Win or go home.
It’s the ultimatum given to every team at March Madness, and after a narrow loss to the University of Tennessee Knoxville on Monday night, Belmont is the latest squad to leave the dance floor.
Despite the 70-67 loss to the Lady Vols, Belmont’s presence in the Round of 32 is something to celebrate, marking the second time the team has gotten there in as many years.
The Vision caught every second of the game on camera so that you, loyal Bruins, can relive every moment of the madness.
