Boys Varsity Basketball

The boys basketball program at Lipscomb Academy has a long tradition of basketball teams that compete at a high level while also being great representatives of our school. Our players are known for their hard work, enthusiasm, and team spirit on and off the court.

The Mustang basketball program exists to serve its student-athletes in all areas of their lives. The goal is for all of our players to leave as better basketball players and members of the community by teaching them life lessons through basketball. Our players are trained physically, mentally, and spiritually by some of the best coaches around creating a competitive and exciting environment each day. Our teams have won many games and championships throughout the years but what makes Mustang basketball special are the lifelong memories and friendships our student-athletes create along the way.

Human Performance Weight Room

With the renovation of the human performance weight room located at the Upper School, the enhanced performance center is accessible now for the entire student body. The renovations have expedited our ability to install methodologies based around teaching movement, core strength and proper lifting techniques. Sixteen racks, numerous dumbbell and kettlebell racks and increased space give the athletics program the necessary tools to teach effectively.
