Today's Flames Minute: Wednesday
This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Soundz Hearing in Lynchburg, for this Wednesday, October 28, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.
We're about a month away from the start of Flames basketball. The men are coming off a second straight ASUN Championship but this year's team continues to take shape in practice as head coach Ritchie McKay must replace four seniors.
"Who's going to take Scottie James' eight rebounds a game or Myo Baxter-Bell's shot in the arm off the bench or Caleb Homesley manufacturing a basket. Those questions remain unanswered to me. But I do think that we have the character and the ability for guys to play enhanced roles than they have previously in their careers."
The Lady Flames, who claimed a share of the ASUN title last year, have also started practice. Non-conference schedules will be released soon.
On Tuesday, the ASUN did announce revamped men's and women's conference schedules. Teams will play each conference opponent twice but now both meetings will take place during a single weekend at the same location.
