Loudoun County boys basketball 61, Liberty 22
Loudoun County held the Liberty Eagles to their lowest offensive output in at least 16 seasons Thursday, winning 61-22 during the LoCoSports Tip-Off boys basketball tournament in Leesburg.
The Eagles made only 15 percent of their field goals, including 1-for-20 on 3-pointers, to drop their record to 1-1.
“This loss isn't going to make us better or stronger, but how we respond to it can,” Eagles coach Pat Frazer said. “If we handled it right, a setback like this can take you places you never [thought] possible.”
The Raiders built a 20-7 lead after the first quarter and expanded that to 32-11 by halftime. The Eagles made 3 of 25 field goals in the first half, going 0-for-14 on 3-pointers.
Derrick Brooks led Liberty with 12 points in the game.
