Liberty started the game on a 16-2 run, shooting 60 percent (6-10) on its first 10 shots of the game. While the offense started clicking, Liberty's defense was exceptional, holding Trinity Baptist College to just 20 percent (2-10) on its first 10 shots of the game. Liberty's defense frustrated Trinity Baptist College all night long, holding the Eagles to just 22.2 percent (12-54) shooting throughout the game. Liberty had a balanced scoring attack as all 14 Liberty players scored against Trinity Baptist.
Key Stats & Notes
Thoughts from Head Coach Ritchie McKay
"Great to see our students out tonight. It was great to see Caleb (Homesley) out there tonight, moving freely, which hasn't happened in a while. I wanted to give him a few minutes to shake off the rust. He had an impact on the game and did a really good job."
Liberty will close out the week on the road when they travel to Phoenix, Ariz. to compete in the Jerry Colangelo Classic against Grand Canyon. Tipoff is set for 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday and can be seen on ESPNU.
