The last time Bellarmine lost two in a row

My Monday column is online here. Bellarmine’s men’s basketball team has been so dominant in the Great Lakes Valley Conference that their suffering two losses in a row is big news. But, believe it or not, it hasn’t been that long ago when it last occurred. Go back to January 2010 and the Knights lost on the road at Rockhurst, 70-68, and at Drury, 78-74. In fact, they lost two in a row twice that season. In December 2009, they lost 75-62 at USI and 81-65 at Kentucky Wesleyan. Bellarmine went on to finish 23-9 that season, losing 66-61 to Quincy in the NCAA Division II Midwest Regional semifinals at Owensboro, Ky. The next season the Knights won the national title.
