KFC YUM! CENTER | LOUISVILLE, KY.
WKU finishes its three-game road trip Saturday morning at 11:00 (CT) at defending national champion Louisville, who is ranked sixth in the latest Associated Press Poll and fourth in the most recent USA Today Coaches Poll.
This is the sixth-straight season that the Hilltoppers and Cardinals have met, with Louisville winning the last four while the Hilltoppers hold a 39-37 edge in the all-time series.
Saturday's game is WKU's third at the KFC Yum! Center, now in its fourth season of existence, as the Hilltoppers lost to the fourth-ranked Cardinals, 70-60, on December 23, 2011 and lost to top-ranked Kentucky in the second round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament, 81-66, in downtown Louisville.
Saturday's contest is the second of four games on WKU's non-conference schedule against teams that won at least 27 games in 2012-13 (Wichita State, 30; Louisville, 35; Southern Miss, 27; Ole Miss, 27).
Saturday's game will be televised nationally on ESPN2 with Bob Wischusen and Kara Lawson on the call. It will also be broadcast on the radio on the Hilltopper IMG Sports Network, airing locally in Bowling Green on WKLX-FM Sam 100.7.
