NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2017-18 season is quickly approaching for the Lipscomb men’s basketball team and if the preseason predictions are any indication, the Bisons are poised to make a run at the ASUN Conference Championship. The first publication to release its preseason rankings is the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook and the annual journal has picked the Bisons to finish second in the ASUN race behind FGCU.
