Injury-depleted Lady Bisons fall in 'Battle' at Belmont

NASHVILLE – The Lipscomb women’s basketball team brought an injury-ravaged roster into the Curb Event Center on Tuesday night, falling to Belmont 83-43 in the Battle of the Boulevard.

Lipscomb (2-6) only dressed out eight players in the loss, with seven playing 20-plus minutes.

Belmont (5-3) hit a season-high 17 three-pointers to help earn the win.

Lipscomb came out strong, keeping pace with the Bruins early on. At the midway point of the first quarter, the Lady Bisons trailed 9-8 thanks to three-pointers from sophomore Taylor Clark and junior Carleigh Short.

The Bruins answered with a 21-0 run to close the first half, entering the break with a 42-18 lead.

After starting out the second half with a quick 11 points in three minutes, highlighted by a four-point play from freshman Jane Deason, Belmont answered with a 17-2 run of their own to help push the game out of reach.

Deason paced Lipscomb with a team-high 11 points and five rebounds.

The Lady Bisons second-leading scorer Emily Kmec led a contingent of players sidelined due to injury, including freshmen Kailey Rosenbaum and Taylor Hammack.
