The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show spotlighting Liberty's men's and women's basketball programs, returns to the airwaves this evening at 7 p.m. The show is hosted weekly at the Liberty University Bookstore.

This week's show will feature sophomore center Evan Maxwell and assistant to the head coach Matt Olinger from the men's basketball team and a pre-taped interview with Head Coach Carey Green of the Lady Flames.

For the third year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on the ESPNinVA network, which includes the following ESPN Radio stations in the Central Virginia area: 93.3 FM (Lynchburg), 106.3 FM (Danville), 1240 AM (Roanoke), 1320 AM (Lynchburg) and 1350 AM (Bedford).

Fans unable to listen to the show via a traditional radio station can also listen via the link provided above or by downloading the My Journey FM mobile app. The app is available in both the Google Play and iTunes mobile app stores.

The Liberty University Bookstore is located across the street from Williams Stadium in the Speakman parking lot. The show broadcasts live throughout the Barnes and Noble bookstore and fans are encouraged to participate during the call-in segments.

Alan York, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for football and men's basketball, hosts the call-in show.

The Liberty men's basketball team lost a pair of road games last week, falling 64-63 at Charleston Southern and 74-58 at Winthrop. The Flames are now 5-15 overall and 2-5 in Big South play.

Liberty will return to the Vines Center for a pair of contests this week, hosting Longwood Tuesday at 7 p.m. and High Point Saturday at noon.

Maxwell is the Flames' second-leading scorer (11.6 ppg) and leading rebounder (5.8 rpg) this season. Olinger is in his 11th year with the men's basketball program and his first as assistant to the head coach.

The Lady Flames are coming off of a 77-61 home win over Winthrop on Saturday. The victory boosted Liberty's overall record to 8-8. The Lady Flames are part of a four-way tie for second place in the Big South standings at 5-2.

Liberty will travel to Coastal Carolina Tuesday at 7 p.m. and play at Longwood Saturday at 2 p.m.

Green, in his 17th season as Liberty's head coach, is just nine wins shy of 400 for his career.

Following the opening segment with each guest, York will open up the phone lines and field questions from the radio listening audience or those seated inside the Liberty University Bookstore. Fans unable to be on location for the show each Monday night may call in at (877) 401-9041 to participate in the weekly show.

Those not able to participate in the call-in portion of the show can also email their questions for Maxwell or Olinger to LFSN@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flames Nation fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to any of the ESPNinVA network of stations in the Central Virginia area. The show also airs live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
