The 1950’s-themed Full Moon Festival was in full swing last night, as social clubs Delta Omega and Theta Psi raised over $3,400 for N.I.C.E. and to provide awareness for drug and alcohol abuse by promoting “good, clean fun.” And that’s just how the night began with Theta Psi member Luke Shoulders chanting, “Good, clean fun! Good, clean fun!” on stage. The lineup featured several different students performing songs from the 50’s era, and more modern songs with a similar sound. Between songs, Shoulders discussed combating drug and alcohol abuse. Read Carly Reams’ full story here.   « ‹ 1 of 3 ›...

The Lipscomb men’s basketball team had a chance to earn a return trip to the NCAA tournament if it could win Sunday’s ASUN championship game. But Liberty (28-6) stood in the way, and most of the record crowd of 5,607 in Allen Arena went home in disappointment. The Flames used a 45-point outburst in the second half to squeeze past the No. 1 Bisons, 74-68. That gave the No. 2 Flames the ASUN championship and an automatic berth to the Big Dance. “It certainly stings,” Lipscomb coach Casey Alexander said. “It’s a real privilege to be part of a game like that. I loved the Lipscomb people that showed up and made it a great day for us.” Full recap by Russell Vannozzi here. « ‹ 1 of 4 ›...
