MT students rushed the Murphy Center court when the Blue Raiders pulled out a 65-62 win over Belmont exactly one year ago today. Belmont coach Rick Byrd called the on-court celebration a compliment to his program.
Immediate things to take away from that game...they have a strong RPI and are a good team that will win a lot of games. We played really good D most of the game. If we hit our normal shots and play offense like normal we win that game. It is a tough loss to swallow because I hate Belmont but not as bad of a loss as we might think. Don't knee jerk react at this one.
That's my reaction, too. Unfortunately, many of our missed shots were right at the rim. That's not the only reason we lost, though. There was absolutely no energy for the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half and that is inexcusable.
