Later this month, another jersey will be hoisted to the rafters at E.A. Diddle Arena. The WKU Athletics Department has announced that Bowling Green native Darel Carrier will have his uniform No. 35 retired on February 22nd as WKU plays host to the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
He’ll be the eight person affiliated with WKU Men’s basketball to have his jersey retired, joining E.A. Diddle, Clem Haskins, Thom Marhsall Jim McDaniels, John Oldham, Carlisle Towery and Bobby Rascoe. Carrier was a Hilltopper from 1962 to 1964 and later played professionally in the ABA.
