Today’s Flames Minute: Thursday
This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Select Bank for this Thursday, October 6, 2022, I’m Nick Pierce.
Once again, the Flames are picked as the favorites to win the ASUN Men’s Basketball Championship. Liberty is number one in both the preseason media and coach’s polls. Also, senior guard Darius McGhee is once again the Preseason ASUN Player of the Year. He joins teammate Kyle Rode on the preseason ASUN All-Conference team.
On to cross country – Liberty’s Ava Gordon and Jacob Hess sweep this week’s ASUN freshman awards. Gordon is the Women’s Freshman of the Week after shattering the school freshman five-k record at Notre Dame, last week. Hess is the Men’s Freshman of the Week and finished seventh among all freshman men’s five-mile blue race at Notre Dame.
And we’re just two days away from Flames football. Liberty travels to UMass on Saturday for a 3:30 match-up. At 4-1, the Flames are two wins away from becoming bowl eligible for a fourth straight year.
