NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Garrison Mathews and Nathan Moran each scored 18 points and Lipscomb knocked down 15 3-pointers as the Bisons rolled over NJIT, 87-63 on Saturday.

The Bisons built an 11-point lead in the first half, but NJIT cut the lead to eight early in the second half. Josh Williams and Mathews each drilled 3-pointers and Lipscomb maintained a double-digit advantage for the final 15 minutes.
