2016-17 Liberty Women's Basketball Schedule

The 2016-17 Liberty women's basketball schedule was completed on Wednesday with the announcement of the Big South Conference slate. The Lady Flames will play 18 Big South games this season, beginning Jan. 3 at Charleston Southern and wrapping up with a March 4 home matchup with Campbell.

Big South Breakdown
Liberty's 18 Big South contests will include a home and road meeting with each of the other nine conference members.

All conference games will be played on Tuesdays and Saturdays with the exception of the final week of the regular season, when the weekday matchups will be shifted to Monday, Feb. 27. In addition, two to-be-determined Saturday conference games will move to Sunday to accommodate broadcasts on the American Sports Network (ASN). 

With the Big South women's basketball schedule starting in January for the first time since 2010-11, the Lady Flames' first of nine Big South home games will be a Jan. 7 meeting with High Point.

Liberty will close the regular season with back-to-back home contests, against defending Big South champion UNC Asheville (Feb. 27) and Campbell (March 4).

The Lady Flames will also travel to Asheville's Kimmel Arena for a rematch of the 2016 Big South Women's Basketball Championship title game on Jan. 21.

Tournament Tidbits
As previously announced, Liberty will play host to the entire 2017 Big South Women's Basketball Championship at the Vines Center, March 9-12.

The tournament will begin with a pair of first-round games on March 9, to be aired on the Big South Network.

ESPN3 will televise the remainder of the tournament, including the March 10 quarterfinals, March 11 semifinals and March 12 championship game.

Non-Conference Nuggets
The Lady Flames' non-conference matchup with Appalachian State which was originally set for Nov. 18 has been moved up to Nov. 17. That game will tip off at 7 p.m. inside the Vines Center.

Additionally, game times have been set for all three of Liberty's non-conference men's and women's basketball doubleheaders at the Vines Center. The Lady Flames will play the opening contest each time, tipping at 6 p.m. against Duke (Nov. 11), 5 p.m. against James Madison (Nov. 15) and 11 a.m. versus West Liberty (Dec. 10).

Still to Come
Game times for Liberty's conference tilts and the 2017 Big South Women's Basketball Championship will be announced at a later time. The Lady Flames' 2016-17 television schedule will also be set closer to the start of the season.
