Ahsan Asadullah (203-C) and the Lipscomb men's basketball team needed a second-half comeback to keep its season alive Tuesday at Davidson. The script on Saturday in Greensboro, North Carolina was much different.

The Bisons turned a one-point deficit late in the first half into a convincing 86-69 beat down of top-seeded UNCG in second-round action of the NIT at the Greensboro Coliseum.

With the win Lipscomb advances to the quarterfinals of the NIT and will face the winner of No. 2 NC State and No. 6 Harvard next week for the right to take a trip to New York City.

Asadullah, a freshman, fell short of a double-double with seven points and eight boards. He reeled in a team-high three offensive rebounds.

Lipscomb advances to the quarterfinals where it will take on the winner of Sunday's NC State and Harvard matchup. The game will be played on Wednesday, March 27 at a time and location yet to be determined.

If NC State wins, the Bisons will make a third trip to North Carolina. If Harvard pulls the upset, the Bisons will host in Allen Arena.

NBA Draft Combine Notebook: Nicolas Claxton Displays Versatility - 6 days ago
CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league. As a whole, five-on-five play was heavily watered down this year as a vast majority of potential first-round picks opted not to play, aiming to protect their draft stock. Regardless, there were a number of intriguing players who benefited this week. There were also some guys who struggled. Some of the more noteworthy perform...   [read more]
