Jacksonville Makes Final A-Sun Tourney Preparations at Lipscomb & NKU This Week

The Game
The final week of the regular season is upon us as Jacksonville (14-15; 9-7 A-Sun) travels Lipscomb (11-16; 6-10 A-Sun) for an 8:15 pm (EST) contest on Thursday. Currently alone in fourth place in the A-Sun standings, the Dolphins enter the final two games one game back of Stetson for third.

JU will be looking to end a three game slide away from home this week. The Dolphins are coming off a 61-58 loss to ETSU last Saturday. Freshmen Kordario Fleming had a career best 18 points and added six rebounds in the game. After reaching double figures just five times in the first 21 games of the year, Fleming has done so six times in the last eight games  

Lipscomb has won three of its last five following a 70-55 win at Kennesaw State last Saturday. The Bison are 4-3 at home in league play this year.
