CLASS DISMISSED: Liberty Univ. Associate AD Kevin Keys said 5,380 of the roughly 7,000 students at the school attended yesterday’s game against Clemson Univ., which tipped off at 10:00am. In Virginia, Chris Lang notes Liberty’s administration “allowed students to miss their 9:15 and 10:50 a.m. classes to attend” the game. Students were “given passes that had to be time stamped at the Vines Center exits, and not one could leave until the game was over.” Total attendance at the game was 8,143, the “ninth largest in Vines Center history and the second time the arena has exceeded its 8,085-seat capacity since seating was reduced from 9,000 several years ago” (LYNCHBURG NEWS ADVOCATE, 11/18).
