Hilltoppers to Play in 2015 Gulf Coast Showcase This November

Posted on 21 April 2015 by Allen


WKU will be part of the eight-team 2015 Gulf Coast Showcase, played Nov. 23-25 at Germain Arena in Estero, Fla.

WKU will be joined by Murray State, Central Michigan, Drake, Duquesne, Milwaukee, Pepperdine and Weber State in the field. Each team will play three games in the tournament. Green Bay won the showcase last year, and fellow Conference USA school LA Tech was the inaugural tournament champion in 2013.

Tickets for the 2015 Gulf Coast Showcase go on-sale on May 15 at 9:00 AM (CT) at or through Ticketmaster. All-session tickets will be available on that date for $89 or $139. Single-session tickets will go on-sale this summer after matchups and game times are announced.

WKU played in the NIT Season Tip-Off last season for its exempt tournament and has played in the Cancun Challenge, Charleston Classic and Puerto Rico Tip-Off in recent years.

WKU went 20-12 in 2014-15 and finished 12-6 in C-USA action in its debut season in the league. The Hilltoppers have secured three-straight 20-win seasons, joining LA Tech as the only C-USA schools to accomplish the feat.

Matchups for the Gulf Coast Showcase and more information on the rest of WKU’s 2015-16 schedule will be available in the coming months.
