The Game

Lipscomb hosts UT Martin Tuesday at 6:30 in Allen Arena as the Bisons go for their fifth win in six outings.  

This is the first meeting in Nashville between the in-state opponents since the Skyhawks won 99-90 in the then-new Allen Arena on Dec. 7, 2002.  Last year the Bisons won 90-71 in Martin on Nov. 27.  Martin leads the all-time series 12-10.

The Bisons are coming off a 75-52 A-Sun victory against Kennesaw State Saturday propelled by a pair of double-doubles from Justin Glenn (11/15) and Malcolm Smith (16/12).     The duo combines for 22 ppg and 17.3 rpg over the last three games.
