Monday dribble: Radford's big chance

Monday's games

Liberty (15-4, 6-1 Big South) at Radford (5-13, 4-3 Big South), 7 p.m.
This could be a defining week for the Highlanders, who will close the first half of league play tonight against the defending conference champion Lady Flames and open the second half Saturday by hosting current league-leader Gardner-Webb. Radford has won three straight at the Dedmon Center, so if they're going to make a move in the Big South race, this is the week. The Lady Flames have won eight straight, but here are our favorite stats - 72.8 percent of their points and 75.8 percent of their rebounds are delivered by freshmen and sophomores. We continue to be amazed at how coach Carey Green has turned over so much of the roster from last season with no loss in productivity. Liberty 57, Radford 52

Hampton (9-10, 5-3 MEAC) at Maryland-Eastern Shore (7-10, 4-3 MEAC), 6 p.m.
The Lady Pirates' average victory margin during their current three-game winning streak is 23 points, and they're coming off a 19-point rout at Delaware State. Still, Hampton is just 2-2 in MEAC road games, and one of the victories was an overtime affair at MEAC-winless Norfolk State. In short, although the Lady Pirates are playing well, they'd better not take this one for granted. Hampton 60, UMES 57

Coppin State (7-11, 3-4 MEAC) at Norfolk State (3-13, 0-7 MEAC), 6 p.m.
School may be closed at the NSU campus, but the game will go on as scheduled. Tough turnarounds for both teams as NSU and Coppin State had scheduled Saturday games postponed until Sunday and will be playing on back-to-back days. But it's probably tougher on a Spartans squad which because of injuries is down to just nine players. Coppin State 60, Norfolk State 50
