The Starting 5 - Liberty's Top Storylines
• Liberty (17-11, 10-5 ASUN) will close out the regular season with a Monday visit to Kennesaw State (13-14, 6-9 ASUN).

• The Lady Flames and Owls could meet again on Saturday at the Vines Center in the ASUN Championship quarterfinals. Liberty will end up as the No. 2, 3 or 4 seed, while KSU will either finish No. 6 or 7.

• Liberty has won five straight games and is 3-0 all-time versus Kennesaw State. The Lady Flames' first-ever ASUN victory came during their last visit to Kennesaw, Jan. 15, 2019.

• 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. She scored a game-high 21 points during a 76-66 win over Kennesaw State on Feb. 3, 17 of which came prior to halftime.

• Junior point guard Ashtyn Baker is the reigning ASUN Player of the Week. She is averaging 19.8 ppg and 4.8 apg during the last four games, headlined by a career-high 26-point outing against North Florida on Feb. 24.

Notes and Anecdotes - Liberty vs. Kennesaw State
• Liberty will wrap up its second season of ASUN Conference play at the KSU Convocation Center, site of the team's first-ever ASUN victory. The Lady Flames posted a 67-61 win at KSU on Jan. 15, 2019, with Tatyana Crowder's steal and layup with 43.3 seconds remaining putting Liberty ahead for good.

• Monday's game could provide a preview for the ASUN quarterfinals. Liberty can still end up as either the No. 2, No. 3 or No. 4 seed, while Kennesaw State will finish either No. 6 or No. 7. Liberty has not faced the same team in its regular-season finale and conference tournament opener since 1987-88. That year, Liberty lost its final regular-season tilt to Randolph-Macon before taking down the Yellow Jackets in the opening round of the Mason-Dixon Conference Tournament.

• Liberty's Kierra Johnson-Graham (Tucker High School) and Kennedi Williams (Greater Atlanta Christian School) both attended high school approximately 30 miles away from the KSU Convocation Center.

• Liberty's Carey Green and Kennesaw State's Agnus Berenato have combined for 956 career victories in 54 combined seasons as collegiate head coaches. Green is 3-1 coaching against Berenato. Berenato's victory over Green was a 54-47 Pitt triumph over Liberty on Dec. 20, 2006 in Cancun, Mexico.

What's at Stake?
• With a win on Monday, Liberty will finish as either the No. 2 seed (if North Alabama loses to NJIT) or the No. 3 seed (if North Alabama beats NJIT) for the ASUN Championship.

• A victory over Kennesaw State would give the Lady Flames an 11-5 conference record, bettering their 10-6 ASUN ledger during their inaugural season of conference play in 2018-19.

• With a victory, Liberty would extend its winning streak to six, matching its longest of the season (Dec. 3-Jan. 4). It would mark the Lady Flames' longest winning streak to close out a regular season since Liberty won its final 11 regular-season contests in 2014-15.
