The Starting 5 - Liberty's Top Storylines
• Making its fourth visit to Florida, Liberty (12-11, 5-5 ASUN) will attempt to complete a season sweep of Jacksonville (14-9, 6-4 ASUN).

• If the ASUN Championship began today, No. 5 seed Liberty's quarterfinal contest would take place at No. 4 seed Jacksonville, making this a potential tournament preview.

• Liberty has won three straight meetings with Jacksonville, including an 85-75 OT victory during its only previous visit to Swisher Gymnasium.

• Keyen Green, the 2018 Big South Player of the Year, is making a successful return from an ankle injury which sidelined her for the entire 2018-19 season. The redshirt junior center has posted back-to-back 20-point outings. She set season highs for points (29) and rebounds (16) versus JU on Jan. 11 and scored her 1,000th career point that afternoon.

• Redshirt junior forward Emily Lytle scored a career-high 26 points during her last visit to Swisher Gymnasium. She has scored in double figures in three straight contests and is two triples away from becoming the 12th Lady Flame with 100 for her career.

Notes and Anecdotes - Liberty vs. Jacksonville
• Liberty will look to complete a season sweep of Jacksonville and pull into a tie with the Dolphins in the ASUN standings.

• The Lady Flames have won three straight meetings with Jacksonville since the Dolphins spoiled Liberty's first-ever ASUN home game on Jan. 12, 2019.

• The two teams have been trending in opposite directions in recent weeks. While Liberty has lost three of its last four games, Jacksonville is 4-1 in its last five outings.

• The most points Liberty has ever scored in an ASUN game is 85, with both occurrences coming against Jacksonville. Emily Lytle (26 points) and Ashtyn Baker (21) have both recorded career-high scoring efforts versus the Dolphins, while Keyen Green's season high of 29 points was achieved against JU. Meanwhile, Bridgette Rettstatt has scored in double figures during all four career meetings with Jacksonville.

• Host Liberty defeated Jacksonville in the ASUN Championship quarterfinals last season. If this year's tournament began today, No. 5 seed Liberty would travel to No. 4 seed Jacksonville for a quarterfinal clash. The Dolphins have been a top-four seed in five of the last six ASUN tournaments.

• Carey Green's first year as Liberty's head coach (1999-2000) was Jacksonville's first women's basketball season.

Sunshine State
• This road trip marks the Lady Flames' fourth and final regular-season visit to Florida, including their second trip to Jacksonville. Liberty previously played in the Miami Thanksgiving Classic (Nov. 29-30), at FGCU (Jan. 6) and at North Florida (Jan. 27).

• Liberty is 7-18 all-time when playing in Florida, including 2-3 this season. The Lady Flames defeated Miami (Ohio) at Miami (Fla.) on Nov. 29 and won at Stetson on Jan. 25. Meanwhile, two of their three Sunshine State setbacks this season have come at the hands of Top 25 opponents, including No. 7/5 Oregon State (Nov. 30) at Miami and No. 25 FGCU (Jan. 6). The Lady Flames also dropped a contest at North Florida two weeks ago (Jan. 27).
