SportsNation Blog Archives Liberty Flames
Liberty is headed to the NCAA tournament after defeating Charleston Southern in the Big South conference championship game. This wouldn't be so terribly unusual, save for the fact that Liberty has lost 20 games this season. Despite their losing record, the Flames will have a chance to take part in March Madness. Manhattan (14-17) also has a chance to go dancing if it beats Iona in the MAAC championship game Monday night.
Any day with college basketball on television is a good thing. A day when college basketball is always on television is a great thing. With the march to the Final Four in Indianapolis underway (and the march to San Antonio for the women), ESPN is showing nothing but basketball Tuesday -- 12 games in 24 hours. And that doesn't even include the games going on ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN360.com and ESPN Mobile. At this point, you've already missed the start of class (and Cal State Fullerton upsetting UCLA) but there's still time to salvage the day.
