Freedom beats crosstown rival Liberty

No matter what the sport, when it's Freedom versus Liberty, you can always expect a battle, especially on the basketball court. The Liberty boys entered tonight's contest with a perfect 3-0 record to start the season, just 1-0 in the LVC. Freedom was 2-1, but 2-0 in the league. Freedom Head Coach Joe Stellato didn't have his white suit on tonight...but he wouldn't need his John Travolta threads for good luck tonight.

Pick it up in the 3rd, Freedom's Nigle Long drives, spins, scores, and draws the foul for the three point play...Long led the Patriots with 19 points

Later in the 3rd, back comes Liberty, they go inside to DeShawn Oyeniyi, he scores and gets the foul, he finished with a team high 19 points...Canes within two

In the 4th, Freedom gets it done, they go to Ludwin Gonzalez, he knocks down the three, he finished with 12 points

Freedom wins, 59-53
