Miller and Pepper claim ASUN All-Academic Honors

LAKEPOINTE, Ga. – The 2017 ASUN Conference Men’s Basketball Postseason Awards are starting to roll in and Cam Miller and Eli Pepper are the first two Lipscomb players to be honored, as the duo were named to the 2017 ASUN All-Academic Team on Friday.

The Bisons were the only team to land two selections on the eight member team that honors both academic achievement and competition on the court.  Miller earned the honor for the second-consecutive year boasting a 3.84 grade point average (GPA) while majoring in financial markets.  Despite being slowed by an injury this season, the senior has been a key component in the team’s rise to a second-place finish in the league standings.

Pepper picks up the honor for the first time behind a 3.44 (GPA) in the classroom.  The sophomore has started 27 contests in the post this season and leads the team in rebounding with a 7.7 per-game average.

Lipscomb opens play in the 2017 ASUN Championship on Monday night as the No. 2 seed hosting No. 7 Stetson.  To purchase tickets visit http://www.LipscombTickets.com or call 615-966-HERD (4373).
