Hilltopper Gameday at UT Arlington
Feb. 28, 2014
HILLTOPPER BASKETBALL AT UT ARLINGTON
MARCH 1 | 7:30 PM CT | TV: NONE
COLLEGE PARK CENTER | ARLINGTON, TEXAS
As the calendar turns to March, WKU goes for its 10th win in the last 12 games Saturday night at 7:30 (CT) at UT Arlington.
A victory on Saturday would mean 20 wins for the Hilltoppers for the second-straight season and 42nd time in program history, which is the eighth-most in NCAA history and more than programs such as Indiana, Connecticut, Arizona, Texas and Michigan State.
The Hilltoppers knocked off Texas State Thursday night, 51-50, after trailing by 12 points in the second half. Should WKU defeat UT Arlington it would be WKU's seventh road conference win of the season, its most since winning eight league games away from home in 2007-08.
With three games remaining in the 2013-14 regular season WKU is in second place in the Sun Belt Conference standings, one game ahead of Arkansas State in the loss column and two full games ahead of Louisiana-Lafayette.
Saturday's game is not on television. It will be broadcast on the radio on the Hilltopper IMG Sports Network, airing locally in Bowling Green on WKLX-FM Sam 100.7, with Randy Lee and Hal Schmitt on the call.
WKU returns to E.A. Diddle Arena for the final time on Thursday at 7:00 PM (CT) to face Louisiana-Lafayette.
