Bellarmine University to Face "Most Difficult Schedule" During Scott Daveneport Era

The Bellarmine Knights are gearing up to face what head coach Scott Davenports says is "the most difficult schedule" during his 10 years as head coach.

Here is a release from BU:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Bellarmine University men's basketball team announced its 2014-15 schedule today with the Knights playing 27 regular season games and exhibitions against Cincinnati and Louisville.

As it has the past two years, Bellarmine will open with an exhibition at Cincinnati with this year's game scheduled for Monday, Nov. 3. Game time is yet to be determined. Next, the Knights will take the short road trip to the KFC YUM! Center to face the Louisville Cardinals on Sunday, Nov. 9.

Bellarmine opens the regular season on the road with a pair of games in Michigan, facing Northwood and Saginaw Valley on Nov. 14 and 15, respectively, as part of the GLIAC/GLVC Challenge. Both games will be played at Saginaw Valley State's campus.

The Knights open at home on Nov. 23 when they welcome perennial GLIAC powerhouse Findlay for a 3 p.m. matchup. Following trips to Memphis and Evansville to play Christian Brothers and in USI's Bill Joergenson Memorial Classic, Bellarmine returns home to host Ohio Valley and Florida Southern on Dec. 12 and 13. The final game before the NCAA-mandated winter break will be a Dec. 20 home contest against Fairmont State.

The Great Lakes Valley Conference portion of the schedule begins Jan. 2 with a home contest against Rockhurst. Other home GLVC games include: William Jewell, Lewis, Wisconsin-Parkside, Truman State, Quincy, St. Joseph's, Indianapolis and Southern Indiana.

"This is definitely the most difficult schedule in my ten years at Bellarmine," said Bellarmine Coach Scott Davenport, "starting with two tremendous exhibitions at Cincinnati and at Louisville, then three straight games against outstanding GLIAC teams Northwood, at Saginaw Valley and our home opener with Findlay. We must travel to Christian Brothers, who lost in their conference tournament final. We will host Florida Southern, an NCAA No. 1 seed, and Fairmont State, who lost to NCAA National Runner-up West Liberty in their conference semifinals — the same West Liberty team they defeated 93-81 in the regular season."
