    The Starting 5 – Liberty’s Top Storylines
    • ASUN East co-leader Liberty (24-2, 12-1 ASUN) will host Stetson (16-10, 9-4 ASUN) on Senior Day in a battle between the ASUN’s two hottest teams.

    • The Lady Flames enter the contest riding a nine-game winning streak. They have won 10 consecutive home games and are 14-0 all-time at Liberty Arena versus ASUN foes.

    • Liberty, which is receiving votes in both Top 25 polls, would become the nation’s first team to reach 25 wins if it is victorious on Saturday. A Lady Flames triumph would also clinch a first-round bye for the ASUN Championship.

    • Liberty will recognize six seniors prior to tipoff, including Dee Brown, Alyssa Iverson, Nenna Lindstrom, Jordan Peters, Bridgette Rettstatt and Priscilla Smeenge.

    • Mya Berkman leads the Lady Flames in points (12.9 ppg) and rebounds (7.2 rpg) while ranking No. 2 nationally for field goal percentage (67.5). Berkman, who has scored in double figures in each of the last three games, went for 21 points on 9-of-10 from the field at Stetson on Jan. 5.

    Notes and Anecdotes – Liberty vs. Stetson
    • Saturday’s matinee features the two hottest teams in the ASUN, as Liberty has won nine straight games and Stetson has won eight in a row.

    • The nation’s only other game on Saturday matching up two teams with 8+ game winning streaks is IUPUI (W14) at Green Bay (W9).

    • If Liberty wins on Saturday, it would mark the Lady Flames’ program-record 13th ASUN victory this season and would clinch a first-round bye for the ASUN Championship.

    • If Liberty is victorious, the Lady Flames would become the nation’s first NCAA Division I women’s basketball team to reach 25 wins this season. It would be Liberty’s first 25-win season since 2014-15 and would be the fastest they have gotten to 25 victories (27 games) since 1997-98, when the Lady Flames opened 25-0.

    • Liberty (No. 3 nationally, 50.7 ppg) and Stetson (No. 27 nationally, 55.5 ppg) are the ASUN’s top two defensive teams.

    • Only one team has reached the 70-point mark during Liberty and Stetson’s first seven meetings as ASUN Conference foes.

    • Liberty’s Carey Green (500th win) and Stetson’s Lynn Bria (400th win) have both achieved milestones this season.

    At Home Against the ASUN
    • Liberty has won its first six ASUN home games of the season, improving to 14-0 all-time in conference matchups at Liberty Arena.

    • The Lady Flames have won 18 straight ASUN Conference home games overall and have been victorious in their last 19 meetings with ASUN opponents in Lynchburg (including one in the 2020 ASUN Championship).

    • Since joining the conference prior to the 2018-19 season, Liberty is 28-5 at home against ASUN Conference foes. The Lady Flames are 51-18 overall when facing ASUN opponents during that time.

    Salute to Seniors
    • Liberty will honor six seniors prior to tipoff on Saturday, including Dee Brown, Alyssa Iverson, Nenna Lindstrom, Jordan Peters, Bridgette Rettstatt and Priscilla Smeenge.

    • For Lindstrom and Rettstatt, it will be their second Senior Day celebration. The duo was also honored prior to the Feb. 28, 2021 matchup with Stetson before deciding to utilize their extra season of eligibility.
