Lipscomb Bisons Basketball TicketsOver the past two seasons, Lipscomb has served notice that they are battling for basketball supremacy in Nashville with the Belmont Bruins. After watching their intracity rival grab hoops glory, Lipscomb has not made two postseason appearances of their own with a racehorse style of play that puts the points on the board in a hurry. Lipscomb now has to replace some graduated firepower and a departed head coach, but the school has its first taste of consistent winning basketball after five non-winning seasons in a row. Currently, the Bisons are making their way with a young roster that is gaining experience. The Bisons play in the Atlantic Sun Conference, having joined the conference after playing their first year in Division I as an independent school back in 2002.

Lipscomb and the Belmont Bruins play annually in the "Battle of the Boulevard" for local bragging rights, and the contests are intense. The rivalry took on a new meaning in 2019 when Belmont hired away Lipscomb's head coach. In the Atlantic Sun Conference, Lipscomb has had to battle the Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles for conference supremacy.
Who is the coach of the Lipscomb Bisons?Lenny Acuff took over in 2019 as the head coach of the Bisons. Acuff was a longtime coach of Alabama-Huntsville and led them to many Division II Tournaments. Casey Alexander had ushered in an era of prosperity for Lipscomb, but local rival Belmont hired him away after the 2019 season.
Where do the Lipscomb Bisons play their home games?The Bisons play in Allen Arena. This fieldhouse was built in 2001 and seats just over 5,000 for basketball. When the Bisons are playing conference tournament home games, Allen Arena can get full, making for loud, intense matches that bring excitement to the court.
What is the Lipscomb Bisons' postseason record?Lipscomb made its initial appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2018 after upsetting Florida Gulf Coast in the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. The Bisons drew the University of North Carolina Tar Heels as the 15 seed and lost their only NCAA Tournament game. The team had much more success in 2019 when it played in its first National Invitation Tournament. The Bisons made it all the way to the finals, defeating North Carolina State and Wichita State en route to the championship before losing to Texas in the final game.
What is the Lipscomb Bisons' style of play?The Bisons play an up-tempo style of basketball that takes them up and down the court with speed. Lipscomb capitalizes on accuracy from the three-point range. In 2018-19, the Bisons were No. 9 in the entire country, scoring an average of 83 points per game. For the past three years, they have been high among the national leaders in terms of scoring points per game.
Have the Lipscomb Bisons had any players on an NBA roster?They haven't yet, but that could change at any moment with high-performance, promising players stepping up each season. Lipscomb did have two players that were drafted in 1971 and 1986, respectively, but neither John Kimbrell nor Ron Rippetoe ever appeared in game action. Garrison Matthews was signed by the Washington Wizards as an undrafted free agent after winning the Atlantic Sun Conference player of the year award in 2019. He is currently playing for the Capital City Go-Go which is the Wizards' G-League affiliate.
