NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The preseason accolades continue to roll in for Lipscomb guard Garrison Mathews as he has been named by NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk as an honorable mention All-American.
The laurel comes on the heels of Mathews being named a unanimous All-ASUN selection last week by the league’s coaches and a preseason choice by the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook. The junior returns as the top leading scorer in the ASUN with a 20.4 points per game average a year ago. He became the fastest player in Lipscomb history in the NCAA Division I era to reach the 1,000 point mark last season as he accomplished the feat in 65 games.
Mathews and the Bisons open play on Nov. 10 hosting Emory at 6:30 p.m. at Allen Arena. To purchase tickets, call 615-966-HERD (4373) or visit http://www.LipscombTickets.com
