Since the Bison men’s basketball team won the ASUN tournament on March 4 earning its first berth into the NCAA tournament, Lipscomb University has become the focus of an enormous amount of local and national media.
Lipscomb’s College of Education has a reputation for excellence that was established decades ago as Lipscomb began preparing teachers in the early 1900s.
When the Bisons walked into the player entrance of Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, Thursday morning, the dream of making it to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament finally became very real.
