WKU Hilltopper Basketball opens its 100th season with its first exhibition against Campbellsville at 7 p.m. tonight at E.A. Diddle Arena.The Hilltoppers went 27-11 in 2017-18, their most wins in 10 seasons and the most in the state of Kentucky last year, while advancing to the NIT semifinals for the first time since 1954.

 WKU head coach Rick Stansbury was a four-year letterman at guard for Campbellsville from 1977-81 and got his coaching start as a CU student assistant.

As a senior, Stansbury helped lead Campbellsville to the school’s first District 32 hoops title and an appearance in the 1981 NAIA Tournament. He received Campbellsville’s Distinguished Alumni Award in 1999 and was inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003.

If you aren’t a season ticket holder for the men’s games, this and another exhibition game Saturday afternoon may be your best chances to see WKU in action this season. Tickets are basically sold out for the season.

The WKU Ticket Office will not be open on game day for any games this season. General season tickets are sold out, while a handful of premium season tickets remain. Available single-game tickets for the Campbellsville game can be purchased online at or by calling 1-800-5-BIGRED.
