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.

Senior guard Garrison Mathews is rewriting the Lipscomb basketball record books. Thanks to a 20-point performance against Stetson on Saturday, Mathews eclipsed the 2,000-point mark for his career and passed Adnan Hodzic (2,002) as the school’s leading scorer in the NCAA Division I era, which began with the 2001-02 season. “I struggled my freshman year, and I didn’t think I’d be at this point when I got here,” Mathews. “I knew I had to work hard, and I did. I’ve got great coaches and teammates that have helped me along the way.” Read Russell Vannozzi’s full recap of the game here. Photos by Erin Franklin « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...

Lipscomb awarded over 400 diplomas at its 2018 December commencement in Allen Arena on Saturday afternoon. Three of these degrees awarded were to students completing the online degree program for the first time in university history. President Randy Lowry gave the charge to the students, offering his perspective on how the graduates are leaving armed with new knowledge and experience, as “products” of the university. “You came four or five or six years ago as a consumer, having looked, perhaps all over Nashville…maybe all over the country, for the college that you would call home,” Lowry said. “…The reality is you had many choices as a consumer, but something caught your attention about this community. One of the amazing things that has happened, perhaps not as profound as you will someday appreciate it, is that you came as a consumer, but you leave as our product.” Read the full story about commencement here. « ‹ 1 of 3 › »...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – When Jordan Nwora scored Louisville’s first 11 points on Tuesday, it appeared it might be a long night for the Lipscomb men’s basketball team. But after making some defensive adjustments, the Bisons gave the Cardinals all they could handle in what was nearly a massive upset. However, a Kenny Cooper turnover with 1:03 left was followed by a fadeaway jumper from Louisville’s Christen Cunningham, giving the Cardinals a narrow, 72-68 victory at the KFC Yum! Center. Lipscomb guard Garrison Mathews led the Bisons with 20 points after producing a combined 10 in his last two outings against Belmont and Navy. The senior said he hopes the Louisville experience will help prepare the Bisons for March basketball. Read Russell Vannozzi’s full recap of the game here. Photos by Erin Franklin « ‹ 1 of 3 ›...
