NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb men’s basketball team is set to travel outside of the “Music City” for the first time this season on Monday night for a nonconference tilt against in-state foe UT-Martin at the Skyhawk Arena in Martin.
“I think we’ll be a better team Monday night than the one that played five days ago against Belmont,” said Lipscomb head coach Casey Alexander. “We’ve used that loss, watched tape closely and had a couple of good practices, so I’m expecting a good game”
The Bisons (2-3) are coming off a 94-64 loss to Belmont on Wednesday night while the Skyhawks (1-5) are coming off a tough 68-64 home loss to Jackson State.
“UT-Martin plays a lot of guys,” said Alexander. “They’re in a situation where they need a win badly having lost two in a row at home. I expect Monday night will be a competitive game, very similar to what we saw at Tennessee State game that went down to the wire, and a game that we can win.”
The 7:30 p.m. tilt is set to air live on 94.9 Game 2 with Jonathan Seamon and Jay Walton on the call. The game will also be broadcast on the OVC Network online.
