Liberty: Antic on fire at Euro U20 B Championships

Her Macedonia team may be still looking for its first win, but Liberty University's Jelena Antic has been a dominating individual force through two games of the European U20 B Championships. Antic leads the tournament with 25.5 points and 12 rebounds per game and is second among all players with 4.5 assists. One can only imagine how much Antic will score if her 3-point shot starts falling. Liberty's rising sophomore is 0-11 from long distance so far in the tournament.

Antic scored 26 points in Macedonia's 71-62 loss to the Czech Republic on Saturday, then dropped 25 on Great Britain in a 70-69 defeat on Sunday. Macedonia will continue pool play on Monday against Belgium.

It's a good thing Antic is staying sharp, because the way Liberty's schedule is shaping up, the Flames are going to need all the practice they can get. On Nov. 22, the Flames will travel to College Station to take on Texas A&M, the defending Big 12 champion. Four days later, Liberty heads to Waco to face Baylor, a 2010 Final Four team featured 6-8 force-of-nature Brittney Griner.
