It's not easy on the road in the WAC. The LHS boys and girls will try to win WAC openers away from home tonight. Liberal head girls basketball coach Shane Stout says 1-5 Hays has many built-in advantages heading into their game against 5-1 ninth ranked Liberal. "They've got every advantage going into this game," the fourth year LHS head coach said. "It's on their home floor. They played a game on Tuesday (a 44-29 loss at Salina Central) and we haven't had a game in several weeks so they shook off that rust after the break. Everything is leaning in Hays' favor and we really need to show up and be ready when the ball is tipped." The Liberal boys are 5-1 and ranked seventh playing a Hays team who is also 5-1 and ranked third after their first loss of the season 42-32 at Salina Central on Tuesday. Hays has size on their side with two 6'6" players and a 6'7" player up front. LHS third year head coach Drew Gruver says that makes the Indians a tall order. "They like to set pick and rolls with their big guys," Gruver said. "They try to create mis-matches with their pick and rolls." The Redskins have actually enjoyed some recent success in Hays, America. The Skins have won three of the past five games at Hays but lost last year 64-55. The games will air Friday night on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnew.net.
