Liberty Flames Basketball History

The Liberty Flames began to play in the 1972-73 season as a member of the National Christian College Association and became an NAIA member in 1975. The Flames went 28-11 and won the NCAA National Championship for the 1979-80 season. Liberty kept climbing the ladder and played in the NAIA Tournament in 1983.

The Flames were granted NCAA Division I membership on Sept. 1, 1988 and played as an independent for three years before joining the Big South Conference for the 1991-92 season. The Big South agreed with the Flames at the beginning, as Liberty finished 22-7 its first season and won the conference tournament in its third year, sending the team to the 1994 NCAA Tournament.

Liberty had some up-and-down years for the next decade before winning a share of the 2003-04 regular season title and also capturing the conference tournament to earn its second trip to the NCAA Tournament. In 2008-09, Liberty went 21-10 in the regular season and split two games in the conference tournament to receive a bid to the CIT, where it lost in the quarterfinals.

Stunning the Big South

The Flames stunned the Big South Conference when its 2012-13 team finished 6-10 in conference play but managed to capture the conference tournament, giving Liberty its third trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Flames received CIT bids in 2017 and 2018, going 2-1 each time.

After spending 27 years in the Big South Conference, Liberty switched to the ASUN Conference for the 2018-19 season and promptly won the regular season title and the conference tournament title in its first three seasons. The Flames competed in the 2019 and 2021 NCAA Tournaments but there was no tournament held in 2020 due to COVID.

Liberty won the regular NCAA season conference title in 2022 but was upset by Bellarmine in the tournament semifinals.
