Brock Kappelmann - February 19, 2019 7:25 am

Liberal lost the game primarily due to their inability to keep Dodge City off the glass. The Red Demons led the rebounding statistic 43-28. The Redskins shot 49 percent from the field and held the Red Demons to 38 percent. Dodge was 20-29 from the foul line and the Redskins were 18-29. The Demons mad 7-29 three pointers and LHS was 5-13.
Dodge City led 17-13 after one quarter and 40-38 at the half. Liberal claimed a 43-40 lead early in the third quarter. LHS led 47-46 with 4:14 to go in the third. The Demons led 53-51 after three. The Redskins led 59-54 with 4:35 to play. A Hunter Hatcher jumper gave the Skins a 64-63 lead with 1:06 to play. Dodge led 68-64 before a Brody Sumner lay up made it 68-66 Demons with :10.2 second left. Syris Dunlap was fouled with :01.9 seconds left and made one of two free throws.
Liberal has dropped four of the last five and is 10-9 overall and 1-6 in the WAC. Dodge City is 10-9 and 3-4 in the WAC. Liberal hosts the Garden City Buffaloes Tuesday night at about 8 for Senior Night on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
