For the first time since winning the ASUN Championship game at Lipscomb, the Liberty men's basketball team met with the media leading into the NCAA Selection Show on Sunday, March 17.

The Flames have a little over a week to prepare for the NCAA Tournament as they await their fate of who they will play in the first round of the tournament, which begins March 21. The Flames will be in the Big Dance for just the fourth time in school history and first since 2013. One of the best seasons in school history, Liberty set a school record with 28 wins at the Division I level and set a school record with 14 non-conference wins. Liberty's win in the ASUN Championship at Lipscomb gave the Flames 11 road wins for the first time in school history, which was part of the program's third straight 20-win season (28-6).   

The team is gearing up for the NCAA Selection on Sunday, March 17, as the Flames Club will be hosting the watch party and that is free to the public.  Doors will open at 5 p.m. with the Selection Show to begin at 6 p.m. on CBS. Fans will get the opportunity to meet the team and see who the Flames' first-round opponent will be in the Big Dance. The men's basketball team will be there with Sparky and the cheerleaders. Light refreshments will be served.


Liberty will receive a limited number of tickets to the Flames First Round game. Priority will be given to Flames Club members before any tickets would be made available to the public.

If you do not qualify to purchase tickets through the Flames Club, you can still try to secure tickets via the NCAA and Ticketmaster or through third-party ticket websites.
