Following the end of Conference USA’s regularly scheduled games, including the WKU loss to Alabama Birmingham, the Hilltoppers’ bonus play schedule has been finalized and they will be the number two seed in pod play.

The Hilltoppers will start out on the road on Feb. 23, going to Old Dominion, a place where they blew a 21-0 lead en route to a Monarchs victory. ODU finished the regular season 21-6, 11-3 in C-USA.

Following the ODU game, the Hilltoppers will play their second road game at UAB on Feb. 28, after being defeated by the Blazers today in Diddle Arena. UAB finished the scheduled season 16-11, 8-6 in C-USA.


The Hilltoppers will wrap up the season with two games at Diddle Arena, on March 3 against Southern Mississippi and March 6 against Texas San-Antonio, both teams that WKU has already defeated this season.

Following bonus play, the C-USA basketball tournament will take place in Frisco, Texas from March 13-16.
