SAN JOSE, Calif. — On Saturday, Liberty players still were savoring their Friday night trip to In-N-Out Burger as the 12th-seeded Flames celebrated their 80-76 victory over fifth-seeded Mississippi State in fitting fashion.
“Double-Double,’’ Liberty forward Myo Baxter-Bell reported as if he could still taste the double-patty burger and the school’s first NCAA tournament victory.

“When you are my weight and my body fat, you get exempted from opportunities like that,’’ McKay said with a grin. “But I think the players enjoyed it, and yeah, it was good. They need to have a little fun once in a while.’’
