Following a similar script to Thursday's win over Wayne State, the Knights (2-0) faced a slim halftime deficit before slowly taking control in the second half, extending the lead to as many as 14 before settling for the seven-point victory margin.
One of the critical moments of the game came with about 11 minutes remaining. With the score tied at 37, Bellarmine hauled in three offensive rebounds to keep the possession alive then Hall drained a 3-pointer to start a 9-0 run that gave the Knights the lead for good.
Grand Valley (1-1) was paced by Tyrone Lee and Ryan Majerle with 12 points apiece. Basketball fans are probably familiar with the Majerle name as Ryan's uncle Dan Marjerle enjoyed a 14-year career in the NBA.
