NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Looking to improve to 4-0 in Atlantic Sun Conference action, the Lipscomb men’s basketball team returns to Allen Arena on Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. to take on Jacksonville.
The game is set to air on ESPN3 with Jonathan and Justin Seamon calling the action.
The Dolphins own the all-time lead in the series between the two foes 13-11. The two teams split the contests in 2013-14 with each squad winning on the road.
Inside the Herd:
- The 3-0 start in A-Sun play marks the best league start in school history.
- Lipscomb looks to make it five-straight wins on Thursday night. The last time a Bison squad did that was in 2009-10 when the Purple and Gold finished the regular season with five-straight victories to claim the A-Sun Regular Season Championship.
- Sophomore guard Josh Williams picked up a pair of Player of the Week honors this week behind named co-Player by the Atlantic Sun Conference and Player of the Week by the Tennessee Sports Writer’s Assocation as the top performance in the Volunteer State. He scored 18 points against USC Upstate on Tuesday night before pouring in 28 on Saturday at Kennesaw State.
- Williams leads the team in scoring averaging 15.9 ppg. That figure ranks third best in the Atlantic Sun. Williams leads the team in rebounding averaging 5.3 boards a night and has scored in double figures in 19 of the last 20 games.
- 70 seems to be the magic number for the Bisons as eight of the nine wins have come when the Purple and Gold hold the opponent to 70 points are fewer.
- Senior forward Malcolm Smith moved into the No. 2 position all-time on the free-throw charts as a Bison in the game at Austin Peay. The veteran hit 5-of-6 from the charity strip to move past former Lipscomb great Adnan Hodzic with 405. Smith has 453 and now trails only Josh Slater, who finished with 484. He ranks eighth in A-Sun history and his 672 attempts ranks sixth among active NCAA career leaders.
