BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — After a season-long voting process, WKU's student section was selected as the top in the Sun Belt Conference in the Naismith Student Section of the Year contest, and as a result WKU receives a $250 donation to the university's general scholarship fund.
"We are very excited to have won the Naismith Student Section of the Year award for the Sun Belt Conference," WKU Director of Marketing Zack McKay said. "This is a testament to our tremendous student fan base, which makes E.A. Diddle Arena a special home environment for our men’s and women’s basketball teams. We appreciate everyone who voted in the contest and their continued support of WKU Athletics."
Over 250 institutions around the country participated in the fan voting, which was initiated to determine the top student section in the country.
