Liberty boys basketball snag league title

The team celebrated their 64-35 win over Sammamish Tuesday.

For the first time in Liberty’s 40 year school history, the Patriots boys basketball team clinched the KingCo 2A/3A title.

The boys beat Sammamish Tuesday 64-35.

The only regular season loss for the Patriots came mid-January against Bellevue. Since then, the boys have gone on a five game win streak.

One game remains in the regular season when Liberty hosts Cedarcrest at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2.

The postseason begins a week later when No. 1 seed Liberty enters the district tournament for a 7 p.m. tip off Saturday, Feb. 10.

The tournament will be played at Mount Vernon High School. Liberty’s opponent was not known at the time of press.
