Couldn’t make it to New York to catch the game? Here’s some places you can watch

WKU guard Lamonte Bearden (1) and Oklahoma State Cowboys guard Kendall Smith (1) battle for a loose ball during NIT quarterfinal game between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Hilltoppers at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater, Okla. on Wednesday, March 21st, 2018. 

The WKU men’s basketball team is on the brink of history as they play the University of Utah Tuesday tonight in the semifinal of the NIT in New York.

WKU and Utah tip off at 6 p.m. CST in Madison Square Garden in New York City. The game will be televised on ESPN. With a win, the Hilltoppers will play the winner of Mississippi State University and Penn State University in the championship on Thursday night.

If you weren’t able to carpool it to New York, or grab a flight up there in time, you’re still in luck because several places are hosting watch parties tonight. 

Here are a few places we’ve seen so far, but please let us know of more so we can continue to update this list. 

Downing Student Union is, of course, the hub of student activity and they’ll be celebrating with game day specials from Papa John’s Pizza.
