NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Needing a win to keep the hopes of hosting an Atlantic Sun Conference first-round playoff game alive, the Lipscomb men’s basketball team is set to host league co-leader Florida Gulf Coast on Thursday night at 6 p.m. at Allen Arena.

With a pair of wins in the final weekend of the regular season, the Bisons (13-14, 8-8 A-Sun), who currently sit in a tie for fifth place, could move up into the coveted fourth spot and host an opening round game of the 2014 Atlantic Sun Men’s Basketball Championship at Allen Arena next Tuesday night.

To do so, Lipscomb will have to slow down the Eagles (19-10, 13-3 A-Sun), who have  won seven of their last eight contests including a 75-61 win over A-Sun co-leader Mercer last Friday night.

The battle between the Bisons and Eagles is set to air on ESPN3 and 94.9 Game 2.  To purchase tickets: logon to http://www.LipscombTickets.com or call 615-966-HERD (4373).
