Liberty Team News
Seeded 12th, Liberty Flames did the unexpected. They took their first NCAA win in school history against 5th seed Mississippi State Bulldogs. Liberty came back from a deficit of 10 points with 7 minutes to go and took an 80-76 against a high quality opposition. Caleb Homesley was the star of the night scoring 30 points out of which 22 came in the second half. He also hit the go ahead 3 pointer with 1 minute and 16 seconds to go. Lovell Cabbil also added 18 points along with Myo- Baxter-Bell who added 13points which made it possible. It shows a lot when a team goes down by 10 points and still gets the victory against a much higher ranked opposition. They will surely want to repeat what they did. But the Virginia Tech defense would be a tough one to break. Let’s see if they can go one step further in this elite tournament.
Virginia Tech Team News
The Virginia Tech Hokies registered their first win in 12 years in an NCAA tournament when they defeated the ST Louis Billikens by a scoreline of 66-52. The Hokies had a big lead in the first half boosted by the return of Justin Robinson who was a bit rusty but still managed to score 9 points after coming off the bench and staying for just 27 mins. The talisman also got three assists and four turnovers. Nickeil Alexander Walker was the top scorer with 20 points and Kerry Blackshear also added 15. This was a big boost to the confidence of the team after. We will have to wait and watch to see if that is enough for them and if they can go another step to the Sweet Sixteen.
