Belmont wins the Atlantic Sun Tournament, headed to the 2012 NCAA Tournament

In their last year in the Atlantic Sun Conference before they head to the Ohio Valley Conference, the Belmont Bruins went out in style as they defeated the underdog Eagles of Florida Gulf Coast in the Atlantic Sun Tournament Championship, 83-69 this evening in Macon, Georgia. The Bruins, who will be making their fifth NCAA tournament berth of all time (and all since 2006), were led by a terrific performance by junior guard Kerron Johnson, who had 14 points, 11 boards and five assists and they were led in scoring by fellow junior guard Ian Clark, who had 16 points.

The Bruins will find out where they out headed for March Madness 2012 on Selection Sunday in eight days.
