Lipscomb University redshirt sophomore Ike Buxton of Ketchum was named ASUN Conference “Pitcher of the Week” on April 11 for his work on behalf of the NCAA Division I Bisons in Nashville, Tennessee.

Buxton, a right-handed pitcher, threw six shutout innings, allowed two singles and whiffed a season-high seven batters to lead Lipscomb (21-15, 10-5 ASUN) to a 7-3 home conference win over ASUN West Division leader Eastern Kentucky (21-13, 9-6). He also made impressive defensive plays during his effort at Ken Dugan Field.

In his next start on April 16 in Florence, Alabama, Buxton allowed just two earned runs and struck out six batters, helping Lipscomb to its 10th consecutive ASUN league win by a 10-7 score in 10 innings over Northern Alabama (8-25, 2-13).
