SCOUTING THE HATTERS:

  • The Hatters are 7-9-2 on the season, including a 3-2-1 record in conference play, but carry a four-game losing streak into the ASUN Tournament. 
  • This will be the 20th-ever matchup between the two programs. Stetson holds a 10-7-2 advantage in the all-time series, including a 3-1 win in DeLand, Florida earlier this season. However, the Bisons prevailed 2-0 in 2018’s ASUN Final against the Hatters. 
  • Senior Ian McCauley was named the ASUN’s Defensive Player of the Year and was unanimously voted onto the All-Conference First Team. 
  • Midfielder Sebastian Chaulbaud joined McCauley on the First Team, while defender Gabriel Diniz made the Second Team. 

 

QUICK KICKS:

  • The Bisons enter the tournament as the two-time defending ASUN champs, winning as the 6-seed in 2017 and the 1-seed in 2018. They are unbeaten in their past five ASUN Tournament matches. 
  • Lipscomb enters the match at 5-8-2 with a 3-3 ASUN record in ASUN play. The Bisons won their last two regular season outings: 1-0 vs North Florida and 1-0 at Liberty. 
  • Five Bisons were honored at the ASUN awards banquet: Ben Locke and Noah Gulden were named First-Team All-Conference, Austin Eager was voted Second-Team All-Conference, Ruben Pedersen was named to the All-Freshman Team, and Locke, Gulden, Eager, and Daniel Muhlbauer earned All-Academic honors. 
  • Pedersen leads the Bisons with four goals, while Pedersen and redshirt-junior Malik Shaheed are tied for the team lead with eight points. Pedersen also tops the team with 29 shots and 14 shots on goal. 
  • 14 different Bisons have logged a point on the season. 
  • Three Bisons have split time in goal this season: redshirt-freshman Alex Brown has seven appearances and 18 saves, freshman Michael Sibley has five appearances and 13 saves, and redshirt-junior Luke Wilson has five appearances and 16 saves. 
  • For the first time in program history, Lipscomb entered the season receiving votes in the United Soccer Coaches Preseason Poll. They finished last season ranked in the top-25 of three different polls after making a run to the NCAA Sweet 16.
