Lipscomb Bisons Basketball History

Lipscomb basketball can be traced back to the school’s first team in the 1926-27 season under coach Herschel Priestley.

The Bisons didn’t start keeping tabs on wins and losses until Leo Lipscomb Boles took over the team in 1929 and led them to a 70-19 record. The Bisons then had their share of ups and downs that accompany the majority of basketball teams.

Lipscomb was content to compete in smaller conferences in the NAIA and the basketball program never really amounted to much. That all changed when Don Meyer became the team’s 12th head coach in 1975.

Under Meyer, the team turned into an NAIA powerhouse that made 13 NAIA Tournament appearances and won the NAIA championship in 1986.

Back to the NAIA Tournament

Meyer left after the 1998-99 season and was replaced by Scott Sanderson, who took the Bisons back to the NAIA Tournament in his first NCAA season, reaching the quarterfinals.

The school announced a move to Division I and began the transition period as a member of the ASUN. After a 20-win season in 2005-06, Lipscomb received an invitation to compete in the NIT.

Sanderson, the son of former Alabama coach Wimp Sanderson, left the team after the 2013 season to take over for his brother at Faulkner University. Casey Alexander became the team’s coach in 2013-14 and led the team to its first NCAA Tournament berth after winning the 2018 ASUN conference tournament.

The following season, Lipscomb reached the finals of the NIT, where it lost to Texas. Alexander moved two miles down the road to Belmont, where he graduated, and Lennie Acuff took over as head coach in 2019-20.
