WKU women’s basketball coach Michelle Clark-Heard is making more noise on the recruiting trail. The first-year coach has signed her first commitment for the Class of 2013. Paul Laurence Dunbar High School junior Kierra Muhammad says she’ll play her college ball at WKU.
The WKU baseball team will face top-seeded Florida Atlantic tonight at the Bowling Green Ballpark, as the Sun Belt Conference tournament gets underway in the home of the Bowling Green Hot Rods. WKU has played four games in that minor league park in the past, winning all four.
WKU standout Vinny Zollo has decided to continue his basketball career at Furman in Greenville, South Carolina. The 6-foot-8 power forward announced his decision on his blog, saying he felt Furman was the best school to help him develop on and off the court. The former Clark County star appeared in all 35 of WKU’s games this season, averaging 3.7 points and 2.9 rebounds last season.
WKU head men's basketball coach Ray Harper added three more players to the roster for the 2012-13 season, as Eddie Alcantara, Michael Bradley and Aleksejs Rostovs will be suiting up for the Hilltoppers beginning in the fall. Alcantara (F, 6-5, 205, Chicago, Ill. [Hales Franciscan HS]), Bradley (F/C, 6-10, 225, Chattanooga, Tenn. [University of Connecticut]) and Rostovs (C, 6-9, 225, Riga, Latvia [Canarias Basketball Academy]) join junior college guard Brandon Harris as newcomers for the Hilltoppers in 2012-13.
