Today's Flames Minute: Friday

This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Church Mutual Insurance, for this Friday, March 20, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.

On this day 15 years ago, Lady Flames basketball made history. On March 20, 2005, 13-seed Liberty entered the NCAA Tournament with an 0-8 all-time record in the Big Dance. The Flames met four-seed Penn State in College Park, Md., in the opening round.

"Watkins drives in, kicks out to Fasnacht, three-pointer by Fasnacht – boom!! Allyson Fasnacht, a fist-pump in the air, and the Flames lead, 43-35 - Fasnacht to Feenstra, Feenstra in the paint, a lot of contact - shot falls as well! Katie Feenstra will go to the line."

Jamie Hall on the Liberty Flames Sports Network with the highlights, that night. Liberty knocked off Penn State, 78-70, advancing to the round of 32. All-American Katie Feenstra had a game-high 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Flames, who went on to beat DePaul and advance to the Sweet 16.
