For the second straight week, Liberty has claimed the ASUN Player of the Week honor, as Scottie James earned the honor this week. The award comes after James was named the MVP of the DC Holiday Hoops Fest Tournament.

James was a workhorse in Washington, D.C. against Towson and Akron averaging 13.5 points, six rebounds and two assists. James was efficient from the field shooting 60 percent from the floor for the tournament and in the championship game against Akron, James delivered with 15 points, six rebounds and shot 75 percent from the field. This is the second ASUN Player of the Week award James has received this season as he earned the honor on Nov. 25, after being named to the Bahamas Showcase All-Tournament Team.

Liberty will return to action after the Christmas break when they travel to LSU to close out its non-conference schedule. Tip-off is set for 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 29, at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and can be seen on the SEC Network.
