Be sure to check out the story which detailed the 55 points scored in the final 4 minutes.

Liberty scored 33, while Longwood scored 22. In the final two minutes, 34 points were scored. It ended 102-101, Longwood.
So how did Liberty get all those points in such a hurry? They hit seven three-pointers, made all four of their free throws and did not turn the ball over. Their team strategy was to run down the court, make a pass or two and chuck up the first semi-clean look they got. Everything just happened to go in.
Longwood went 15-for-22 from the free throw line in the final 3:55. In the first 36 minutes of regulation, they had gone to the line just 19 times. Despite Liberty’s hot shooting, the Lancers somehow never coughed up the lead down the stretch.
It was a night to remember for two teams with a combined record of 15-41.
