NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Set to close out the 2011 portion of the slate, the Lipscomb women’s basketball team hosts Gardner Webb for a non-conference tilt on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. at Allen Arena.
The Lady Bisons (2-10) head into the matinee contest on the heels of a 72-57 loss to Ole Miss that was much closer than the final score indicated. Junior wing Hannah Phillips led the Lady Bisons with a 12-point, eight-rebound effort against the Rebels. Averaging a team-high dozen points a night on the season, it marked the fifth-straight contest that Phillips has led Lipscomb in scoring.
Senior guard Anna Bowers ranks just behind Philips with a 10.7 points-per-game average.
The opponent: Gardner Webb heads into Sunday’s contest looking for their first win on 2011-12 having come up empty in their first eight attempts so far this season . The Runnin’ Bulldogs are coming off a 92-27 loss at No. 15 Louisville on Dec. 10. Gardner Webb leads the all-time series 7-6 but the Lady Bisons are 4-1 on their home court against the Runnin’ Bulldogs.
Catrina Green leads GWU in scoring averaging eight points-per-contest. The sophomore center also leads the squad in rebounding hauling down 7.5 boards a night.
