Casey Alexander notched his 100th victory as Lipscomb’s basketball coach Sunday.

And it was not business as usual. The Bisons were without two starters but won 88-65 at Stetson, where Alexander coached for two seasons before he came to Lipscomb.

In five-plus seasons, he is 100-80 with the Bisons. He was 24-36 at Stetson.

“It just means that we’ve had a good six years at a place we love coaching,” Alexander said via the school’s athletics website. “The continuity in the staff has been very important to that and we’ve had a lot of good players and consistency.

“It’s a good place to be.”

Scott Sanderson has been the only other coach during the program’s NCAA era. He went 153-149 in 10 seasons.

With the latest victory, Lipscomb improved to 7-0 in the Atlantic Sun Conference (16-4 overall) and extended its conference win streak to 15 games, dating back to last season. Only Gonzaga in the West Coast Conference (20 games) has a longer active streak.

That run will be tested Tuesday when the Bisons play at Liberty (18-4, 7-0) in a matchup for sole possession of first place (6 p.m., ESPN+). Every other A-Sun team has at least two losses in conference play.

Note: Alexander played at Brentwood Academy in his high school years, where he helped the Eagles notch two state wins, per Lipscomb’s athletic site.
