The Tennessean, writing about the first men’s basketball game at Belmont’s new Curb Event Center, tonight:
The CEC has a completely different feel than Striplin, an old barn where the fans were practically on top of the players. The new on-campus facility features state-of-the-art amenities, private suites, cherry-stained wood, a seven-story parking garage and, oh yeah, a pretty nice basketball court. ”It’s as nice as any arena in the country,” Bruins Coach Rick Byrd said. ”It’s first class in every way, and we’re looking forward to showing it to people who haven’t seen it yet because it’s something to really be proud of.”
You can read the whole story here. There’s also an online “slide show” of photos from the CEC and the adjacent Beaman Student Life Center.
The Nashville City Paper has a preview of the game between the Belmont Bruins and the Vanderbilt Commodores.
