ASUN Release

Liberty men's basketball senior, Keenan Gumbs, has been named to the 2018-19 ASUN Winter Winners for Life team. The team is comprised of one student-athlete from each of the nine institutions and honors those who display excellence on and off the playing surface.

Gumbs is an Exercise Science and Human Performance major with a 3.79 cumulative GPA and a CoSIDA Academic All-America nominee. He is an active volunteer with many different volunteer organizations in the Lynchburg, Va., area including the FLAMES Read Program, basketball clinics, reading days and the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.

On the hardwood, he averaged 5.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per contest this season, while playing in all 36 games, starting 12. The Flames were the ASUN's representative in the NCAA Tournament and pulled off a first round upset of Mississippi State.
