1. Liberty

The Flames head into this upcoming season with the loss of leading scorer 6’1 F/C Keyen Green (13.9 ppg) who transferred to the University of Tennessee and 5’9 G Asia Todd (8.6 ppg) who transferred to UCF, after leaving Liberty due to the school’s handling of racial issues.

Liberty returns 5’11 R-SR G/F Emily Lytle (11.6 ppg) and 5’6 SR G Ashytn Baker (11.2 ppg) in their back court, looking to build off last year’s 20-11 finish, and ASUN Championship game berth which sadly was cancelled due to COVID-19. 6’2 R-SR foward Bridgette Rettstatt returns and will be paired with 6’3 JR F/C Mya Berkman giving Liberty a huge height advantage in the post. The Flames will face Virginia Tech, Ohio, and Memphis as part of their Non-Conference schedule.
