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.
Building a winning program is hard. Will sustaining that success prove to be even harder for Texas A&M?
Charles Matthews, who spent his freshman season at Kentucky, has picked Michigan as his transfer school, according to a source.
Chad Ford and Jeff Goodman offer their opinions on the surprises they're expecting at the NBA draft, with Ford believing there will be a lot of trade activity while Goodman thinks people will be surprised by potential draft spot of Marquese Chriss.
