LAKEPOINTE, Ga. – Lipscomb’s Garrison Mathews has been named the ASUN Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week as announced by the league on Monday.
Mathews led the Bisons to a 2-1 week on the road including a 74-66 win at Belmont that saw the guard score 22 points and grab six rebounds as Lipscomb snapped an 11-game skid to the Bruins. The Franklin, Tennessee native followed that performance with an 18-point night at Tennessee Tech before closing the week with an 8-point, 5-rebound effort against Tennessee State on Saturday. On the week, he averaged 16 points per game, 4.3 rebounds per game and collected four steals in three games.
The award is the second of the season for Mathews after previously collecting the laurel on Nov. 13.
The Bisons host a rematch with rival Belmont tonight at 7:15 p.m. at Allen Arena. To purchase tickets visit: http://www.LipscombTickets.com or call 615-966-HERD (4373).
