Bowling Green, Ky. - The Hilltopper Atheltic Foundation is organizing a deluxe motor coach bus trip to Murfreesboro, Tenn., for Western Kentucky University's basketball doubleheader against Middle Tennessee on Saturday, Jan. 4. The Lady Toppers tip off at 4:30 p.m. (CST), followed by the men's game at 7 p.m.
The package includes transportation to and from Murfreesboro, tickets to both games and snacks and beverages on-board. The package is priced at $23 per person for HAF members and their immediate families. The cost for non-HAF members is $30 per person.
The bus will leave the E.A. Diddle Arena parking lot at 2 p.m. and will arrive at the Murphy Center at approximately 4 p.m. for those planning on attending the women's game. The bus will then take any person not planning on attending the women's game to the Sports Planet Cafe in downtown Murfreesboro (there are also a number of dining establishments within walking distance of the cafe). Fans will be returned to the Murphy Center at 6:15 p.m. for a pre-game pep rally (hosted by the WKU Alumni Association) prior to the men's game. The bus will return to Bowling Green immediately following the second contest.
The HAF must have at least 45 people reserve spaces on the bus by noon on Friday, Dec. 20. The trip will be cancelled if 45 people have not reserved a spot by that date.
