BASKETBALL: Hoey leads Liberty Christian to victory

December 17, 2012 

Jared Hoey scored 21 of his 23 points in the second half as the Liberty Christian boys awoke from a scoreless second quarter to down visiting Garfield-Palouse 52-43 in Southeast 1B play Monday.

The game was postponed from Dec. 7, four days after the Patriots won the 8-man football state title.

Seven of LC’s nine players also played football, which perhaps accounted for their cool demeanor after a dreadful second quarter.

“The second half, we just calmed ourselves down, and we got a huge half from Jared,” said Liberty Christian coach William Keck. “He lit it up.”

GARFIELD-PALOUSE — Jesse Lopez 11, Holbrook 10, Pymkoski, Floyd, Wolterang, Thurmon 6, Kuhner 4, Jamison 3, Michell 9.

LIBERTY CHRISTIAN — Jared Hoey 23, Whitworth, Peterson 9, Olson 8, Morris 7, Lindquist 4, Koglin, Conaway 1.

Garfield-Palouse 9 11 12 11 — 43

Liberty Christian 13 0 17 22 — 52
