Liberty Fans Excited for NCAA Tournament

Lynchburg, VA - The Liberty University men's and women's basketball teams qualified for the NCAA tournament and fans are excited to see them play.

The teams both won Big South conference titles in Myrtle Beach over the weekend and are waiting to find out who they will play in the NCAA opening round.

Tyler Falwell, Director of Alumni Relations, says fans are already planning trips and watch parties.

"This isn't something that happens all the time," said Falwell. "It's something that we certainly appreciate, love when it happens. It hasn't happened all that often for us."

The men's game will most likely be in Dayton, Ohio. About 5,000 Liberty alumni live in the Dayton area.
