Lipscomb Bisons 

Lipscomb had an up-and-down run over their first 22 games, going 13-9 overall. Since then the Bisons are on a 4-3 stretch with wins over Queens NC, Liberty, Central Arkansas and Jacksonville alongside losses to Kennesaw State, North Alabama and North Florida. 

On Saturday versus Jacksonville, the Bisons went into the break with a 39-31 deficit. Lipscomb woke up in the second half on a 31-20 stretch and won 62-59. Matt Schner led the team with 15 points and three rebounds in 30 minutes of work. 

FGCU Eagles

Over on the Florida Gulf Coast side, they managed a slightly better 14-8 run in their first 22 games. The Eagles are just 2-5 since then, however. The losses in that span came versus Liberty, Central Arkansas, North Alabama and Stetson (twice). 

In the Stetson rematch on Saturday, Florida Gulf Coast was behind 50-45 at the break. The Eagles managed another 39 points from there but still lost 88-84. Isaiah Thompson put up 19 points with seven assists to lead the team.


I’ll probably stay with Lipscomb. This should be a pretty good matchup if both teams play well, though. The Bisons are 4-2 in their last six games, and they’ve scored 69 or more points in four of the last five. As for Florida Gulf Coast, they’ve got 68 or more points in five of their last six. The Eagles are also giving up quite a bit of scoring on the other side however, so Lipscomb should have plenty of opportunities for their offense here. I like a fairly close game the whole way, with the Bisons eking out a cover in the end.
