#1 FGCU decided to take #2 Liberty into deep waters, and the Flames couldn’t keep up offensively with the Eagles. #1 FGCU shot 50% from beyond the arc, hitting 17 three point field goals, and would not be denied another ASUN Championship, especially at home, from Alico Arena. TK Morehouse led the Eagles offensively, scoring a game high 20 points in the game. Emma List carried the Eagles in the first half, and finished with 16 points for FGCU. Sha Carter (15 points), and Maddie Antenucci (14 points) also finished in double figures in scoring for FGCU.

#2 Liberty was led offensively by Kennedi Williams, who scored 15 points. The Eagles dished out 18 assists, and when you combine that stat with the 8 steals, it’s a recipe for another ASUN Championship. Liberty’s only lead in this game was 9-7 early in the first half of the game. The Eagles put up 46 2nd half points en route to the big victory. This game will be the last game between the Flames and Eagles as ASUN members, since Liberty is headed to Conference USA, and the chess match battles between Coach Green and Coach Smesko will never be forgotten. What a season for the Eagles at 32-3, and we can’t wait to see them bust brackets in March.

What’s Next:

FGCU heads to the NCAA Tournament, and will find out their opponent Sunday night.
