    LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Stan Okoye scored 32 points with 11 rebounds as Virginia Military Institute pulled away from Liberty 83-66 Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak.

    The Keydets (12-16, 7-8 Big South Conference), who also defeated the Flames 82-69 on Jan. 9, accomplished the first regular-season sweep by either team since the Flames won twice in 2006-07.

    The win also gave VMI coach Duggar Baucom his 116th victory, tying him with Bart Bellairs (1995-2005) for the most in school history.

    Okoye was 11-of-18 shooting, hitting 6 of 9 3-pointers as the Keydets went 13 of 34 from long range.

    Rodney Glasgow contributed 18 points and Brian Brown 10 for VMI, which closed the first half on a 16-9 run to lead 45-36. Liberty (10-20, 5-10) could get no closer than seven after the break.

    John Caleb Sanders scored 20 points, surpassing 900 for his Flames career, and Tavares Speaks added 19.
