By the Numbers

New York, NY - January 23, 2005 - Shakespeare asked "what's in a name?" But in sports, perhaps the better question would be "what's in a number?" Because in the sports world, individuals become identified by the number on the back of their jerseys. Players are associated by the numbers they wear rather than the names they were given. The whole world knows who number 23 belongs to. And every Liberty fan knows who drives the lane wearing number 25.

During the past nine years, many women have donned the Liberty uniform. To be exact, 55 athletes have sported 33 different numbers in the history of the team. So you've cheered for number 50 to grab a much needed rebound, or for number 11 to drain a buzzer-beating shot. How many of the names and numbers do you remember?
