Belmont Making Conference Switch To OVC Look Easy

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Belmont Bruins expect success, and they're not letting a simple thing like changing conferences get in the way of what they're accustomed to doing: Winning.

Belmont went to the NCAA tournament five of the last seven seasons as a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference. Now in its first season in the Ohio Valley Conference, Belmont is once again atop the league standings.

The Bruins (17-4, 8-0) are undefeated in league play, and a tough non-conference schedule featuring a win at Stanford has them with an RPI of No. 14 that is the highest of any men's team in the state of Tennessee.

Senior guard Kerron Johnson says the current Bruins know Belmont's on the upswing and want to keep the program going that way.
