    LYNCHBURG, Va. -- John Brown scored 17 points and Allan Chaney had 16 points and a career-high 13 rebounds as High Point won its sixth straight game, beating Liberty 73-68 Saturday night to clinch a share of the Big South Conference North Division.

    The Panthers (15-10, 10-3), who have the best league record after UNC Asheville's loss to Charleston Southern, also secured a first-round bye in the Big South tournament.

    High Point swept the season series against the Flames for only the second time, also winning 77-72 in double overtime on Jan. 16.

    The Panthers led 35-24 at intermission, but Liberty tied it at 42 with 11:40 to go after five straight points by John Caleb Sanders, whose 23 points led the Flames (9-18, 5-8).

    High Point answered with a 15-5 run, but Liberty's 10-2 spurt made it 59-57 with 5:24 left.

    The Panthers made 10 of 12 free throws to seal it.
