Strong Second Half Boosts Lady Skins at Cimarron

KSCB News - February 17, 2016 7:07 am

They were too robotic. After one half of basketball, Liberal was running their zone offense but they weren’t aggressive enough. At halftime, LHS head coach Carter Kruger told his team to be more aggressive and to improvise more within their offense. The advice worked as LHS gained a road win over last year’s 3A state runner up Cimarron 42-29. Liberal wins a 10th game for the first time since 2010.

The Lady Bluejays led 14-13 at halftime. The Lady Redskins took a 28-18 lead after the third quarter. The Lady Skins led by as many as 16 in the win. They were a balanced scoring attack led by Jada Mickens with nine while Whitney Hay, Ali Lucero, and Diamond Bailey scored eight a piece and Carolina Limon added seven. Liberal made 10 of 12 free throws.

Liberal is 10-7 and Cimarron is 11-6. LHS plays at Great Bend Saturday night at 6 with Redskin Pre-game at 5:45 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
