NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Fans gathered in Nashville to cheer on the Belmont Bruins as they played in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Bruins took on the Maryland Terrapins in Jacksonville, Florida Thursday. And students and fans cheered them on from a packed room on campus.

It was a tight game the entire 40 mintes, but ultimately Maryland won 77-79.

Belmont men's basketball has won 17 NCAA Division I Conference Titles since 2006. Only Kansas and Gonzaga have won more conference championships over that span.
