NASHVILLE, Tenn. - - Belmont University Athletics announced Thursday scheduled dates for men's basketball games against Lipscomb during the 2012-13 season.

The Bruins will play at Lipscomb Friday, Nov. 9, with the Bisons returning to the Curb Event Center Tuesday, Dec. 4.

Belmont and Lipscomb have played 130 times since the series' inception in 1953, 19 as Atlantic Sun Conference foes. With Belmont set to join the Ohio Valley Conference next season, the 2012-13 editions will mark the first non-conference contests of the NCAA Division I era.
