Today’s Flames Minute: Tuesday
This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Select Bank for this Tuesday, November 15, 2022, I’m Nick Pierce.
Beginning with men’s hoops – the Flames get back in the win column with a victory at home on Monday. Liberty downed North Carolina Central, 79-63 at Liberty Arena. Darius McGhee led the Flames and all scorers with 27 points.
“I think we played great. Like, even on both ends, we made some shots tonight but just the quality of looks we had was much improved from the other night. To see that forward progress means a lot to us, so, I think it was a good outing on both ends of the floor.”
Next, 2-1 Liberty will host 3-0 Southern Miss on Friday night at seven o’clock.
And Liberty football long snapper Austin Mock is a semifinalist for the Patrick Mannelly award. That honor goes to the nation’s top long snapper each year. Mock is set to start his 60th consecutive game on Saturday when Liberty hosts Virginia Tech. Kickoff between the Flames and Hokies is at 12 Noon.
