Lady Bisons volleyball (15-12; ASUN 8-6) won the first game of the ASUN championship against The University of North Florida (13-19; 5-9).
This marks the 13th consecutive year that Lipscomb has made it to the ASUN semifinals.
The Lady Bisons had a strong opening and never lost their stride, leading each of the sets by more than three points the entire game.
Carlyle Nusbaum, reigning ASUN Player of the Year, delivered 17 out of the 42 kills.
“Offense is something this team knows how to do,” head coach Brandon Rosenthal said. “The team worked like a well-oiled machine with every player executing their positions wonderfully.”
The Lady Bisons total amount of digs was 49, 15 digs higher than North Florida’s 34, and senior Brittany Thomas delivered 11 digs. Lipscomb’s Lady Bisons had a whopping 42 kills as opposed to the University of North Florida Osprey’s 23. The Lady Bison’s hitting percentage for the three sets were .302, .280 and .250, respectively.
“Our energy was great,” Rosenthal said. “I don’t know if there’s necessarily improvements; I think it’s just continuing to execute the gameplan.”
Lipscomb’s next match of the semifinals will be against Kennesaw State on Nov. 17 at 5 p.m.
