WKU Men's Basketball Team Opens Regular Season, Women Take on Vandy

The WKU men’s basketball team opens up its season in unusual fashion Monday evening.

Actually, make that Tuesday morning.

The Hilltoppers are on the road at Wichita State for a game that begins at midnight Tuesday morning. The unorthodox scheduling is a result of WKU’s participation in ESPN’s Tip-Off Marathon, an event the network has billed as “24 hours of hoops.”

The WKU-Wichita State game is being televised on ESPN2.  

The WKU women’s basketball team is also kicking off its regular season, and  looking to win on the road against Vanderbilt for the first time in nearly 15 years. The Lady Hilltoppers play the Commodores tonight at 7 p.m. at Memorial Gymnasium in Nashville.

The WKU women’s team won its season-opener Saturday against Austin Peay.
