The Horns jumped out to a 21-12 lead as Holcomb made six of their first nine three pointers.  The Redskins used a 10-0 run to lead 22-21.  Holcomb led 29-26 at halftime.  The Redskins took a 44-40 lead after three and led by as many as 12 in the fourth quarter at 59-47 and 61-49.

Lee Hatcher scored 18 while Jordan Mendoza had 15 and Hunter Hatcher dropped in 10.  Israel Avalos scored eight.  Liberal made 54 percent of their shots and 15-21 from the foul line.  They were 7-20 from three point range.
