Bellarmine Knights 1 Game Away From D-II National Title Game
Louisville’s Bellarmine Knights are one victory away from a return appearance in the men’s NCAA Division II national title game.
Bellarmine takes on Florida Southern tonight at 9:30 in the tournament semifinals in Evansville. The other semifinal pits Tarleton State against Indiana (Pennsylvania).
The Knights captured the NCAA title in 2011.
In Cleveland tonight, the Kentucky Wildcats return to action in regional play in the men’s Division 1 NCAA Tournament. The top-seeded Wildcats face West Virginia, with the winner advancing to the Elite Eight. Tipoff is at 9:45 p.m.
The Louisville Cardinals are preparing for their NCAA matchup against North Carolina State tomorrow night in Syracuse.
The Wolfpack won the last meeting with coach Rick Pitino’s Cards in Louisville, and upset top-seeded Villanova to advance to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen.
“I’m probably more excited now than I’ve ever been in an NCAA tournament because it gets more and more exciting every year … and there’s so many, it’s almost cruel sometimes the path it takes," Pitino said.
In the women’s NCAA tournament, Louisville resumes play Saturday against Dayton.
