Key Stats & Notes
Thoughts from Head Coach Ritchie McKay
"I was a little disappointed in how much we turned the ball over in the first half and when you turn it over, it leads to easy baskets for the other team but I think our guys did a good job of reeling it in. We showed a little bit of maturity to anchor down defensively and do a better job in the second half."
Liberty will close out its two-game homestand on Monday, Dec. 2, to face Trinity Baptist. Tip-off is set for 10 p.m. at the Vines Center.
