Bellarmine Knights Basketball History

The Bellarmine Knights standings have been playing basketball since the 1950-51 season, which coincides with the opening of the school on Oct. 3, 1950. Bellarmine joined the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 1951 and was a member of the KIAC in 1963 when the team earned its first berth in the Division II Tournament.

The Knights were no strangers to the Division II Tournament, earning additional berths in 1965, 1969, 1970, and 1977. Bellarmine joined the Great Lakes Valley Conference when it was formed in 1978 and was a member of the GLVC for its trips to the Division II Tournament in 1982, 1984, 1989, and 1991. The Knights then hit some lean years and were stuck in mediocrity. That all began to change when Scott Davenport took over the program in 2005-06.

Davenport didn’t turn the Knights into winners overnight, but he took a team that had gone 28-54 the previous three NCAA seasons and went 14-14 his first season and 12-15 his second year. The Knights went 17-11 in his third season and then Bellarmine became a Division II juggernaut. The Knights won the Division II national championship in 2011 and qualified for 11 straight NCAA Division II Tournaments between 2009-2019. The only thing that stopped them was the school’s announcement on June 19, 2019, that it had accepted an invitation to join the ASUN for the 2020-21 season and would make the move to Division I.

The Knights went 14-8 in their first season in Division I, including a 10-3 ASUN record. The Knights accepted a bid to play in the CBI after the season. Bellarmine won the ASUN conference tournament in 2021-22 but due to the NCAA transition rules, the Knights are ineligible for NCAA-organized postseason events, such as the Division I Tournament or the NIT.

Bellarmine Knights NCAAB FAQs

Has Bellarmine had any players drafted by the NBA?

The Knights have had two players drafted by NBA teams, although neither one played in a regular season game. Ron Belton was taken in the 11th round of the 1970 draft by the San Diego Rockets. In 1984, Buddy Cox was taken in the ninth round by Phoenix.

Who will succeed coach Ron Davenport as Bellarmine’s head coach?

On May 12, 2022, Bellarmine officially named Dave Davenport, son of coach Ron Davenport, as the team’s “coach-in-waiting,” meaning he will take over the program when his father decides to retire.

Why did Bellarmine move its home games to Freedom Hall?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on attendance, the Knights would have been permitted to have just 300 fans if the team’s games remained at Knight’s Hall, Bellarmine’s on-campus arena. By moving to Freedom Hall, which can hold more than 18,000 fans, the Knights were able to allow 2,700 fans per game for their first season in Division I.
