The Lipscomb Bisons are on a roll, but they haven't exactly played anybody up to this point and they can still be shaky at times defensively. The Bellarmine Knights are one of the bet offensive teams in the country based on their shooting percentages, and they put a bit of a scare into Notre Dame earlier in the season. Bellarmine has shown us more in a limited sample size this season. I'll lay the bucket with the Knights at home.
