Bellarmine falls to USI 72-69

Southern Indiana's Aaron Nelson grabbed an offensive rebound and hit a put-back basket with six seconds remaining as the 25th-ranked Screaming Eagles held off Bellarmine 72-69 in a Great Lakes Valley Conference game at USI's Physical Activities Building.

The Knights opened up a 13-point first half advantage, then went ice-cold—going without a field goal in the final 5:16 of the first half—as USI fought back to take a 40-39 lead at halftime.  After the break the Screaming Eagles jumped out to a 54-43 advantage.  However, the Knights fought back to take the lead on several occasions, but in the end, USI's 44-29 rebounding advantage was too much for Bellarmine to overcome.

The game concluded both teams regular seasons with USI finishing 21-5, 13-5, GLVC, and Bellarmine ending up 20-6, 12-6 GLVC.
