NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With a 3-game road swing behind them, the Lipscomb men’s basketball team returns to home action on Thursday night hosting Atlantic Sun Conference foe Stetson at 6:30 p.m. at Allen Arena.
The contest between the Bisons and Hatters will air on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app with Jonathan and Justin Seamon calling the action from Don Meyer Court.
The two squads met less than two weeks ago on Jan. 31 in the “Sunshine State” as the Hatters came from behind to claim a 75-73 in the final minutes of action on their home court. Stetson holds a 14-12 advantage in the series but Lipscomb has a 10-3 edge in the “Music City”.
Inside the Herd:
- Sophomore guard Josh Williams continues to lead the way for the Bisons averaging a conference second-best 20.6 points per game in league play and 16.6 points per outing overall. He leads the team with 32 steals on the season and is tied for the team lead in rebounding hauling in boards a 5.1 per game clip.
- Already a member of the exclusive 1,000-point club, senior forward Malcolm Smith became the NCAA era career record holder for the Bisons last Saturday night hitting eight gimmes to pass Josh Slater’s previous mark of 484. The Clarksville native ranks seventh all-time in A-Sun history.
- Sophomore guard J.C. Hampton notched 10 assists in the win against Jacksonville becoming just the second Bison to do so in the NCAA era. Hampton joined Slater, who accomplished the feat five times and holds the single-game record of 11 helpers. Hampton leads the A-Sun in assist-to-turnover ratio in conference contests.
- The Bisons have tried 11 different starting lineups in 2014-15 with no fivesome getting more than six starts. The quintet of Nathan Moran, J.C. Hampton, Josh Williams, Malcolm Smith and Brett Wishon hold the distinction of starting the most games and posting a 4-2 mark.
- 70 seems to be the magic number for the Bisons as eight of the 10 wins have come when the Purple and Gold hold the opponent to 70 points are fewer.
