Bellarmine University Releases 2015-16 Basketball Schedule

Bellarmine University has revealed their men's basketball schedule for the 2015-16 season.

The Knights will officially release their exhibition schedule at a later date, but it is already known that they will travel to Louisville on November 1.

The schedule also includes a conference game against McKendree in December that will be shown live on ESPN3.

Here's a release from BU:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.—The Bellarmine University men's basketball team announced its 2015-16 regular season schedule today with the Knights playing 27 regular season games including a nationally distributed game live from Knights Hall on Dec. 5 against McKendree. Bellarmine's 2015-16 exhibition schedule will be announced at a later date.

Again this season, Coach Scott Davenport and his staff have assembled a rigorous schedule that includes non-conference games against traditional DII powerhouses Findlay, Lincoln Memorial and Midwestern State along with the always-challenging Great Lakes Valley Conference slate.

Bellarmine opens the regular season by hosting Northwood and Saginaw Valley in the GLIAC-GLVC Challenge on Nov. 14 and 15. The following weekend, the Knights remain home to welcome Christian Brothers in a game scheduled to tip at 7 p.m.

The first road game will be a stiff challenge as Bellarmine visits Croy Gymnasium to take on the Findlay Oilers on Tuesday, Nov. 24. The Knights will stay on the road for their next two games with their annual appearance in the University of Southern Indiana's Bill Joergens Memorial Classic where they will tangle with Midwestern State and Ohio Valley on Nov. 27 and 28 respectively.

Bellarmine returns home on Dec. 3 when it will open GLVC play with a Thursday night game against Illinois Springfield. Two days later the Knights welcome both McKendree and ESPN3 in a 3:15 p.m. game as Bellarmine reaps the benefit of a nationally distributed game earned by winning the NCAA's Division II Award of Excellence last season.

The Knights' final action before the NCAA-mandated winter break comes when they host St. Catharine College and Shaw University on Dec. 11 and 12 in the Holiday Inn Express Classic.

Bellarmine opens post-winter break action with its final non-conference game of the year on Jan. 2 as the Railsplitters of Lincoln Memorial visit Knights Hall in a game that will feature teams that combined to win 61 games last season.
