Liberal committed 22 turnovers in the loss.  Many of those turnovers led to opportunities for North.  Liberal was just 1-7 from three point range and North was 3-13.  Liberal was 17-27 at the foul line and North was 13-18.

Zayden Martinez had 14 points and 12 rebounds.  Izzy Rotolo had 13 points.  Cristian Loza had eight points and five rebounds.
