Liberty will play its final home game during its non-conference schedule as the Flames host Trinity Baptist College. Liberty will look to become the first team in Division I to reach the 10-win mark this season as they welcome Eagle’s head coach, John D. Jones, back to town as Jones is a Liberty alum. The game is being played at the special 10 p.m. time as the Liberty students requested a late night game for the men’s basketball team this season, and Coach McKay was happy to oblige.

Caleb Homesley has been described as being a game-time decision as he battles back from a hamstring injury. He has miss the team’s last 4 games and 5 out of the last 6.

The Flames are one of the final unbeaten teams remaining in the country and have moved up to #2 in the Mid-Major Top 25 poll while also receiving 6 votes in the AP Top 25 last week. The updated poll is to be released later Monday.

Trinity Baptist is officially 0-4 on the season. They have already played two ASUN opponents, losing to North Florida, 115-39, and Stetson, 84-26.


No score prediction given for non-DI games, but Flames have a 100% chance at the win.
