EKU-WKU Basketball Rivalry On Tap Thursday

Nov 30, 2016

The Eastern Kentucky/Western Kentucky men’s basketball rivalry comes to McBrayer Arena Thursday.  It’s the first time the Hilltoppers have come to Richmond since 2007.

 Western comes into the 8 p.m. matchup, looking for a 14th straight victory over EKU.  The last Colonel win over WKU came in 1987.  Just a year ago, the rivalry was renewed in Bowling Green and Eastern almost got the upset. A three-pointer at the buzzer secured the two-point Hilltopper win.

EKU comes into the home contest with a 3-4 record, after defeating Berea last weekend.  Western Kentucky stands at 3-3 coming off a loss at University of Nevada Las Vegas. 

The EKU-WKU women play at 5:30 p.m.
