Liberty engineers feel-good triumph over Lipscomb

It was just a basketball game. But we really hoped a Liberty team hit hard by tragedy this week would at least have a good time on the basketball court. Jennifer Brown, the mother of Lady Flames star Devon Brown, died on Tuesday, and Devon Brown didn't make the trip to the Vanderbilt Tournament.

So it was pretty cool to see the Lady Flames have a fun and highly successful couple of hours in the tournament's consolation game Saturday. Freshman point guard Reagan Miller had 18 points, Danika Dale and Avery Warley had matching 11-10 double-doubles and LaKendra Washington had a season-high 14 points in the rout.

Now, Lipscomb (0-7) isn't the toughest foe out there. I mean, Liberty's defense is sound, but when you see where Lipscomb shot just 13.8 percent, well....

But that's their problem. For a lot of reasons, we wanted to see the Lady Flames have an everybody-contributes, feel-good victory today. On that score, things turned out better than we could have imagined.
