WBB to open season against Loyola, Georgia Southern

NASHVILLE – The Lipscomb women’s basketball team is set to tip-off its season this weekend with two matchups. On Friday, the Lady Bisons will take on Loyola (MD) in Allen Arena at 6:30 p.m. followed by a tilt at Georgia Southern on Sunday at 1 p.m.

While the Lady Bisons have yet to take on Loyola in the Division I era, they have played Georgia Southern. The two teams played each other in last season’s opening game, with Lipscomb prevailing 80-74. Senior Ashley Southern notched 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and four blocks in the game.

SCOUTING THE GREYHOUNDS:

  • Loyola was tapped to finish eighth in its league, the Patriot League, and senior Colleen Marshall was named to the Preseason All-Patriot League squad. In the 2014-15 season, Marshall averaged 13.4 points and 2.59 steals per game.
  • The Greyhounds finished 7-23 last season, with a 5-13 conference record. They return five of their six leading scorers from that team.
  • Sophomore Bri-Betz White averaged 8.6 per game last season for Loyola, while senior Jeneh Perry notched 7.2 points and 6.9 rebounds a game.

SCOUTING THE EAGLES:

  • Georgia Southern won its only exhibition game of the season 76-51 over Coastal Georgia. Junior Patrice Butler led the team with 20 points and seven rebounds.
  • The Eagles were picked to finish 11th in the Sun Belt Preseason Poll.
  • In the 2014-15 season, Georgia Southern finished 5-24 with a 2-18 conference record.

QUICK HITS:

  • The Lady Bisons head into the match having won both of their exhibition games. In the opening exhibition, Lipscomb defeated Freed Hardeman 63-60. Southern paced the Lady Bisons with a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore Lauren Cagle added nine points, six rebounds and five assists for the Lady Bisons.
  • In the second exhibition match, Lipscomb trumped Young Harris 100-61. The Lady Bisons rode a hot second quarter in which they scored 29 points to the win. The team hit 11 of 21 three-pointers on the night for a 52.4 percent clip. They also made 25 of 31 free throws. Cagle paced Lipscomb with 23 points and eight assists, while sophomore Riley Northway added 22 points and nine rebounds.
  • Southern was unanimously voted to the Preseason Atlantic Sun All-Conference team by the league’s head coaches. Last season, she finished second in the A-Sun in scoring with 14.3, and fifth in rebounds with 8.4. Lipscomb was picked to finish sixth overall in the conference in both the coaches poll and the media poll.
