Liberty forward Scottie James, the team's leading scorer at 12.9 points a game, continues to spend a lot of time on the bench in favor of reserve forward Myo Baxter-Bell. James was taken out before the first timeout, and really hasn't made much impact in the Flames' tournament run so far. He had only 6 points and 6 rebounds in 23 minutes in Liberty's first-round upset of Mississippi State. Yesterday, Flames coach Ritchie McKay said he expected James to bounce back. "I don't equate his impact on our game on his statistics," McKay said. "He didn't have a usual Scottie James night but I have every bit of confidence that that could change the next time we put the uniform on." But so far, it's been more of what we saw Friday.
