Green Bay Preview

GREEN BAY, Wis. - - Belmont University men's basketball returns to game action Saturday at Green Bay.

The Bruins defeated Samford, 99-93, Thursday to complete an undefeated November.

Senior All-America candidate Dylan Windler (Indianapolis, Ind.) led four Bruins in double figures with 31 points and 11 rebounds.

Senior Kevin McClain (Jennings, Fla.) has scored in double figures all six games this season, and is on pace to join Windler in the Belmont NCAA Division I era 1,000 point club.

In scoring 87 or more points in each of their six victories to start the season, Belmont is averaging 21.7 assists per game and ranks among national leaders in offensive efficiency.

Belmont freshmen Mitch Listau (Waunakee) and Derek Sabin (Slinger) hail from the state of Wisconsin; 2014 Belmont graduate Drew Windler is a native of South Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Belmont head coach Rick Byrd and Green Bay head coach Linc Darner have each received national coach of the year honors.

Former Belmont All-American Ian Clark ('13) won an NBA Championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2017. Former Green Bay standout Keifer Sykes played for the Warriors' 2016 NBA Summer League Team.

Belmont was slated to play at Green Bay two seasons ago, but a winter storm, which buried the upper Midwest and Great Lakes in heavy snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures, kept Belmont from getting to Wisconsin.

This marks the third meeting between Belmont and Green Bay. The Bruins won, 86-75, last season at the Curb Event Center. Windler had 20 points and 10 rebounds. 

The Bruins won at Green Bay, 80-65, in the 2014 Postseason NIT. Craig Bradshaw led Belmont with 25 points.

Tip-off is set for 1 p.m. CT. The live play-by-play of Voice of the Bruins Kevin Ingram can be heard on the Bruin Sports Network and the Belmont Gameday app. In-game updates will be available via Twitter @BelmontMBB.
