and OsValdo Villarreal had eight.

It was the second night in a row that a team had success from beyond the three-point line against the Redskins defense in the early portion of the season.

Liberal (1-2) will travel to Gruver, Texas, Tuesday.
