PEPPER - 2
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Any worries of a hangover from last week’s road win at Missouri were quickly erased on Thursday night at Allen Arena as the Lipscomb men’s basketball team set record after record in a 126-43 win over cross-town foe Fisk.
The Bisons 8-9 wrapped up nonconference action by draining an all-time record 22 threes breaking the previous mark of 21 set against Cumberland in 1991 and Oakland City in 2001. Junior guard Nathan Moran, the reigning ASUN Player of the Week, played a large role in the effort with nine triples of his own tying the NCAA era record of nine held by former sharpshooter Jordan Burgason. Moran ended the night with a career and game-high 27 points.
Sophomore forward Eli Pepper got in on the record action as well setting an NCAA era mark with 25 boards, tied for second most for any player in a game in NCAA Division I this season. Pepper’s effort erased the former mark of 20 held by Adnan Hodzic and gave him his first double-double of the season with his 12 points. Freshman guard Kenny Cooper also claimed a program mark with 13 assists breaking the NCAA era mark of 12 held by Josh Slater and notched his first career double-double with 10 points.
Freshman guard Michael Buckland finished just behind Moran with a career-best 25-point effort to go along with 11 rebounds and four assists for his first career double-double. Junior center George Brammeier also got in on the double-double action with a career-high 22 points and a career-best 14 rebounds.
