Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Tickets for Sale

7-foot, 240-lb sophomore Josh Higgins is more of a role player, averaging just 2.7 points and less than 3 rebounds per game. Western Kentucky also has a newcomer in 6'-7' Boris Siakam who can help in the frontcourt. Also, 6'-8' Elgrace Wilborn will be eligible to play after sitting out the 2003-04 season following his transfer from Tennessee, so there are new faces and roles up front.

Junior Danny Rumph provides backcourt depth. Freshman 6'-4' Courtney Lee, 6'-3' Ty Rogers and 6'-7' Mike Walker come aboard. Overall, there are new faces on the bench and in the frontcourt. This appears to be another rebuilding season rather than a return to 20-win status they enjoyed from 2001-03.
After winning 24 or more games for three years in a row, the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers dropped to 15-13 last season. That was under first-year head coach Darrin Horn takes. Offense was not a problem, as this team shot 47% from the field, but they were a miserable 62% from the free throw line. Horn likes an up-tempo, pressing style.

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers have a lot of holes to fill, especially in the frontcourt. The backcourt returns 6'-4' junior Anthony Winchester (14 ppg, 5 rpg) and 6'-0' senior Antonio Haynes (12 ppg, 4 apg), who is a fine playmaker. Winchester had 12 points, 8 rebounds against Auburn last year. Western Kentucky was 10-5 SU/4-8 ATS at home, but 5-8 SU/6-7 ATS on the road.
