Redskins Get Defensive Stand of the Season

KSCB News - February 24, 2010 12:00 am

In a game the Redskins had to win, they got the stop they had to have. With 41 seconds remaining and Garden City (8-12, 1-7) down one, the Buffs held for the finals shot and got two shots to win the game but missed them both. Liberal played zone during the final possession for the first time all night. Kowan Russell came down with a rebound at the buzzer in Liberal’s 55-54 win over the Buffs Tuesday night at the ‘Big House.’ Jade Cathey scored 21 while Justin Andrade dropped in 11 and Tyson Deaton scored 10. Liberal trailed early by seven (11-4) and trailed 15-10 at the end of the first quarter. LHS trailed 21-16 before a 10-0 run gave them a 30-23 lead. LHS led 30-25 at halftime. The Redskins extended that lead to nine (36-27) before an 8-0 Garden run cut the lead to one. The Buffaloes led 44-43 after three quarters and led by four (52-48) with four minutes to play. Liberal head coach Drew Gruver was unimpressed with his team’s play. “I don’t think we played very hard,” Gruver said after improving to 5-1 against Garden. “It was frustrating. It was like it was a funeral in here at times. We just couldn’t get any intensity. We can’t be too happy with it. We have to look at it and learn from our mistakes and get ready for Dodge City.” Liberal plays at Dodge City Friday night at about 7:45 on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
