Bison on the Air
Lipscomb and Belmont meet Friday at Belmont’s Curb Event Center for the first of two times in their final season as Atlantic Sun Conference opponents. The game is set to tip at 7:05 p.m.
Lipscomb leads the overall series 72-56 while Belmont leads the NCAA era series 9-8. Belmont is 29-28 at home against the Bison.
Last year Belmont handed the Bison a shocking 36-point loss, 88-52, at the Curb Center. It was Lipscomb’s worst loss in the NCAA era and Belmont’s biggest win ever against Lipscomb. In last year’s game at Lipscomb, the Bison rebounded from an 18-point deficit in the final 24 minutes of the game for a 73-64 win.
Lipscomb is wrapping up a seven game road trip in which they’ve dropped five games including an 82-61 decision Wednesday night at North Florida. The Bison allowed North Florida to shoot 59.6 percent and the Osprey went on a 23-4 first half run which the Bison were never able to counter.
Lipscomb is led by senior all-conference selection Jordan Burgason who averages 15.4 points and makes 3.8 three-pointers per game. True freshman Zavion Williams posts 11.8 points a game while running the point for the Bison. Center Justin Glenn has emerged in his senior year to average 8.8 points and 7.1 rebounds.
