Belmont has more in common with Butler then the Letter B as the first letter in their school’s name.
How far can they go as a Cinderella Team? When will their midnight turn that carriage into a roundball pumpkin?
This is their 5th appearance in the big dance in the last 7 years and they are hungry for their first post season tournament win.
Belmont won the Atlantic Suns Conference Tournament and finished in first place in their regular season with a 16-2 record 3 games ahead of the next team in the loss column at 5.
That is more than Syracuse, Kentucky and North Carolina Did.
The rely heavily on the 3 as they averaged just under 9 made 3’s per game. They averaged 81.5 ppg in conference play. They shot 48% from the floor and also have a good inside game.
They lost to Duke at Duke in the first game of the season by ONE POINT 77-76.
Georgetown has struggled the past 2 seasons in the big dance and maybe it could be 3 strikes and they are out again if the Belmont team gets hot from the perimeter.
