The Brescia men's basketball team traveled to Nashville, TN on Tuesday night to take on the mighty Belmont University Bruins.
Brescia scored the 1st points of the game and then the Bruins jumped out to an 11-6 lead by the first media timeout. A Jermain Langley dunk off a turnover was impressive, but not as impressive as the Belmont's hot shooting as they shot (70.3%) and led 59-31 at the half.
Brescia improved dramatically in the second half and were only outscored 43-37 in the final 20 minutes, thanks to fewer turnovers and a hot shooting Decarlos Collier. "The guys fought so hard in the second half and really put forth the effort we expect of them," said head coach Josh Gibson. Brescia ended up dropping the contest 102-68.
Brescia was led by Collier's 21 points, while Langley had 14 points and 4 assists.
Brescia (5-3) next hosts Centre College on December 5th at 7:00pm in The Den.
