LU Women Beat Asheville 64-49


Lynchburg - Ashley Rininger and Katelyn Adams posted double-doubles to help power Liberty past UNC-Asheville Thursday night in Lynchburg.

Rininger led the Flames in scoring with 20 points, adding 11 rebounds.  Adams chipped in 13 points and 13 rebounds.  Liberty was able to avenge an earlier loss to Asheville.

The Flames dominated the boards, a 48-28 advantage for the game, also points in the paint (38-14) and second-chance points (21-10).

With the win, Liberty improves to 16-and-10 overall, 12-and-5 in Big South play.  Now in sole possession of third in the conference standings, the Lady Flames clinched a first-round bye in the upcoming Big South Tournament.

Liberty's Simone Brown chipped in eight points and five rebounds during her second start in a row.  Emily Frazier distributed a team-high four assists, leaving the redshirt junior two shy of 300 for her career.

For the Bulldogs, Wormack and Brittany Gwyn led the way with 10 points each. Knuckles collected a team-best five rebounds, while Ja'Da Brayboy topped all players in assists (5) and steals (4).

Asheville's leading scorer and rebounder on the season, Paige Love, was limited to three points and one board on Thursday.

 Liberty will wrap up its 2013-14 regular-season home schedule Saturday at 7 p.m., when Big South-leading Winthrop (20-6, 14-3 Big South) visits the Vines Center. The Lady Flames will attempt to complete a season sweep of the Eagles, after recording a 77-70 overtime win at Winthrop Jan. 16.  Liberty has won 21 straight home meetings with Winthrop.
