Bison basketball: A new year

The hardwood is once again alive as the Lipscomb University Men’s Basketball Team embarks on a new season. With high hopes, formidable talent, and a hunger for success, the team has set their sights on making this season a memorable one.

After falling short to Kennesaw State in last year’s ASUN tournament, the hunger for not only revenge but a championship is fueling this team. The Bisons are currently 6-3, still staying undefeated at home after trouncing The University of Tennessee Chattanooga on November 29th.

Will Pruitt rattled home 22 points while grabbing 16 rebounds in the landslide victory over the Mocs.

However, Pruitt isn’t the only player who’s stepped up. Many players are in their debut year this season.

Rylan Houck, a redshirt sophomore for the Bisons, dropped in 10 points and 4 rebounds in 3 minutes against Tennessee Tech, which was the beginning of the end for the Golden Eagles.

Other guys like sophomore TJ Johnson, freshman Dylan Faulkner, and guard Cody Head have already played pivotal roles in this one-of-a-kind team, each stepping up in a different game this year.

The Bisons fly down south to face off against UCF on December 2nd, which will be another true test as to whether this could be a championship team.

This Bison athletic team is young and looking to bring the ASUN championship trophy back to Allen Arena.
