WKU fans will have an extra chance to catch their Hilltoppers in Diddle Arena this fall as the program announced on Tuesday the addition of a contest with the Division III Rhodes College Lynx.

The game is set to tipoff on Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. CT. The game will add another slot to WKU’s late November – early December home stand, a stretch that now runs for five games. It will bring WKU’s 2021-22 home game total to 19 games, the most in program history.

The Lynx come out of Memphis, Tennessee and are 2-1 so far this year. Rhodes College has already seen come Conference USA action this fall as the Lynx lost to UAB 98-61 on Sunday.

TV information is yet to be determined. For now, WKU has an away matchup against No. 11 Memphis on Friday to look forward to.
