Head Men's Basketball Coach Josh Gibson announced the schedule for the 2013-14 Brescia Bearcats season today. "We have a very challenging schedule this year," said Coach Gibson. "We have several players returning, but we also have a lot of new faces that will be learning as we go this season. This schedule will test us early and often, but most importantly, I believe that it will prepare us to face the tough opponents waiting for us in the KIAC."
Brescia will open up on November 1st, playing Ohio Christian in a classic held at Cincinnati Christian University. The Bearcats also face 4 NCAA Division I opponents in 2013-14, squaring off against Murray State, Eastern Kentucky, Belmont, and Western Kentucky. Brescia will begin KIAC play on December 7th with a home game against last season's final opponent, Indiana University East, who defeated the Bearcats by 1 point in a closely contested KIAC tournament first round contest.
After spending much of the first part of the season away from home, the Bearcats will enjoy a stretch of 7 straight home games from January 19th through February 14th. The final regular season game is at Alice Lloyd College on February 23rd, with first round play in the KIAC tournament taking place on February 27th.
