The Game
The Liberty men's basketball team will try to avoid starting the season 0-8 for the first time in program history when it welcomes Georgia State to the Vines Center. The Flames look to avenge last season's 72-50 loss to the Panthers (Nov. 26, 2011), as they host the CAA member for the first time. Tipoff is slated for 3 p.m., with the contest airing LIVE on the Liberty Channel, MASN2 and ESPN3. A tape delay on Comcast Sports South is also scheduled for 4 p.m.

What to Watch For
- Casey Roberts continues to show he is more than just your average walk-on. The junior transfer led the Flames with 15 points against Morgan State, Thursday. Roberts is currently the team's third-leading scorer with 8.3 ppg.

- Tomasz Gielo made his return to the court on Thursday and didn't disappoint, finishing with 11 points in 18 minutes. The Poland native will now prepare for his second act against the Panthers.

- Davon Marshall has been Mr. Consistency, this season, finishing with 12 points or more in six of Liberty's seven games. However, he will look to bounce back from three-point land, where he has shot 35 percent or lower in the last two contests.

- John Caleb Sanders cracked the Top 50 of Liberty's all-time scoring list with a nine-point performance against the Bears. With 547 points for his career, the junior will look to boost his season average of 7.3 ppg as he continues to climb the ladder.

- With a limited post presence due to injuries to Antwan Burrus and Joel Vander Pol, Liberty's bigs will need to stay out of foul trouble. Sommy Ogukwe has fouled out of two games this season, while JR Coronado played with four fouls against the Bears on Thursday.
