Don Meyer's name will always be synonymous with building the Lipscomb basketball program into one of the most respected programs in the nation. When Coach Meyer arrived on the Lipscomb campus in 1975, only once had the Bison basketball program won twenty or more games. Already Coach Meyer has led the Bisons to eight 30-win seasons from 1987-88 to 1992-93. During the 1989-90 season, Coach Meyer guided his team to a national record 41 wins. Since the 1986 season, when the Bisons won the NAIA National Championship, the Bisons have won more games than any other team in all of college basketball. In 1993, Coach Meyer was honored by the NAIA when he was elected to the National Hall of Fame. Also in 1993, coach Meyer reached the 500-win mark in his career faster than any other coach in the history of college basketball. During the summertime the Lipscomb campus is home to the nations largest basketball camp with nearly 5,000 campers visiting Lipscomb each summer. Coach Meyer has also produced two sets of instructional video tapes that have sold to players and coaches at every level of the game. Don Meyer will remain for many years as the winningest coach in Lipscomb history, and will always be recognized as the man who built Lipscomb basketball into one of the country's top programs.
