Liberty men's basketball head coach Dale Layer has 16 players on his roster, but one in particular holds a special place in his heart. The following video looks at the relationship between Layer and his son Ethan Layer, and includes interviews with the coach and freshman guard.

Ethan has appeared in 28 games this season and is tied for second on the team in three-point field goals made with 14. The shooting guard had a season-high 11 points in Liberty's Big South opener at Campbell, going 3-of-6 from three-point range and 2-of-3 at the foul line in 11 minutes.

The Flames host Coastal Carolina on Thursday. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m., with the contest airing live on the Liberty Channel and MASN.
