Liberal didn't play their best game of the year. Stamp that distinction on the McCook game in Colby. But this was probably their most impressive win of the year. Liberal finished the game on a 14-1 run and rallied from nine down (41-32) in the third quarter to stun Great Bend 57-47. Jade Cathey led a balanced attack with 15 points and six assists and several blocked shots which seemed to turn the momentum of the game. Tyson Deaton added 14 points. Bryan Morris added 13 in a game Liberal trailed 41-38 after three quarters. Slader McVay nailed a three pointer to tie the game at 41. His pull up jumper with 1:48 to play gave Liberal a 47-46 lead they would not relinquish. Morris was 4-4 down the stretch at the free throw line. A hard fought win on the road leaves Libeal 8-6 overall and 2-1 in the WAC. The Panthers are 7-7 overall and 2-2 in the WAC. Great Bend plays at Manhattan today while Liberal travels to Dodge City for a tip off at about 4:45 on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
