Coach Cross Scores 500th Win in Victory over Alabama

coachcross-hs06-web.jpgThe Belmont women’s basketball rocked its way to its third win of the season on Wednesday night at the Curb Event Center behind the 29 point performance of sophomore Amber Rockwell. The Bruins gained a double digit lead early in the first half and never looked back en route to a 75-58 win over Alabama. The victory became the 500th of Head Coach Tony Cross’s career and snapped a two-game skid. With the win, Cross becomes the first women’s coach in program history to notch 500 wins. Belmont also joins only three other programs in the country that feature 500-win coaches in both men’s and women’s basketball.
