Deason's double-double leads women's hoops in loss vs UTM

NASHVILLE – In their first game back at home in over three weeks, the Lipscomb women’s basketball team came up just short in a close affair at Allen Arena on Sunday afternoon, losing 62-53 to UT Martin.

The Lady Bisons (2-7) started out strong, winning the first two periods to take a 29-26 lead in the locker room at halftime.

Freshman Jane Deason was a major part of the Purple and Gold’s hot start, as the sharpshooter knocked down three three-pointers in the first quarter.

She finished the afternoon with a team-high 16 points and a team-leading 10 rebounds for the first double-double of her career. She shot 4-10 from deep to finish one point short of her career high mark.

UT Martin (6-3) came out of halftime with renewed energy, and the Skyhawks outscored the Lady Bisons in the second half 36-24.

Freshman Keely Morrow added 15 points, including a 7-7 mark from the free throw line, and five rebounds.

Junior Anna Hammaker had eight points, seven rebounds, and three steals.

 

BISON TIDBITS:

  • Sophomore Taylor Clark led the team with a career-high three assists. She also grabbed seven rebounds before fouling out in the fourth quarter.
  • UT Martin now leads the all-time series 4-1.
  • To go along with her eight points, junior Lauren Rau had a team-high four steals.
  • Aundrea Adams led UT Martin with 17 points. Three Skyhawks finished in double-figures.
  • UTM out-rebounded the Lady Bisons 44-38, and notched 16 assists to Lipscomb’s 10.
  • Only seven Lady Bisons played in the loss due to a number of injuries. All seven played at least 20 minutes, with Rau playing a team-high 37.

 

UP NEXT:

The Lady Bisons will be back in Allen Arena next Sunday for a 3 p.m. matchup with College of Charleston.
