The Hilltoppers, off to their best start to a season since 2007-08 at 7-2, have won nine-straight home games and will look to make it an even 10 against the Jaguars before taking next week off from games for final examinations. From there, WKU hits the road for three games at Murray State, VCU and against Louisville in Nashville to wrap up the non-conference schedule.

During the current five-game winning streak WKU is averaging 68.4 points per game and outscoring opponents by over 10 points per game, and three players are in double figures in scoring, led by T.J. Price at nearly 20 points per contest.

The game will be televised by the Hilltopper Sports Satellite Network, airing nationally on ESPN3 and ESPN Full Court, locally on WKYU-PBS and in Louisville on WBNA. It will also be broadcast on the radio on the Hilltopper IMG Sports Network with Randy Lee and Hal Schmitt on the call. Live stats and live audio are available on
