LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - John Brown scored 17 points and Allan Chaney had 16 points and a career-high 13 rebounds as High Point won its sixth straight game, beating Liberty 73-68 Saturday night to clinch a share of the Big South Conference North Division.

The Panthers led 35-24 at intermission, but Liberty tied it at 42 with 11:40 to go after five straight points by John Caleb Sanders, whose 23 points led the Flames (9-18, 5-8).

High Point answered with a 15-5 run, but Liberty's 10-2 spurt made it 59-57 with 5:24 left.

The Panthers made 10 of 12 free throws to seal it.
