If Liberal sees a team as strong as Bartlesville this year, it will probably be in Topeka in the 5A state tournament. Class 6A Bartlesville was 19-3 last year and returned their entire team. They flexed their muscles Saturday in the Big House in the Conestoga/Community Bank Classic in a 62-41 win over LHS.
The Redskins (1-2) showed promise for their future in the second half. The 5-0 Bruins led 27-11 at halftime but only outscored the Skins 35-30 in the second half.
DeVondre Livingston led Liberal with 14 and Andre Jackson scored 10 while William Ross dished many assists to both of them.
The Redskins play at Gruver Tuesday night on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
