LHS Defense Steps Up in Win Over Buhler

Brock Kappelmann - January 22, 2017 10:16 am

For the first time since Scott Hinkle’s first season back as head coach in 2014, Liberal wins two games at their mid season tournament.  That’s after Liberal 47-45 win over #9 4A Buhler Saturday afternoon in the Salina Bicentennial Center.

Liberal’s defense led to transition opportunities throughout the game.  The Redskins bolted to an 11-4 lead after one and 25-16 at the half.  The Skins led 37-32 after three quarters.  The Redskins made 5-10 three pointers in the win.  Markalyn Eatmon broke a mini slump with 11 points and three three pointers.  Cade Hinkle added 10 and Kylan Thomas dropped in eight.  Thomas was named to the all tournament team.

Liberal is 10-2 and Buhler is 9-4.  Buhler defeated LHS at the same tournament last year.  The Redskins play at Hugoton Friday night at about 8 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
