NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Garrison Matthews knocked down five 3-pointers and scored 28 points as Lipscomb picked up its 10th win of the season by pummeling cross-down rival and NAIA-member Fisk, 99-53 on Wednesday night.

Overall the Bisons hit on 16 of the 45 3-pointers they launched (35.6 percent) and were 32 of 69 from the field overall (46.4 percent). They held a substantial 62-36 lead on the boards.
Rose and Aaron Korn each knocked down four 3s and contributed 15 and 14 points, respectively. Eli Pepper and Rob Marberry grabbed 13 and 12 rebounds, respectively.
Joshua Madison had 12 points for Fisk.
