Monday, February 03, 2014

MACON, Ga. – After leading the Lipscomb men’s basketball team to a key conference road sweep of Jacksonville and North Florida, redshirt-freshman guard J.C. Hampton has been named the Atlantic Sun Conference Newcomer of the Week, as announced on Monday.

Hampton played a key role in the Bisons pair of wins scoring 15 points in each contest.  The Gainesville, Ga. native capped off the weekend by hitting the game-winning shot against North Florida on Saturday with 45 seconds remaining on the clock.

Along with his efforts on the scoreboard, Hampton was active all over the floor notching four rebounds, four assists and two steals against Jacksonville before grabbing four rebounds and collecting three steals against the Ospreys.

The Bisons continue A-Sun action on Thursday hosting USC Upstate at 6 p.m. at Allen Arena.  The contest is set to air on 94.9 Game 2 in the Nashville area and around the country on ESPN3.
