Liberty Women's Hoops Announces Schedule Changes

Updated 2015-16 Liberty Women's Basketball Schedule

The Liberty women's basketball team's schedule for the upcoming 2015-16 season has changed significantly since it was first announced in August. The alterations involve the Lady Flames' home matchup with NC State, their last 16 Big South Conference games and the 2016 Big South Women's Basketball Championship.

Due to the nationally televised football game between Liberty and Coastal Carolina at Williams Stadium on Nov. 19, the Lady Flames will now play host to NC State the following night. Tipoff between the Lady Flames and Wolfpack is set for 7 p.m. on Nov. 20 at the Vines Center.

The 2016 Big South Women's Basketball Championship will be played March 10-13, one week later than originally planned, at a location to be announced in November.

In conjunction with the tournament changes, the Big South women's basketball regular season will now wrap up on March 5 instead of Feb. 27. Beginning with Liberty's Jan. 9 contest at Presbyterian, the Lady Flames' final 16 conference games have each been shifted between two and seven days from the initial schedule. Liberty will host Presbyterian for both teams' regular-season finale on March 5.

Game times for the Lady Flames' final 16 Big South contests will be set at a later date.

Liberty's 2015-16 season opener will still be played Nov. 13 at Appalachian State, tipping off at 11:30 a.m. The Lady Flames' first home game of the season is still set for Nov. 16 versus Elon at 7 p.m. inside the Vines Center.
