Abbey Still Moving Up

BELMONT — In the first two years Stephen Miss has been head coach of Belmont Abbey College’s basketball team, the Crusaders have exceeded preseason expectations.

As his third season begins Tuesday night at home against Brevard, Miss and his team are hopeful of repeating the past.

“Our first year, we were picked 11th in the preseason poll and finished third. Last year, we were picked 4th and finished third again,” Miss said. “We’re picked 5th this season and, hopefully, that trend will continue.”
Losing three starters will make it more of a challenge, especially since two of them were guards Deonte Murphy and Jonathan Jackson.

But Miss says he and his team welcome the opportunity to defy what they consider low preseason projections.
