On Thursday evening at the Campus East Clubhouse, the Liberty women's basketball team celebrated its third consecutive appearance in the WBCA NCAA Division I Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll.

In addition to capturing its 11th Big South Conference title in the past 12 seasons, the 2007-08 Lady Flames posted a 3.354 team GPA, which ranked 14th nationally. Head coach Carey Green's squad was one of three teams in the nation (also Kansas State and New Mexico) to both appear in the NCAA Tournament and accumulate at least a 3.3 team grade-point average last season.
