What to Know

After a three-game homestand, the Lipscomb Bisons will be on the road. Lipscomb and the Jacksonville State Gamecocks will face off in an Atlantic Sun battle at 9 p.m. ET Thursday at Pete Mathews Coliseum. The Bisons will be strutting in after a win while Jacksonville State will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Lipscomb made easy work of the Bellarmine Knights on Saturday and carried off a 69-49 victory.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Lipscomb is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The Bisons ended up a good deal behind the Gamecocks when they played when the two teams previously met in February of last year, losing 78-67. Can Lipscomb avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
