NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb men’s basketball team wraps up a short, two-game homestand on Friday night in a non-conference tilt with Tennessee Tech at 6:30 p.m. at Allen Arena.
The Bisons (2-3) are coming off a tough 88-79 loss to Murray State on Monday night that saw the Racers pull away down the stretch. Lipscomb looks to build off the solid effort against Murray State including a season-low seven turnovers a season-best free throw shooting effort.
Sophomore forward Malcolm Smith matched his career high against MSU with a 22-point effort and he currently leads the team in scoring averaging 14.1 points per night.
Like the Bisons, Tennessee Tech (3-2) boasts only one senior on the roster, Jud Dillard, who is the player to stop for Lipscomb. Dillard heads into the in-state battle averaging 21.4 points per game hitting 54.4 percent of his shots from the field and a blistering 47.1 attempts from beyond the arch.
The Golden Eagles got off to a good start out of the gate winning their first three contests before stumbling against Evansville and Loyola (Ill.).
