The Game

The Lipscomb Bisons host former Atlantic Sun foe and current Big South Conference member Gardner-Webb Sunday evening at 7:15.  A win for the Bisons gives them a 2-0 start for the first time since the 2006-07 season and for only the second time since moving to the NCAA.

Gardner-Webb leads the all-time series 8-7.  The teams met twice a year from the 2000-01 to 2007-08 seasons with the exception of the 2002-03 season when the squads didn’t play.  Lipscomb is 4-2 in Allen Arena against Gardner-Webb and has won the last four meetings in Allen.

Lipscomb defeated Fort Valley State 96-53 at home Friday.  Senior Justin Glenn paced the Bisons with 16 points on 7-of-7 shooting.  Also in double figures for the Bisons were guard Zavion Williams with 14, guard Deonte Alexander with 12, guard Robert Boyd with 11 and guard Carter Sanderson with 10.  

Gardner-Webb is coming off a 65-44 loss at Clemson Friday night. The game was tied at halftime, but Clemson held a 36-15 second half advantage. Gardner-Webb was led by Laron Buggs with 14 points and seven rebounds.  The Bulldogs shot a cool 31.1 percent connecting on 14 field goals in 45 attempts.
