The Bruins have won the conference championship in five of the past seven years, but the school is leaving after this school year.

Starting next year with the 2012-13 school year, Belmont will be competing in the Ohio Valley Conference.

The benchmark school in the OVC has the been the Murray State Racers who have dominated the league recently.

The OVC and the Atlantic Sun have been one-bid leagues and the NCAA has rarely taken two from a mid-major conference.
