Liberty Athletics reclaims Sasser Cup lead

March 25, 2011 : Liberty University News Service

Following a successful winter session where all four of Liberty University's athletics programs finished first or second in their respective standings, Liberty has gained the lead in the chase for the 2010-11 Big South Sasser Cup.

In February, Liberty swept the Big South indoor track championships in Clemson, S.C., for the second-consecutive season. The men's basketball team set a new program record with 13 Big South wins and finished second in the regular-season standings.

Women's basketball captured its 12th Big South regular-season title in the last 14 seasons and advanced to the Big South Women's Basketball Championship title game for the 14th time in the last 15 seasons. The Lady Flames also advanced to the Postseason WNIT for the first time in program history.
