BLUE MOUNTAIN, Miss. – Blue Mountain College Men's Basketball has released its 2017-18 schedule.
Coming off last season's 13-14, 9-11 SSAC record with two wins over Division I programs, the Toppers look to get back in the saddle, taking on five Division I programs in the 2017-18 season, highlighted by showdowns with Ole Miss on Nov. 3 and Southern Miss on Nov. 20.
To go along with the new season, BMC will have a new head coach on the sidelines, Water Valley's Jon Nevol who assisted as a student at Ole Miss.
"My expectation going into this season is to establish a tradition capable of competing for championships," Nevol said. "I want us to protect home court and compete each and every game until the horn sounds, and finish the season on a winning note."
The Toppers face a tough SSAC conference schedule, with their first test coming against Mobile Nov. 30 at Blue Mountain.
With the loss of the top three scorers to graduation, the Toppers look to seniors Justin McClellon (SR/Olive Branch, Miss.), Chase Brittingham (SR/Paragould, Ark.) and Dominic Hudson (SR/Memphis, Tenn.) to lead a talented group of newcomers.
McClellon averaged seven points per game last season and a .471 three-point percentage, despite a season-ending injury.
Included in the Toppers' schedule will be 12 home dates at historic Tyler Gymnasium.
