We have our first underdog road team going and getting a win of the 2020 conference championship season!

The No. 7 Lipscomb Bisons went into Jacksonville and knocked off the No. 2 UNF Ospreys 73-71 to advance to the semifinals of the Atlantic Sun tournament, and they did it with style.

Gotta get a shot off there, UNF. Not great!

Fleming was fantastic for Lipscomb, with 26 points on 12/16 shooting from the field. As a team LU shot 50% from the floor and only had eight turnovers, which is a recipe for winning no matter where you play.

The Bisons (yes, it’s plural) were 7.5 point underdogs on the road, and +295 on the money line. They’ll head to Lynchburg, Virginia to take on the No. 1 Liberty Flames in the final of the Atlantic Sun Championship.
