Liberty, ranked 19th in the country for a second straight week, will take a perfect 4-0 mark in the conference into Friday's contest with Georgetown, looking to go 5-0 in the league for the first time in school history. The Lady Flames' matchup with Syracuse will be their fourth against a top-10 opponent in 2018.

Series History Liberty is a perfect 5-0 all-time against Georgetown, including a 2-0 mark in BIG EAST games. The Lady Flames won last year's matchup (Oct. 6, 2017) by a 3-0 score on the Hoyas' home turf in Washington, D.C. In that game, Victoria O'Keeffe, Agueda Moroni and Mallory Fortenbaugh each tallied goals.
The Lady Flames and Syracuse have met one time previously, which came on Sept. 3, 2016 at Hofstra. The Orange, who were the defending national champions and the second-ranked team in the country at the time, were pushed to the limit by Liberty. The Lady Flames led the Orange by a 2-1 count with less than three minutes remaining before Syracuse tied the game and eventually won by a 3-2 score in overtime.
