Trio of contests to hit the air for men's hoops

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With television schedules nearing completion, the Lipscomb men’s basketball team will be featured on the air three times during the season including a pair of “Friday Night Game of the Week” Atlantic Sun Conference contests against Northern Kentucky.

The Bisons first television game is slated for Nov. 30 as Lipscomb takes on Georgetown in Washington, D.C. just after Thanksgiving.  The 11 a.m. game will be broadcast on FSN.

The first of the two A-Sun broadcasts that will air on CSS is on Jan. 24 as Lipscomb takes on Nothern Kentucky at the Bank of Kentucky Center in Highland Heights, Ky.  The Bisons will then host the Norse on Feb. 21 as NKU comes to Allen Arena.  Both contests are set for 6 p.m.

2013-14 marks the 12th season for the partnership between CSS and the A-Sun. Matt Stewart returns for his seventh season behind the microphone handling the play-by-play duties and will be joined by Sonny Smith in his 12th season as color commentator.

The ESPN3 exclusive schedule is expected to be released soon and will feature additional coverage of Lipscomb basketball.

The Bisons kick off the 2013-14 season on Halloween night hosting Freed Hardeman in an exhibition tilt at 6 p.m. at Allen Arena.  To purchase single game or season tickets head to or call 615-966-4373.
