Following the game, all of the BBN’s attention turned to the upcoming rivalry game against the Louisville Cardinals that was scheduled for Wednesday night.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 issues within the Cardinals’ program, that game had to be postponed.
As a replacement, the Cats will now face off against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers with the game being played to help assist the relief efforts as a result of the tornados that hit Western Kentucky on December 11th.
The Hilltoppers are entering Wednesday’s matchup with an 8-4 overall record.
After losing three of their first four games, WKU has started to find their rhythm as they have since won seven of their last eight including a big 82-72 win over Louisville last Saturday.
The Hilltoppers are led in scoring by senior forward Jairus Hamilton who is averaging 16.5 points while shooting 48.6% from the field and 32% from three.
