Comeback bid falls short for women's hoops at JU in first ASUN action

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  - The Lipscomb women’s basketball team opened up the ASUN portion of the schedule with a close loss on Saturday as the Lady Bisons fell at Jacksonville 62-47.

Lipscomb (2-12) were trailing by 18 heading into the fourth quarter before cutting the Dolphins (8-6) lead to nine, but the comeback bid fell short as the momentum shifted back toward JU in the final minutes.

Taylor Clark led the Lady Bisons down the stretch in their comeback attempt. The sophomore scored nine of her game-high 13 points in the final frame.

Clark also secured a team-best six rebounds, and shot 5-10 from the field.

Junior Lauren Rau and freshman Jane Deason each added nine points.

Deason also dished out a team-high three assists, while Rau snatched a career-high five steals.

Lipscomb outscored JU 27-25 in the second half, including 18-15 in the fourth quarter, but the first half struggles stalled the comeback bid.
