Lipscomb, Belmont to continue basketball series

NASHVILLE – They will be in two different conferences next season, but they still share the same boulevard.

Lipscomb University remains in the Atlantic Sun Conference, but Belmont shifts to the Ohio Valley Conference beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year. But that doesn’t mean the basketball rivalry between the two schools, known as the “Battle of the Boulevard” is over.

Today both schools are announcing that the rivalry will remain intact with Lipscomb hosting the first meeting on Friday, Nov. 9.  It will be the regular season opener for both teams.

The rematch is Tuesday, Dec. 4, at Belmont.

“It is a good thing for both teams and for both universities to continue playing,” Lipscomb Coach Scott Sanderson said. “There is so much attention put on both of those games every year.

“The biggest difference is the games will be played in November and December instead of January and February. We will play the first game of the season here at Allen Arena. It will be a great atmosphere for both programs and both programs will benefit from it.”

Ticket information will be available in early fall.
