Bellarmine releases 2013-14 men's basketball schedule

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.—The Bellarmine University men's basketball team released its 2013-14 schedule today, and it features 26 regular season games—eight against 2013 NCAA tournament teams—and one exhibition.  The Knights will split their games evenly with 13 games at home and 13 on the road.

Coach Scott Davenport and the Knights open on Nov. 2 with an exhibition at Cincinnati that is scheduled to tip at 2 p.m. in the Fifth Third Arena.  The regular season and home opener comes on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. with a tilt against Division III opponent Marian University out of Indianapolis. 

Other non-conference action for the Knights includes home games with 2013 NCAA tourney competitor Christian Brothers University on Nov. 23 and a Dec. 9 contest in Knights Hall against West Virginia Tech.  Bellarmine will go on the road to face another NCAA tourney competitor Fairmont State on Dec. 19. 

The Knights also will compete in two "classics." They will travel to Evansville, Ind., to compete in the Bill Joergens Memorial Classic on Nov. 29 and 30, when they will play IU-Southeast and King College respectively.  Bellarmine will host a classic of its own on Dec. 13 and 14, facing off against Ohio Valley University and Virginia Union.

Great Lakes Valley Conference play will open on Jan. 3 with a road game at William Jewell.  This year in league play, the GLVC has moved to a "pod" system in which teams play each member of their own 4-team pod twice and play all of the remaining teams just once.  Bellarmine's pod includes Southern Indiana, Indianapolis and St. Joseph's.

Other changes in the GLVC for 2013-14 include the departure of Kentucky Wesleyan and the inclusion of Truman State, which will become a member of the West Division.  Illinois-Springfield will shift to the East.  Bellarmine also will get a new travel partner this year as the Knights and Screaming Eagles of USI will have the same road trips this season.

Bellarmine opens its home GLVC season with defending national champion Drury on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 8 p.m., followed by a Saturday afternoon game against Missouri S&T.  The Knights stay at home for their next three games, entertaining "podmates" Indianapolis (Jan. 16), St. Joseph's (Jan. 18), and Southern Indiana (Jan. 20).

Other games of note include homecoming on Feb. 1 versus Illinois-Springfield and senior day on Feb. 15 when the Knights welcome Maryville.

After getting a new Knights Hall floor a year ago, Bellarmine has continued to renovate Knights Hall, and fans will notice a dramatic difference in the arena with new mezzanine level seats, new lighting, a new heating and air conditioning system, and a new open ceiling design.
