Shane Dansby scored 16 points to help send Belmont to its third straight NCAA tournament with a 79-61 victory over Jacksonville, becoming the first team in league history to win three consecutive Atlantic Sun tournament titles.
And here's a tip if you're looking for an upset in your NCAA bracket:
“Belmont, their whole team shoots 3s. I’m not used to having to fight through flare screens, down screens,” Jacksonville forward Marcus Allen said. “Belmont can really shoot 3s, all 13 or 14 of them.”
The third consecutive conference championship for the Bruins only adds to what has been a stellar season for the state of Tennessee.
Memphis, Vanderbilt and Tennessee — all ranked in the Top 25 — will likely join the Bruins in the NCAA Tournament regardless of the outcome in their league tournaments. Along with Austin Peay’s 82-64 victory over Tennessee State in the Ohio Valley Conference championship, at least five schools from the Volunteer State are headed to the Big Dance.
