The Lipscomb Bisons begin a four-game road trip as part of the Cancun Challenge Thursday evening at Illinois.  The game is set to tip at 8 p.m. and will be televised on the Big Ten Network.  The matchup is the first road game for Lipscomb’s seven freshmen.  

The Bisons fell 74-71 at home Sunday to former Atlantic Sun Conference opponent Gardner-Webb.  Lipscomb was led by freshman Zavion Williams with 22 points and six steals.  The Bisons missed eight straight free throws in the second half and were 17-of-28 (60.7 percent) from the charity line.
