The Bowling Green Hot Rods and WKU Hilltopper baseball team have announced a unique schedule which will allow them both to play games at the Bowling Green Ballpark on April 9th and April 23rd.
The schedule allows WKU to host both the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. WKU Head Baseball Coach Matt Myers says the chance to play in the professional ballpark is good for recruiting and good for the fans.
The Hot Rods, the class A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, will schedule "education day" games for area school children on April 9th and 23rd, to accomodate the 6 pm WKU games on those dates.
The bad hits just keep on coming for the WKU men's basketball team. Senior point guard Jamal Crook is out 4-6 weeks with a right foot fracture sustained during Sunday's loss at Murray State.
The Courier-Journal reports the injury couldn't come at a worse time, as the Hilltoppers are getting ready to play one of the top teams in the nation, the Louisville Cardinals. WKU head coach Ray Harper says his team is suffering through the worst rash of injuries he's seen in his long coaching career.
VCU's trademark defensive pressure gave a depleted WKU team trouble Tuesday night in Richmond, Va., and WKU dropped a 76-44 decision in front of the 24th-straight sellout crowd at Verizon Wireless Arena.
WKU is now 8-4 on the season, and VCU improves to 8-3.
George Fant led WKU with eight points and eight rebounds. Kevin Kaspar added eight and five, and Brandon Harris, Percy Blade and Aleksejs Rostov each had seven points. VCU was paced by four players in double figures, led by Briante Weber's 13.
