Homesley, Cuffee lead Liberty past Lipscomb, 73-57

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) Liberty is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row, but there is a big difference between them making it last year and doing it again.

Expectations.

"Any time you have a target on your back or you're the team that's expected to win, it's hard," coach Ritchie McKay said after the Flames took command with a long first-half run and beat Lipscomb 73-57 in the ASUN championship Sunday.
