The Bellarmine Knights are off to a perfect start in the 2019-20 season. They are the last remaining undefeated team in DII men's basketball and, to no one's surprise, the No. 1 team in every poll and rankings.
DII MEN'S POWER 10: Bellarmine holds at No. 1, Lincoln Memorial rises
The Knights have put themselves to the test early, taking down then-No. 13 Indianapolis by two points on the road, then-No. 20 Southern Indiana by 14 at home and then-No. 18 Missouri-St. Louis by five at home. But there is a lot of work left to do.
Here's what you should know about the remaining schedule:
- Bellarmine has 14 games remaining, seven of which are home at Knights Hall. The Knights are 81-3 in Louisville, Kentucky since the 2014-15 season, including a 67-game record-setting home winning streak.
- Entering the week of Jan. 13, 12 of the 15 remaining teams have a winning record on Bellarmine's slate.
