Redskins Press for Success
Brock Kappelmann - December 18, 2019 7:21 am
One game after playing a slowed down deliberate style with a zone on defense at Olathe West, the Liberal Redskins switched things up Tuesday night. Liberal employed a full court press and aggressive defense forcing the visiting Guymon Tigers into 18 turnovers in Liberal’s 44-32 win in the Big House. Liberal only shot 23 percent from the field but made 18-23 free throws.
It was a slow offensive start for the Redskins and the Tigers as Liberal led 7-4 after one quarter and 15-11 at halftime. Liberal led 17-12 and 20-14 in the third quarter before the Tigers rallied to lead 21-20. Alex Lopez buried a timely three pointer for a 23-21 Redskin lead. LHS would never trail again. The Angry Red led 26-25 after three and led 41-26 in the fourth.
Liberal was 6-25 from three point range but Lopez made three of them and scored 13. Hunter Hatcher and Syris Dunlap had nine a piece and Fabian Lopez had eight. For Guymon, Brett Fields and David Enriquez had eight a piece.
The Redskins are 2-2 and win their 11th straight against Guymon. Guymon is 2-5. Liberal plays at Dodge City Thursday night at 7:45 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
