Tournament bracket

For the second consecutive season, Liberty has earned the No. 3 seed and the opportunity to host a quarterfinal game during the ASUN Women's Basketball Championship. The Lady Flames will host No. 6 seed Kennesaw State Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Vines Center.

Liberty (18-11, 11-5 ASUN) finished in a second-place tie with North Alabama. However, the Lions were awarded the No. 2 seed due to victories in both regular-season matchups with the Lady Flames. Kennesaw State (13-15, 6-10 ASUN) tied Stetson for sixth place in the conference standings. The Owls earned the No. 6 seed by virtue of a higher RPI ranking than the Hatters.

Saturday's other quarterfinal matchups include the following:

No. 8 seed Lipscomb at No. 1 seed FGCU - 7 p.m.
No. 7 seed Stetson at No. 2 seed North Alabama - 2 p.m. Eastern
No. 5 seed North Florida at No. 4 seed Jacksonville - 1 p.m.

Saturday's contest could be the final women's basketball game played at the Vines Center, as the top two remaining seeds from the quarterfinals will host semifinal games on March 11. The highest remaining seed will then play host to the championship game on March 15 at 3 p.m. Eastern.

Liberty is 4-0 all-time against Kennesaw State including a 76-66 home triumph on Feb. 3 and a 76-70 victory at KSU during last night's regular-season finale. The Lady Flames will be attempting to defeat an ASUN team three times in the same season for the first time. Meanwhile, the Owls will look to spring a quarterfinal upset for the second year in a row. In 2019, No. 7 seed KSU took down No. 2 seed Stetson, 67-59.

The Lady Flames, who will take a six-game winning streak into the postseason, will be opening the conference tournament against the same team they faced in the regular-season finale for the first time since 1988. That year, Liberty lost its last regular-season game at Randolph-Macon before defeating the Yellow Jackets in the Mason-Dixon Conference opener.
