Liberty upsets Mississippi St 80-76 for 1st NCAA tourney win

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Down by 10 points with less than seven minutes to play against a more accomplished opponent, Liberty didn't give in a bit. Instead, the Flames just kept getting the ball to Caleb Homesley.

Homesley scored 22 of his 30 points in the second half, and Lovell Cabbil hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:16 to play to send 12th-seeded Liberty to its first NCAA Tournament win, 80-76 over fifth-seeded Mississippi State on Friday night.

"Everybody on the team believed we were going to come back," Homesley said. "It was just a matter of time that we were going to make a run."
