    Liberty’s Top Storylines
    • Liberty (11-7, 5-2 ASUN) will tip off a two-game swing through the Volunteer State with its first-ever matchup against ASUN newcomer and co-leader Austin Peay (11-6, 6-1 ASUN), Thursday evening.

    • The Lady Flames have won three in a row, punctuated by an 88-78 overtime victory on Saturday versus FGCU, their first-ever win over the Eagles. They will take on an Austin Peay squad which owns the ASUN’s longest active winning streak (5) and has yet to lose an ASUN home game.

    • Four of Liberty’s 11 wins this season (Salem, Washington, SIUE and FGCU) have marked the Lady Flames’ first-ever victory against that opponent.

    • Mya Berkman leads the Lady Flames in points (14.5 ppg) and rebounds (7.4 rpg) while ranking No. 1 nationally for field goal percentage (72.4). She has scored in double figures in a career-best nine straight contests.

    • Kennedi Williams (career-high 24 points, six assists) is coming off the best game of her career. She tallied 20 points after halftime and single-handedly outscored FGCU in overtime, 8-5. She has dished out 5+ assists in eight of the last nine contests.

    Notes and Anecdotes – Liberty vs. Austin Peay
    • Liberty’s first-ever meeting with ASUN newcomer Austin Peay will pit the Lady Flames against a conference-leading team for the second game in a row.

    • The Governors own the conference’s longest active winning streak (5 games) and are tied for first in the ASUN standings with FGCU and Lipscomb.

    • Liberty will try to become the first ASUN team to defeat Austin Peay at the Winfield Dunn Center. The Governors are 3-0 in home ASUN contests during the facility’s final season. Austin Peay will move to the F&M Bank Arena in 2023-24.

    • Brittany Young, in her second season as the Governors’ head coach, is 0-1 versus Liberty as an assistant. The Lady Flames tipped off the 2017-18 season with a 63-55 Preseason WNIT victory at Old Dominion in Young’s first game on staff with the Monarchs.

    • Liberty’s Jordan Bailey spent the first semester of the 2019-20 season playing for Old Dominion. Two of her teammates on that squad (Mariah Adams and Ajah Wayne) are now part of Austin Peay’s roster.
