Belmont University men’s basketball led most of the second half but dropped a hard-fought 73-68 decision at Clemson Tuesday night in the 2014 Postseason NIT quarterfinal round.
Often times two numbers on a scoreboard fail to paint a complete picture. And that would be the case on this night, in front of a boisterous Littlejohn Coliseum crowd.
After inspired victories over Horizon League Champion Green Bay and Northeast Conference Champion Robert Morris, Belmont entered the evening one win away from joining an exclusive list of non-power conference programs ever to reach the NIT Final Four at famed Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Belmont finishes the season 26-10.
