Freshmen First on the Floor to Support Bruins

Belmont University honored its freshmen class during the third annual First on the Floor on Mon., Nov. 28 at the Curb Event Center. A Belmont tradition, First on the Floor gives freshmen the opportunity to line the court and kickoff the men’s basketball season.

About 500 freshmen participated in the event, which included food, face painting and a chance for them to learn Belmont cheers before Belmont defeated Trevecca 86-61. The Bruins and Trojans, former NAIA rivals prior to Belmont’s move to NCAA Division I, had not met since January 1997.

Belmont has now won 17 consecutive home games dating back to the 2009-10 season.

Belmont (3-2) returns to action Thurs., Dec. 1 against Kennesaw State. Tip-off is set for 7:15 p.m. CT at the Curb Event Center.
