Though the 3rd year of Rick Stansbury era as the Head Coach of Western Kentucky, we have had some big wins. During this time we have had the best recruiting classes in WKU history. Recruiting the state of Kentucky very well in this season having 6 players on the current roster. Half of them being a former Mr. Basketball. He has led us to 7 wins over power 5 schools, Back to back conference title game appearances, an NIT Final Four appearance, and lots of exciting atmospheres in Diddle. Over his 3 seasons at WKU Stansbury has a posted a record of 62-42 for a win percentage of (.596)

With all of this success, it is a make or break year for Rick Stansbury to make it to the NCAA Tournament? With having loads of talent returning from a 20 win team a season ago. Being that it has been 7 years since WKU has heard their named called on Selection Sunday. And as of right now Joe Lunardi of ESPN Bracketology has WKU as the 12 seed in the 2020 NCAA Tournament.

With this I ask you, what are you expectations for WKU Basketball this season?
