LISTEN: Rick Stansbury Previews Tonight's Volleyball Match-up + Arkansas Preview | WKU Connection

WKU Sports

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.

See you all in Diddle tonight and tomorrow night!

WKU Basketball Makes Small Changes to 2019-2020 Jerseys | WKU Connection

Earlier today WKU Basketball released photos of the new threads the team will be wearing this winter via WKU Basketball’s social media platforms.

The updates are small, but look cleaner and more updated. Props to WKU for the change.

Since the change of the schools athletic partner from Russell to Nike in 2017 Western Kentucky has sported a look similar to the one above. Still wish we could try an alternate jersey such as a all black design with red numbers, and letters. This uniform idea would be good for the game in Nashville on Black Friday vs. Louisville.

Can’t wait to see how much higher Josh Anderson can dunk in these in front of a sold out Diddle Arena.

Josh Anderson’s Top 5 Dunks (So Far) 2018-2019

There’s nothing like the atmosphere inside Diddle arena after a dunk by Josh Anderson. Josh is one of the best in the country at dunking and it’s not even close. Here are some of Josh’s top dunks of his WKU career so far.
