Liberty men's basketball has released its non-conference schedule, completing its schedule for the 2019-20 season.
All throughout the season the Flames will be tested as they will face five teams that posted at 20 or more wins from last season. With two other teams from the ASUN Conference playing in the postseason last year (Lipscomb and NJIT) the Flames will face four teams that appeared in the postseason last season as LSU made it to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament while Grand Canyon played West Virginia in the College Basketball Invitational (CBI).
An old rivalry will be renewed as Liberty welcomes Radford to Lynchburg as this will be the first Big South team Liberty will face since joining the ASUN Conference in 2018. The two schools last met in the 2018 Big South Championship, as the Highlanders won a buzzer-beater.
For the second straight season, Liberty will compete in two tournaments during its non-conference schedule as the Flames will compete in the Bahamas Showcase and then in the D.C. Shootout, which will be held at the Washington Wizard's G-League arena, the St Elizabeth's East Entertainment and Sports Arena.
In addition to the two tournaments the Flames will also play in the Jerry Colangelo Classic against Grand Canyon at the Talking Stick Resort Arena, home of the Phoenix Suns. The Classic will be in its third season as teams like Arizona, Gonzaga, Nevada, St. John's, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
