The Lipscomb Bison return to Allen Arena Saturday evening for a 6:30 p.m. Atlantic Sun Conference matchup with USC Upstate on ESPN3.

The Bison haven’t enjoyed their traditional home court advantage this season.  From 2004 to 2011 Lipscomb was 76-18 in Allen Arena.  The Bison are 6-5 this season and a loss would Saturday would give Lipscomb their worse home record since finishing 5-9 in the 2003-04 season.

Lipscomb’s active scoring leader is freshman Malcolm Smith at 9.7 tallies.  Malcolm paced the Bison with 19 points in Monday’s 89-68 loss at Florida Gulf Coast.  Lipscomb shot  35.3 percent in the first 35 minutes before hitting five-of-seven attempts to close the game.   FGCU shot 54.0 percent.  It was the ninth time Lipscomb’s opponent made over half of their shots.

Lipscomb scored a season-low 52 points, shot a dismal 32.7 percent and committed 20 turnovers falling 61-52 at USC Upstate on Jan. 23.  Lipscomb held Upstate to 30.4 percent shooting, their best defensive effort on the season.
