For the second year in a row, the Lipscomb men's basketball team is headed to the ASUN Championship Final after the Bisons (25-6) beat NJIT 78-55 on Thursday night in the ASUN semifinals in Allen Arena.
All-ASUN Freshman Ahsan Asadullah (203-C) was menace on the defensive end for Lipscomb, grabbing a career-high 10 boards, notching a career-high four steals, and forcing a number of key turnovers.

'Ahsan, what an unbelievable contribution he made tonight just being active,' Lipscomb Head Coach Casey Alexander said. 'He runs down a steal in transition, he gets hands on balls in half court, he keeps balls alive on offensive rebounds and played with some energy.

'It gave our team a lift and our guys love seeing him make those kinds of contributions and playing with passion. It is helpful to our team.'

Lipscomb will host No. 2 Liberty in the ASUN Final on Sunday at 3 p.m. in a game televised on ESPN. The winner will earn the league's automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.

'Sunday will be the biggest game for the program since the Lipscomb-Belmont game that sold out in Memorial Gym. It's a big day for our campus, our program and everybody that cares about our school. I am happy our players have put themselves in a position to be here and enjoy the moment."

Hansen with 17
Romani Hansen (203-F) had 17 points as Savannah State (11-19, 8-8 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) narrowly beat South Carolina State 90-87 on Thursday night. After falling behind 49-44 at halftime, Savannah State outscored South Carolina State 46-38 in the second half to earn the victory. The Tigers improved to 2-0 against the Bulldogs for the season. Savannah State defeated South Carolina State 92-88 on Jan. 26.
Next up, Sav State will travel to Norfolk, Va. to compete in the 2019 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament at the Scope Arena on March 11-16. Sav State opens versus Delaware State at 7pm on Monday March 11th. The Tigers will be leaving D1 after this season to go to D2. It's their last MEAC tourney for the foreseeable future, and crashing the party would be the best way to go out.

Kwame McBean (203-F) had seven points and nine rebounds, but the University of Arkansas at Monticello (16-13) trailed the entire game Thursday in a 76-59 loss to Southeastern Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals of the Great American Conference Tournament in Bartlesville, Okla.

Winner of the Region 10 tournament receives the District XIV automatic bid to the National Tournament. Regular Season champion Pitt has clinched District XV title, if Pitt wins the tournament the tournament runner-up will be District XV champion.
