LU Women Fall at Presbyterian 46-43


Clinton, SC -  The Liberty U. women dropped their third straight road game Thursday night, falling at Presbyterian 46-43.

Mickayla Sanders' three-point try at the final buzzer fell off the mark and the Blue Hose celebrated their first-ever home win over the Lady Flames.

Liberty led for most of the defensive struggle, but Presbyterian took a one-point lead with two free throws with less than 22 seconds left.  The Flames missed two potential go-ahead shots, the Blue Hose added two more free throws with four seconds left and that would be the final, 46-43 Presbyterian.  

Sadalia Ellis was the only Flame to score in double figures with 10 points.

Liberty falls to 14-10 overall and 10-5 in Big South play.  The nation's No. 4-ranked scoring defense, Presbyterian, limited the Lady Flames to season-lows for points (43), field goal percentage (30 percent, 15-of-50) and three-point field goal percentage (5.9 percent, 1-of-17).

Presbyterian improves to 8-and-17 overall, 6-and-10 in the Big South with just its second career win over Liberty in 12 games.
