Women's hoops hosts NKU to kick off conference action

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Coming off a dominating victory Monday night, the Lipscomb women’s basketball team looks to carry the momentum into the Atlantic Sun portion of the season against Northern Kentucky on Saturday inside Allen Arena.

The Lady Bisons (5-9) are coming off a 95-71 victory over Trevecca. After a shaky first half, the team exploded on offense in the second half led by Danay Fothergill who scored a season-high 26 points going 7-for-10 from the field and sinking six threes, her career best. Fothergill also made five assists and collected three rebounds.

Northern Kentucky (9-6) transitions into conference mode after posting a 78-57 victory over Georgetown (Ky.) Tuesday night. Melody Doss led the Norse with a season high 22 points. Shar’Rae Davis and Sarah Kinch scored 14 and 10 points respectively while Kaitlyn Gerrety pulled down a career and game-high 11 rebounds.  

Saturday will be a doubleheader with both the men and women playing Northern Kentucky. The women tip-off at 4 p.m. with the men following at 6:30 p.m. Both games will be broadcast on ESPN3 with live stats also available.
