ETSU battled back to tie the game late thanks to a 3-pointer and foul shot from Travis Strong in the final 1:14 of the contest. But Lipscomb was able to make the play with Robinson’s lay up at the buzzer.
Lipscomb’s Eddie Ard finished with 17 points while Poindexter posted 14. For ETSU, Strong scored 15 points while Dillion Sneed ended with a double-double courtesy of 12 points and 10 rebounds. Tim Smith also scored 10 points.
