Bellarmine Basketball Headed To First NCAA Elite 8

The team fell short of making the elite 8 in 2009. They lost in the regional final in a controversial ending when a tying 3 point shot was waved off and changed to a 2 pointer.

The Knights finished the regular season ranked 2nd in the nation among Division II schools. They will play in the Elite 8 on Wednesday, March 23 in Springfield, Massachusetts.
