The Liberty men's basketball team will receive an experienced addition to its lineup for the upcoming season, as former Bradley point guard Anthony Fields has signed a scholarship agreement for the 2015-16 academic year. After receiving his degree from Bradley, Fields will be eligible immediately for the Flames.

"Anthony brings to our program a great deal of experience," Liberty Men's Basketball Head Coach Ritchie McKay stated. "He makes a great first impression and his maturity and leadership ability are valuable addition to our team."

During his time at Bradley, Fields played in 44 games, making his first career start on Jan. 31 against Indiana State, this past season. Fields concluded the contest with a career-high 11 points in 34 minutes. Three days later, the Detroit, Mich., native suffered a season-ending knee injury.

Fields transferred to Bradley from Wake Forest, where he competed in 24 games as a true freshman. During his lone season with the Demon Deacons, he earned All-ACC academic honors.

A graduate of Quality Education Academy in Winston Salem, N.C. Fields helped lead his team to back-to-back NCSAA Division I national championships, capped by a 26-4 record in 2010-11. Prior to signing with Wake Forest, Fields received offers from Boston College, Oklahoma, Seton Hall and Wright State.
