Women's basketball heads to NJIT for Saturday matchup

NEWARK, N.J. – The Lipscomb women’s basketball team returns to action on Saturday as they head to New Jersey for an afternoon matchup with NJIT.

The game between the Lady Bisons (6-14, 2-3) and Highlanders (3-17, 1-4) is set to tip off at noon. You can follow along on live stats and live streaming for both games at the links provided.

 

SCOUTING THE HIGHLANDERS:

  • This is the fifth time the two programs have faced off in the Division I era. NJIT owns a 3-1 series lead.
  • Stetson’s last outing was a 75-65 win over UNF at home.
  • Tatianna Torres leads the Highlanders with 11.7 points per game.

She was one of 20 student-athletes to earn the recognition and one of only two players from a mid-major program to make the list in consecutive seasons.
  • Cagle earned the first ASUN Player of the Week of the season and the first for the women’s basketball program since 2015 after a stat sheet-filling opening weekend performance. She has since won two more ASUN Player of the Week awards to give her a program-best three on the year. She also scored a career-high 31 points in a 73-69 win at North Florida.
  • Redshirt-freshman Emily Kmec has notched three or more three-pointers nine times this season. She scored a career-high 19 points in the loss to Butler, including a 5-8 mark from deep.
  • In a win over Alabama A&M, Taylor Clark earned the program’s first ASUN Freshman of the Year award by scoring 18 points on 6-8 shooting. She scored a career-high 21 points in a loss to Stetson.
  • Sophomore Lauren Rau has dished out four or more assists 12 times on the year.
