The Liberty are in the midst of a critical five-game homestand, in which they hope to turn around what has been a poor start to the season. Coach Bill Laimbeer and the entire Liberty team had obvious frustration after Friday night’s 73-69 loss to the Chicago Sky. Laimbeer said at the conclusion of the press conference that this defeat was “a tough one to take.” New York was outscored 50-37 in the first half, and despite a second half run, were unable to complete the comeback. This loss put the Liberty at 4-11, last place in the Eastern Conference.

When Quai Jefferson was just 6 years old, his mother was diagnosed was Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that affects the central nervous system. This is devastating news for any family, but is especially tough when it affects a single mother and her young son. For Quai, his mother was everything to him.
