What to Know
The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers will be returning home after a two-game road trip. WKU and the UAB Blazers will face off in a Conference USA battle at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday at E.A. Diddle Arena. UAB will be strutting in after a win while the Hilltoppers will be stumbling in from a loss.
It was close but no cigar for WKU as they fell 86-83 to the Florida International Panthers on Saturday.
Meanwhile, UAB was able to grind out a solid victory over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs on Saturday, winning 83-76.
WKU is expected to lose this next one by 3. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-1 against the spread when expected to lose.
The Hilltoppers came out on top in a nail-biter against the Blazers when the two teams previously met in March of last year, sneaking past 64-60. WKU’s win shoved UAB out of the playoffs, so they have a target on their back.
