With President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron in attendance, Western Kentucky all but willed its way into a Thursday night Round of 64 meeting with Kentucky. Down 16 points with 5:07 to play, the Hilltoppers outscored Sean Woods’ Mississippi Valley State team 22-5 to pull out the 59-58 victory.
This is the same WKU that was down 13 points in the second half to North Texas in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament final before pulling out the victory.
So now it’s on to Louisville, where today there are open practices and press conferences at the Yum Center. Kentucky’s open practice is scheduled to be from 4:25 p.m. to 5:05. It is free and open to the public.
