In a back and fourth game it came down to one untimed down and Freshmen kicker Corey Munson’s right leg. Munson would nail a 52 yard field goal to give WKU their 9th win on the season and a victory in the Servpro First Responder Bowl.
Here’s how Hilltopper Nation and the internet reacted to the kick.
Here’s a view from inside the stadium as the kick goes through.
Late Sunday night a source close to the men’s basketball program confirmed to WKU Connection that Sophomore center Charles Bassey has sustained a season ending injury in Saturday nights match-up with Arkansas.
The actual specifics of the injury itself have not yet been publicized, but are likely to come out sometime within the week. (Likely Coach Stansbury’s press conference Monday afternoon).
Bassey was averaging 15.9 ppg and 9.6 rebounds per game entering Saturday night.
Several NBA Draft evaluation sites had Charles listed as a top 10 pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
Western Kentucky is off this week for finals and will not play in again until an exhibition match with Kentucky Wesleyan on Tuesday December 14th.
This afternoon the indiapolis colts announced they have extended former WKU TE Jack Doyle to a 3 year extension. This deal comes after the Los Angeles Rams decided to extend Tyler Higbee earlier this season. A good year to be former Hilltopper now in the NFL.
To this point Doyle has totaled 36 catches for 377 yards and 4 touchdowns in the 2019 season.
The extension is reportly a 3 year deal worth 21 million guaranteed with a possible for incentives bumping it up to 24 million. Currently 3 former Hilltopper Tight Ends are on active NFL rosters, Deon Yelder (Chiefs), Tyler Higbee (Rams), and Jack Doyle (Colts).
Previewing Saturday’s match-up with undefeated Arkansas Rick Stansbury had this to say during his opening statement,
“I think the most important thing is we’ve got a bigger volleyball game than we do basketball game, don’t we? What an amazing job Coach Hudson and that staff and those players have done.”
Stansbury even mentioned that he was cancelling a recruiting visit tonight to be in attendance. Coach Stansbury likely was scheduled to make the trip to Marshall County to watch 5 star recruit Zion Harmon, who the Hilltoppers have had on their radar since the spring.
Hilltopper Guards Josh Anderson and Camron Justice also spoke to the media following Stansbury’s press conference.
After a 3-0 set sweep of Kennesaw State last night in the opening round of the NCAA tournament Western Kentucky Volleyball will look to advance to the sweet 16 with a victory tonight against the University of Louisville.
Western Kentucky (32-1) suffered their lone loss of the season to Louisville, they will look to avenge that loss tonight in Diddle Arena at 7:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased here.
Last night Western Kentucky set the record for a Volleyball match inside Diddle Arena (And i’d say that record will be broke again tonight).
Louisville also had this comment made following their win vs. Samford Thursday night.
