APSU basketball sophomore Jared Savage is transferring to Lipscomb University as announced by Lipscomb Head Coach Casey Alexander.
Savage spent two seasons on Dave Loos Court for the Govs. Savage has been a consistent name in the Govs’ lineup, starting 28 games while averaging 31 minutes. He was effective from behind the arc with 57 3-pointers and a 35.8 percent efficiency on 3-point attempts. As a freshman, Savage also served as a key figure in APSU’s Ohio Valley Championship run in 2016.
Savage came to APSU as legacy, being the son of former Gov Jermaine Savage. Jermaine Savage was a key piece to former coach Dave Loos’s 1996 NCAA Tournament team.
