The Liberal Redskins picked a lousy time for a bad shooting night. The Skins shot 28 percent from the field and 21 percent in the second half of a 44-35 loss to the Gruver Greyhounds in the Big House Tuesday night.
The Redskins and Hounds played to a 7-7 tie after one quarter before the Redskins would lead 19-13 late in the second half but a Gruver alley oop dunk to Oklahoma football signee Jalin Conyers which gave the Greyhounds momentum at the half trailing LHS 19-15. Gruver and Liberal were tied at 26-26 after three quarters. The Hounds out paced the Skins 18-9 in the fourth quarter.
Gruver shot 40 percent from the field. Officials called many more fouls against Liberal as Gruver went 10-22 at the foul line and Liberal was 6-9. Hunter Hatcher had 17 points and 11 rebounds in the loss. Jalin Conyers had 15, Carter Armes had 13, and Bo Butler had 11 in the win.
