This was his chance. James Armstrong has been a loyal manager in the LHS boys basketball program. Tuesday night was the junior’s chance. With multiple sicknesses and injuries, the likeable Redskin manager checked into Tuesday night’s game against Cimarron and was serenaded by the roar of the Rowdy Crowd in the Big House.
Liberal kept Cimarron at arm’s length most of the night. LHS led 14-6 after one and 35-17 before leading 35-20 at the half. Cimarron played better in the second half and Liberal was lethargic at time. The Redskins led 46-33 after three. The Angry Red led 60-37 on the way to their 10th win.
The Redskins shot 38 percent and made 11-22 free throws and 6-26 three pointers. Brody Sumner led Liberal with 16 points. Braxton Hyde added 12. Jordan Mendoza had 11 and Syris Dunlap added 10.
The Redskins are 10-7 and the Bluejays are 5-13. The Skins host Great Bend for homecoming Saturday night at about 8 after the homecoming ceremony. The ceremony and game air on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
