Piedmont Bruins

Piedmont International University offers many opportunities for students to represent the Lord and the university in sport, either as a student-athlete or spectator.

“Piedmont has great reason to be very proud of its athletic program, not just because of its success, as some measure success, but because of the men and women who have been a part of this program who are now using the same valuable lessons they learned from the game of basketball and volleyball. Today, these athletes’s are players in a different arena, serving the Lord around the world. The thing that I cherish the most about the years of coaching is having a part in their lives and seeing them in ministry for Christ.” -Coach Phil Franklin, Athletic Director

Piedmont is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Division II, South Region which consists of nine colleges primarily in Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. The men’s basketball team has appeared in four regional semi-final games since 1997.



Men's Basketball Highlights
1/31/2014 - Clearwater Christian

On Thursday, January 31, the PIU Bruins hosted the CCC Cougars. The Bruin Den was blacked out and packed out with Bruin fans ready to be the 6th man on the court. The importance of this rematch from earlier in the season was heightened by the return of All American and former Bruin, Mike Key. Piedmont got off to a great and powerful start going into halftime up by double digits. Starting in the second half, Mike Key would bring the Cougars back around. The lead was a power struggle back and forth until the final possession. With only seconds left on the clock, and several key players for Piedmont on the bench with foul trouble, Austin Decker lobbed a three quarter court shot, barley coming short. In overtime it was a thriller, but ultimately ending up in a one point loss to CCC with a final score of 100-99.
