Coming off of a weekend split against Jacksonville last weekend, the Bisons sat at 7-5 coming into their last home weekend seeking a win in the first game of the series against Kennesaw State. The Bisons won, 76-62.
Kennesaw coming in with their first conference win of the season the previous weekend against Stetson was looking to keep their momentum against Lipscomb.
The first half was an even duel for both teams with nearly identical stat lines through the first 20 minutes of play.
In the first half, Asadullah hit solid from the field and the free-throw line.
A healthy performance from Jake Wolfe and Mr. Consistent, Romeo Ferguson helped the Bisons in the first half. However, it was Kennesaw who was up at the half 35-36.
Backed by solid play from #3, Youngblood, with 12 points that matched Asadullah’s first-half mark. 11 first-half turnovers are what kept the game as close as it was.
After the halftime break, Lipscomb came back out re-energized and looking fired-up. With a pristine night’s finish for Asadullah (23 points) and continual effort from Johnson, Ferguson, and Wolfe — the Bisons finished the game out handily, 76-62.
Lipscomb finished the game seeing 4 players score in double figures — Johnson (16), Ferguson (13), Wolfe (12), Asadullah (23). It was just the win Lipscomb needed to move the Bisons to 8-5 in Conference play.
Lipscomb and Kennesaw State will finish their series matchup on Saturday night in Allen Arena at 7 PM. You can stream the game through ESPN+ or listen along through our own, Bison Radio through our website, or iOS app.
