Seniors Take the Floor One Last Time…

bball Five Belmont Seniors Headline at the 2nd Music City All-Star Classic

Think you have missed your last chance to see Alex Renfroe flash across the court, or to watch Andy Wicke sink it from downtown? Luckily for us, Shane Dansby, Matthew Dotson,  Henry Harris,  Alex Renfroe, and Andy Wicke will play one final time in the Curb Event Center, Saturday, April 18  at 6 p.m.

Aside from a chance to see Belmont seniors in their final college game, those who come will also have the chance to see Belmont play along side and against college basketball stars from across the state. Three ETSU players, including Kevin Tiggs, will be playing on the other side of the ball against the five Bruins who haven’t seen Tiggs and company since they broke their ten game winning streak in the A-Sun Confrence tournament and kept them out of the big dance.

A slam-dunk and three-point shooting contest will round out the night. Ticketmaster will be selling adult tickets to the event for $10. Students can get theirs for half that.

Belmont Advances Past Mercer

Belmont Plays ETSU to the Wire

An exciting Valentine’s Day come-back over ETSU, coupled with a Jacksonville loss earlier this week, has rocketed Belmont to the top of the Atlantic-Sun Conference.

After struggling in December, the men’s squad is kicking it into overdrive at just the right time of the season. Only a handful of games remain, including a regular season finale at the Curb Event Center against the previous top-team in the conference, Jacksonville.

Belmont is poised to take their fourth A-Sun Championship in as many years, as well as the NCAA Tournament birth that comes with it. Winning the conference out-right will give them the number one seed in Atlantic-Sun Tournament play, which could go a long way towards achieving that goal.
