Another Frenzied Friday for Redskins in Opener

Brock Kappelmann - December 3, 2016 7:43 am

This looked familiar.  A lot like last year actually.  Trailing by as many as 10 in the first half and by eight at the half, the Redskins rallied to defeat the #2 class 4A division 2 Holcomb Longhorns 60-56 Friday night in front of a frenzied Big House crowd.  Liberal won without injured Deladris Green who averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds a game last year.

The Redskin game out red hot making three of their first four 3’s on the way to leads of 17-10 and 22-16 before leading 22-18 at the end of one quarter.  The Redskins led 26-20 before the Longhorns bullied Liberal on the boards on the way to a 18-2 run to lead 38-28.  Holcomb’s tall timber of 6’8″ junior Kobe Dickson and 6’7″ Conner Vancleave established position in the lane with Liberal’s tallest player at 6’5″.   The Horns led 38-30 at the half.  The Redskins rallied in the third trailing 46-44 after three.  A Euro step lay-up by Cade Hinkle gave the Redskins a 50-49 lead with 4:41 to play in the third.  Liberal extended that lead to 52-49 with 2:28 to play and 55-51 with 1:18 to go.  Liberal led 56-51.  The Redskins connected on 13 of 14 free throws.  Hinkle went eight of nine at the foul line and scored 19.  Kaiden Bigham scored 14 and was 4-4  at the line.  Liberal defeats Holcomb for the first time since the 2010-11 season after the Longhorns won five straight in the series.  Holcomb won state in 2014 and 2015.  Liberal plays at Guymon at about 8 Tuesday night on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
