MACON, Ga. – One of six unanimous selections, Lipscomb junior guard Josh Williams has been named to the 2015-16 Preseason All-Atlantic Sun Conference squad as announced by the league on Thursday.
A 2014-15 first-team, All-Conference selection, Williams is the top returning scorer in the league having averaged 16.9 points per game overall and 20.2 points per game in A-Sun contests. The veteran drained 48 percent from the field in 14-15 and earned A-Sun Player of the Week honors on two different occasions.
The Bisons were predicted to finish fourth in the preseason poll of the league’s coaches behind defending champion North Florida, FGCU and league newcomer, NJIT. The A-Sun media believes that Lipscomb will edge out NJIT for the No. 3 spot in the final standings.
Lipscomb is coming off a 7-7 season in conference play that saw the Bisons go 5-2 in Allen Arena. Season tickets for the 2015-16 campaign are on sale now and can be purchased by visiting www.LipscombTickets.com
