What to Know

After four games on the road, the Belmont Bruins are heading back home. The Bruins and the UT Martin Skyhawks will face off in an Ohio Valley battle at 3 p.m. ET Saturday at Curb Event Center. Belmont might have UT Martin circled on their calendar as an easy win since they are a perfect 9-0 since January of 2016.

Belmont beat the Austin Peay Governors 75-67 on Thursday.

Meanwhile, UT Martin was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Thursday as they fell 58-53 to the Eastern Illinois Panthers. This was hardly the result UT Martin or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 12.5 points over EIU heading into this contest.

Belmont's victory lifted them to 16-5 while UT Martin's loss dropped them down to 7-14. We'll see if the Bruins can repeat their recent success or if the Skyhawks bounce back and reverse their fortune.
