Based on the score, garbage time must have started with the tipoff. Or perhaps a minute in. Regardless, any slew of superlatives could describe the Lipscomb Women’s Basketball team’s crushing of Fisk. How bad? They won by 101 points, 123-22.
Amazing facet #1: they came just a point shy of the Division I women’s record for largest winning margin. That’s held by Grambling, who won 139-37 over Jarvis Christian in 1986. Notice how many more points they allowed though!
Amazing facet #2: Most of the damage was done by Lipscomb’s bench!
Lipscomb's bench scored 86 points, and with 1:49 to go, was six points from the record. They attempted just one shot.Dare I say, amazing. The sentiment all around was that Lipscomb wasn’t trying to run up the score. I guess in the shot clock era you’ve got to actually shoot it each time down the court in a timely fashion. You've really got to feel for the poor women of Fife. This is not a good way to start the season. But I guess as long as they lose by fewer than 100 points, they've improved!
