North Carolina fans are frantically googling Lipscomb after facing unexpected competition in the first round of March Madness

Jared C. Tilton/Getty ImagesLipscomb was a mystery to some when they faced off against North Carolina in the first round of March Madness.
  • North Carolina fans were unsure what to think as the start of their game against Lipscomb was tighter than expected.
  • Fans frantically wondered “Where is Lipscomb?” before the Tar Heels regained control of the game late in the first half.
  • The Lipscomb Bisons are from Nashville, Tennessee, and made the tournament after winning the Atlantic Sun Conference.

As No. 15 Lipscomb played No. 2 North Carolina to virtually a standstill through the first half of their opening game of the NCAA Tournament, Tar Heels fans had one lingering question on their minds – Where is Lipscomb?

Answer: Lipscomb is in Nashville, Tennessee.

The school entered the game against the Tar Heels as 20-point underdogs, so it was a shock to see the game so tight for the early goings of the game. But North Carolina ended the first half on a 12-1 run to pull away a bit, assuaging much of the fear of the Tar Heel faithful.
