The Lipscomb men’s basketball team just hit a speed bump in what has otherwise been a near-perfect season. After the Bisons handed Liberty a 79-59 defeat in Lynchburg, Virginia on Jan. 29, the Flames returned the favor by escaping with a 74-66 victory Wednesday in front of 3,437 Allen Arena fans. “The only thing to do is tip your hat to [Liberty],” Lipscomb coach Casey Alexander said. “Our teams are comparable… we’re both efficient at what we do. They were just better.” The loss was Lipscomb’s first in ASUN play and snapped an 11-game win streak. The Bisons (20-5, 11-1 ASUN) had not lost since Dec. 30 at Clemson (84-67).

The Lipscomb men’s basketball team continued to steamroll through the ASUN as the Bisons grabbed an 86-57 win over the Kennesaw State Owls in Allen Arena Monday night. The Owls (3-17, 0-5 ASUN) kept things a bit too close for comfort for Lipscomb at first, but the Bisons (14-4, 5-0 ASUN) broke away in the second half to stay perfect in conference play. “[You’ve] gotta be prepared for everything,” Lipscomb coach Casey Alexander said. “And I felt like our guys handled the game where we never really played with great rhythm but still [won] by 29.” Read Spencer Boehme’s full recap here.

Two installments of the Battle of the Boulevard brought two heartbreaking finishes for the Lipscomb men’s basketball team. That’s the story after the Belmont Bruins (7-1) bested the Lipscomb Bisons (6-2) by a score of 76-74 in a crowded Curb Event Center Tuesday night. Down by two, Lipscomb had 0.8 seconds to score a game-tying or a game-winning shot off a throw-in from the goal side, but redshirt senior guard Nate Moran missed a three-point attempt that bounced around the rim and fell to the floor with no time left. “It was a good shot by a good shooter, and it didn’t go in,” Lipscomb head coach Casey Alexander said. “And so we lost.” Read Spencer Boehme’s full recap of the men’s game here. Lack of shot accuracy and a stout Belmont defense haunted the Lipscomb women’s basketball team on Tuesday night, as they lost 83-43 to Belmont at the Curb Event Center in the annual Battle of the Boulevard. Belmont spread the ball well, as junior forward Ellie Harmeyer and freshman forward Conley Chinn each scored 15 points. “Well, they’re just solid,” Lipscomb head coach Greg Brown said. “Their positioning, I mean, is exactly what we thought it would be. They did a great job taking the paint away and making [us] shoot over-the-top.” Read Spencer Boehme’s full recap of the women’s game here. Photos by Mckenzi Harris « ‹ 1 of 3 ›...
