Lipscomb is one game out of first place, and Head Coach Lauren Sumski, has this Bisons team on a four game winning streak headed into Thursday night’s game. 6’2 SO G/F Bella Vinson leads the team offensively, averaging 14.4 ppg, and when you combine her with 6’2 R-SO F Aleah Sorentino (12.9 ppg), it’s a duo the Eagles will have their hands full with in the post. 5’9 SR G Jalyn Holcomb is averaging 13.2 ppg, and we have seen her take over games in the past for Lipscomb when her team wasn’t playing at the high level they have this season. The Eagles realize that all it takes is one loss, and they could lose the #1 seed, since Lipscomb and Liberty are both tied for second place at 11-2. This is the most competitive the ASUN Conference has been in a long time, and it will be intriguing to see who finishes where seedingwise. It’s motivating to see FGCU continue to dominate the ASUN Conference, and close in on another ASUN Conference regular season title.
#25 FGCU is led offensively by TK Morehouse, who is averaging 16.4 ppg, and on her way to another ASUN Conference Player of the Year award, with her outstanding play. FGCU looks to win their seventh game in a row, and head into the ASUN Conference tournament, playing their best brand of basketball. It’s gonna be a great game Thursday night from Alico Arena, and we know Lipscomb will be a great challenge, so we can’t wait to see how Head Coach Karl Smesko game plans vs the Bisons!
