Liberty vs High Point

Liberty 61, High Point 60


CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Liberty built a 17-point halftime lead, then held off a furious High Point rally for a 61-60 upset Thursday night in a Big South tournament quarterfinal.

The Flames (13-20, 6-10) will play Gardner-Webb in Saturday's semifinals.

Liberty, which never trailed, led 39-22 at halftime and by 19 early in the second half. But High Point (17-13, 12-4) mounted a furious late rally. The Panthers, down by 19, got within a point in the final minute but couldn't get off a shot in the closing seconds.

Tavares Speaks led Liberty with 17 points. Davon Marshall scored 16 and John Caleb Sanders pitched in 12. Sanders was 6 for 6 at the foul line, and Liberty was a collective 17 of 18 at the stripe. High Point made 18 of 26 free throws.
