Hello One and All,
Journalism students at Belmont University are being dropped in a vat of multimedia madness once again. They are charged with identifying stories, sources, stakeholders and ways to tell compelling multimedia stories. They may need your help from time to time, so please feel free to chime in.
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.

The Bruins hosted Florida Gulf Coast to a down right dangerous game. Tornado and thunderstorm warnings stop the game short of nine but with enough game played to call it.
Belmont beat Mercer with a buzzer-beater Thursday and won the chance to advance in the Atlantic-Sun Tournament.
After beating the Hilltoppers in Kentucky the day before, Belmont hosted at Shelby Park on Wednesday. Senior Derek Wiley said, “For as long as I can remember, we have always split the series with Western Kentucky.” This year was no different. Watch the full game recap below.
Belmont had a great win on Valentine’s Day against ETSU.
ETSU beat Belmont during their first meeting this year by 30 points, which is also the largest margin of lose for for the Bruins this season. Belmont evened the score, however, with a exciting win that took four ties and 12 lead changes along the way.

Belmont baseball began its 2009 season at 2 p.m. today in the first game of a double-header against Illinois State. Illinois State, which is traditionally known for solid hitting, with a weaker pitching rotation, should match up pretty evenly against the Bruins, who have similar traits. Although Belmont is being projected as the seventh best team in the Atlantic-Sun, it is important to remember they received the same projections last year and went to survive until the last day of A-Sun tournament play.
