Men's Basketball New Year's Eve Game Moved to Randolph College
Liberty Director of Athletics Jeff Barber has announced that due to a scheduling conflict, Liberty's home men's basketball contest versus Charleston Southern on Dec. 31 has been moved to another venue in the Hill City.
The meeting between the Flames and the Buccaneers will take place at the Randolph Athletic Center on the campus of nearby Randolph College. Game time for the New Year's Eve clash is set for 2 p.m.
"We are very fortunate to have a great friend and neighbor like Randolph College allow us to use their facility for this game," Barber stated. "We appreciate very much their willingness to step up and help us. We couldn't be more pleased with their willingness to make this a positive experience for the teams and fans."
With seating capacity for "The Den" listed at approximately 400, tickets for the contest will be sold separately from the regular-season ticket package. A limited number of tickets will be available with Flames Club members receiving first priority based on membership and loyalty points. Further ticket information for the event will be released at a later date.
The Flames approach the 2011-12 season looking to build upon a solid 2010-11 campaign. Head coach Dale Layer enters his third season with the program, after becoming the first Liberty skipper to earn Big South Coach of the Year honors. Liberty closed out the year with a 19-13 record overall and a 13-5 mark in Big South Conference play, setting a new record for most conference wins in school history.
