The Game

The Lipscomb Bisons play their second of four games as part of the Cancun Challenge Saturday at Illinois State. The game is set to tip at 4 p.m.

Coach Scott Sanderson’s Bisons need to find their shooting stroke in Redbird Arena after shooting a chilly 31.7 percent at Illinois Thursday evening in a 79-64 loss.

Junior Jacob Arnett and sophomore Rober Boyd set themselves apart against Illinois hitting 11-of-18 shots while the rest of the Bisons were 8-of-42 (19.0 percent).  Arnett had a career-high 17 points making a career-best four 3-pointers.  Boyd finished with 16 points also hitting four treys.

Illinois State defeated SIU Edwardsville 68-38 Thursday evening.  Lipscomb faces SIU Edwardsville in the third game of the Cancun Challenge, and first game actually in Cancun, on Tuesday.

This is the first meeting between the schools.  The Bisons are 1-1 against Missouri Valley Schools since moving the Division I.  Lipscomb played Evansville twice in the 2006-07 season with each school winning on its home court.
