Feature Brief: Coming Home held this past weekend

Western held its annual basketball event, Coming Home, this weekend. The event honored former Hilltopper basketball players and staff.

Some of the major events of the weekend included women and men’s basketball games, alumni festivities and the Nappy Roots concert on Saturday.

The 1988 Lady Hilltopper Sun Belt Conference tournament champions and other Hilltopper champions were recognized during halftime of both games.

At halftime of the men’s basketball game, Elkton senior Jason Seay, was crowned the Coming Home King. He was sponsored by the Spirit Masters.

He said he was surprised to be chosen.

“It was like I blacked out,” Seay said. “Everything stopped, got quiet. I was really excited.”
