In 2011, the the Bellarmine Knights men’s basketball team won the school’s first national championship in any sport. This year, the Knights are back in the NCAA Division II Elite Eight (March 21-24, 2012) to defend their title. The tournament takes place March 21-25, 2012.
The Elite Eight is in Highland Heights, Ky. — just 103 miles from Bellarmine’s campus — in the 10,000-seat Bank of Kentucky Center. We’re expecting such a huge turnout that we’re calling the arena “Knights Hall North.”
Follow the experience on this blog, with stories, photos and video. You can — and probably should — also follow us on Facebook (University | Athletics), Twitter (BU Elite Eight Experience | Athletics) or YouTube.
