YEAR INDUCTED
2003
John Pierce is living proof of the old saying, "Good things come to those who sit and wait." After a redshirt freshman year for the Lipscomb University basketball team, John started rewriting the record books on both the school and national level. John is all-time leading scorer in the history of college basketball, scoring 4.230 points from 1990 to 1994. Ironically, his former roommate Phillip Hutcheson held the title at the time. Included in the record are school career marks for free throws made with 881 and field goals made with 1,627. His 54 points on Nov. 14, 1992 set a school single-game scoring record. Known as much for his rebounding as for his scoring, John also holds the school career record with 1,497. He was a two time NAIA Player of the Year. He was named an All-American all four years he played with the Bisons, earning first-team honors for three seasons. John played five season of professional basketball in both Australia and Japan. He has also been inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame. John Pierce truly will always have a prominent face in the history of Lipscomb Basketball.
