Despite the calendar having not yet turned to December, WKU begins Sun Belt Conference play this week, starting Thursday night at 7:30 at ULM in a rematch of last season’s Sun Belt Conference opener.
WKU has won four of its last five games and 11 of 14 overall and will begin a challenging Sun Belt Conference slate after being picked to finish third in the conference’s east division in the preseason coaches’ poll.
ULM returns one starter and five letterwinners from a team that went 3-26 in 2011-12, and Thursday’s game is its home opener for the 2012-13 season.
This weekend’s games are the final two in a stretch of four of five away from home for the Hilltoppers, who return to Bowling Green next week for two home games.
The game will be televised by the Hilltopper Sports Satellite Network, airing nationally on ESPN3 and ESPN Full Court and locally on WKYU-PBS.
