CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – After dropping only its second Ohio Valley Conference game in the past three seasons, the Belmont women's basketball team has the chance to close out the 2018-19 regular season with some momentum as the Bruins travel to face Southeast Missouri on Saturday.
The regular-season finale tips off at 4:30 p.m. from SEMO's Show Me Center. The game is available to watch online with ESPN+ or the Watch ESPN app and an audio stream is available through the Bruin Sports Network.
Belmont saw its 14-game win streak snapped on Thursday at the hands of UT Martin, a loss that drops the Bruins to 22-6 on the season with a 15-2 mark in OVC games. That's good enough to lock up the No. 1 seed to the upcoming OVC Tournament though.
SEMO (13-15, 8-9 OVC) meanwhile is battling for its postseason life. The Redhawks are among four teams tied for fifth in the OVC standings headed into the final regular-season game. Only three of them will advance to the eight-team OVC Tournament bracket.
The OVC Tournament begins March 6 in Evansville, Ind. The Bruins will face the No. 8 seed in the first round at 1 p.m. next Wednesday, which could be a rematch with SEMO should enough dominoes fall around the conference on Saturday.
