Perennial major conference powers and area rivals highlight Belmont University’s men’s basketball schedule for the upcoming 2008-09 season. The three-time defending Atlantic Sun Conference champions will play no fewer than nine games against teams from the state of Tennessee during the regular season, with four contests at the Curb Event Center.
In addition, one season after playing the toughest regular season schedule under Head Coach Tony Cross, the Belmont women’s basketball team is poised to rebuild on its legacy of excellence and vie for a return to the NCAA Tournament. This year, the Bruins’ slate features match-ups with several intrastate rivals and appearances in two tournaments that should give the team confidence heading into the always competitive Atlantic Sun.
