Twice as Nice for Lady Redskins in Colby
01/17/2013

After maybe their most miserable start of the season, the Liberal Lady Redskins pulled off one of their most unlikely comebacks in recent memory winning a 59-58 double overtime heart stopper over Scott City.  Liberal wins their opening round game of the Colby Orange and Black Classic for the first time since 2010 and plays Friday at 3 p.m. against Hugoton or Palmer Ridge.

Liberal dug a 19-2 hole against at Lady Beaver team who is now 1-7.  LHS trailed 29-15 at the half.  But the Lady Redskins used a full court press in the second half to pull back into striking distance.  The Lady Skins trailed 35-29 after three.  Jai Chapman's buzzer beating bank shot from the left of the lane tied the game at the end of regulation.  Liberal led 50-47 in OT after a Megan Besecker three pointer.  But after LHS went 0-3 at the foul line, Scott City's Shanaya Hoeme sunk two charities to send the game to double OT.  LHS trailed twice by six in double OT including 58-52.  But a Besecker three from the right corner pulled Liberal to within one.  After Scott missed two free throws, Chapman got the rebound and raced to the other end for a shot on the high lane which resulted in a two shot foul.  After missing the previous four foul shots, Chapman sunk both free throws to give LHS the lead with 2.2 seconds remaining. 

Liberal is 4-6.  Chapman scored a career high 29 and Besecker added 17.
