Key Reserves

G – Keegan McDowell – Senior

McDowell is one of the most experienced players on this team and will be the sixth man off Liberty’s bench this year. McDowell averaged six points, two rebounds, and one assist off 47% shooting and 40% from three. McDowell is a sniper from beyond the arc for the Flames’ who can get hot at any time. If Dobbs underperforms to start the season, look for McDowell to move into the starting five.

C – Shiloh Robinson – Junior

Robinson played in all 29 games off the bench last year for Ritchie McKay and averaged four points, three rebounds on 50% shooting. Robinson is a solid rebounder and a good veteran presence to have coming off the bench. He should get solid playing time off the bench this season.

G – Brody Peebles – Freshman

Peebles is one of the highest recruits in school history and can absolutely fill the stat sheet up. He scored over 3,000 career points in high school and was named Alabama 6A player of the year. Peebles is an excellent scorer and could threaten for A-Sun freshmen of the year.

G – Isaiah Warfield – Sophomore

Warfield who was the highest-graded recruit in Liberty basketball history, averaged a  point, 0.6 rebounds, and 0.3 assists in limited playing time. Warfield has a ton of upside and could be a major contributor to Ritchie McKay this season.
