Toppers move first men’s game

Posted on 18 September 2014 by Allen


The 2014-15 WKU Hilltopper Basketball season opener against Austin Peay has been moved from Friday, Nov. 14 to Saturday, Nov. 15 due to a change in WKU’s schedule in the 2014 NIT Season Tip-Off later that month.

The game will tip at 4:00 PM (CT). WKU football hosts Army at 11:00 AM (CT) that day, and the Lady Topper Volleyball squad plays Middle Tennessee at E.A. Diddle Arena that night at 7:00 (CT).

“Opening the season on a Saturday will be great for our fans, and having two other games that day will allow people to enjoy a full day on campus,” WKU Director of Athletics Todd Stewart said. “We thank Austin Peay for their willingness to move the game back 24 hours to help us adjust our schedule to accommodate both fans and team travel.”

WKU travels to Minnesota to open play in the NIT Season Tip-Off on Tuesday, Nov. 18. Previous drafts of the schedule for the showcase had WKU playing the Golden Gophers on Monday, which is why WKU originally scheduled Austin Peay for Friday the 14th to help with travel logistics.
