Lipscomb (11-3, 7-0 A-Sun) has swept its last eight games as the Bisons are perfect in conference. The Bisons are led by Jake Pease and Alex Kelly. Pease is first in the conference averaging 11.77 assists per set, while Kelly is first in the A-Sun in kills per set posting an average of 4.45 per set.
