In conjunction with the University's Homecoming Weekend festivities, the Liberty women's basketball program is planning its first-ever team reunion. All former players are invited to attend the on-campus event, scheduled for Oct. 16-18.

The Lady Flames women's basketball program, which was started in 1975-76, has racked up 12 NCAA Tournament appearances and more than 500 victories. Recently, Liberty's run of 10 straight Big South titles between 1997-2006 was voted the No. 1 moment in the conference's 25-year history.

The capstone event of the weekend will be a banquet, scheduled for Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at the New Pate Chapel inside Thomas Road Baptist Church. The banquet, sponsored by the Flames Club, is free of charge to all former Lady Flames players and staff members, as well as their immediate families. The banquet is also open to the public, for a cost of $10 per person. Dress for the banquet is business casual.

In addition, the following activities will be provided, free of charge, to all former Lady Flames (and spouse and children, if applicable) who RSVP with the Lady Flames Basketball office by Oct. 7.

-- Tailgate party
-- Tickets to the Homecoming football game vs. Coastal Carolina
-- Scaremare tickets
-- Specially designed t-shirt
-- Team historical DVD
-- Custom-designed poster
-- Door prizes at the Saturday dinner

Additionally, members of the 10 consecutive Big South Championship teams from 1997 to 2006 will be recognized during the football game.

If interested, former Lady Flames may also check out Liberty's brand-new Snowflex, the Homecoming parade, the Chancellor's Dinner, etc. over the weekend.
