In a sloppy game which included a lot of turnovers and missed free throws, the Liberal Redskins struggled their way to a 38-36 win over Palmer Ridge, Colorado Thursday night at Colby High School. It's Liberal's seventh first round win in the last eight years at Colby. Liberal's biggest lead against the shorter and less athletic team from the Colorado Springs area was five. LeVondre Livingston led the Redskins with 14 points and six of seven shooting. Jade Cathey added 10 points and seven rebounds. Bryan Morris had eight rebounds and four steals. Those were positives, now to the downright ugly from Thursday night. Liberal was 12-24 at the free throw line and 9-20 in the second half. The Redskins committed 22 turnovers in the win. Liberal is 6-4 overall while the Bears fall to 7-4. Liberal plays Sunrise Christian at 8:15 Friday night at the Colby Community Building on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net. Hays beat Hugoton 46-29 and McCook topped Holcomb 73-71.
