    JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Cameron Robinson rebounded teammate James Poindexter's missed 3-point attempt and put back the layup with just .1 second remaining to give Lipscomb a 56-54 win over ETSU Saturday in Atlantic Sun Conference play.

    The Bucs (1-4, 0-2) built a lead of as many as 10 points in the first half and held a 29-21 advantage at intermission. However, midway through the second half, they went cold from the field and Lipscomb (2-3, 1-1) took advantage with a 10-2 offensive run to take a 40-38 lead with 11:10 remaining in the game.

    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.

    The Bisons only shot 31 percent from the floor, 20 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and 41 percent from the foul line.

    But the Bucs were equally ineffective on offense shooting 48 percent from the field, 15 percent from the 3-point line and 41.7 percent from the foul line.

    The main edge for Lipscomb came in the paint, where they outrebounded the Bucs 51-34 overall.
