Lipscomb coach Scott Sanderson jumped at the opportunity to play Indiana, not only seeking a signature game, but also to increase Lipscomb's presence in the prospect-heavy state.

Cross-town rival Belmont visits Allen Arena on Feb. 12.

Lipscomb coach Scott Sanderson was justifiably elated when Dedrick arrived in Nashville, enrolled in summer school and began working out, preparing for his career as a Bison. But that all changed when Dedrick was unexpectedly selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the MLB draft.
With a 3-0 record in pool play, the Reach USA team featuring Bisons Michael Teller and Brandon Brown entered the tournament in Turkey on a roll. Unfortunately the team was upset by the Hoge School of Belgium 47-43 in overtime.
