A major college basketball upset just happened. Unranked Lipscomb entered tonight's contest against No. 18 TCU as a 12-point underdog, but left with a nine-point win.

The Bisons entered halftime trailing 30-29, but used a strong second half to hand TCU its first loss of the season. Lipscomb moved to 4-1 on the year with the win over the Horned Frogs.

Before tonight's game, the Bisons were 0-13 against top-25 teams since 2006. All of those contests resulted in double-digit losses for the team, but tonight was a different story.

It's a tough loss for the Horned Frogs on their home court.

Lipscomb made its first NCAA Tournament in 2018 after taking down Florida Gulf Coast in the Atlantic Sun Conference title game. Unfortunately, the Bisons met a swift end when they lost to Kansas in the first round of the tournament.
