Enjoy time with friends and family as we celebrate our nations independence!
Earlier this week a source close to the WKU Basketball team told WKU Connection-
“Kenny Cooper has been the surprise of the summer…I knew he was a really good player, I didn’t realize he was this good”
Last season at Lipscomb Cooper averaged 9.8 points, 4.5 assists, and 2.0 steals per game last season.
The question now is whether or not Kenny Cooper will be eligible to play next season for the Hilltoppers. Rick Stansbury believes so, and I sure hope so.
FanDuel has came out with their early preseason win total projection for all power five and non power five schools. WKU is at (5) wins for next season which would be an improvement from a year ago and their (3-9) mark.
If you were to find a league betting state (C’mon Kentucky) you would have to bet $114 dollars to win $100. If you were optimistic on WKU going bowling next season (6-6). If you were pessimistic and the team only winning 4 games you would need to only bet $102 to win 100 dollars.
Do you have WKU passing this win total or falling short?
On Monday WKU Basketball extended an offer to 5 star prospect former Bowling Green Purple Zion Harmon. Harmon is ranked #19 overall in the country by 247 Sports and the #1 overall player in Kentucky in the 2021 class.
Zion won a state championship with BGHS back in 2017 as an 8th grader starting on the varsity squad. He then transferred to Adair county for the 2018 season and then Marshall county for the 2019 season where he was deemed ineligible by the KHSAA.
Harmon holds offers from Auburn, St. Louis, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee.
Over the weekend WKU Football offered 2022 Fredrick Douglass High School WR Dane Key.
Dane is the younger brother of current WKU safety Devon Key.
I would say WKU has a good shot with this one.
College Football Hall of Fame game candidate and WKU legend coach Jim Feix, was one of several candidates for the class of 2020 HAF.
Coach Feix has the most wins of any coach during a career at WKU with 106 wins. He was the man in charge for 15 seasons, during that time, he took the Hilltoppers to 6 OVC championships, 3 time OVC coach of the year. He also went to the Division 2 national title game twice. He is already a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Hall of Fame. As well as a charter member of the WKU Athletics Hall of Fame.
As a player for WKU (1952) he led the Hilltoppers to a 9-1 record and the schools first ever bowl appearance (A win over Arkansas State in the Refrigerator bowl in nearby Evansville, IN). He later joined the New York Giants before an injury ended his playing career.
The Hall of Fame game will take place on August 1st in Canton, OH.
Charles Bassey is on pace to set a scoring WKU record that not even Jim McDaniel’s or Courtney Lee accomplished through two seasons. Through Bassey’s freshmen season on the Hill he has totaled 495 points. He would need 505 points to break the 1,000 point barrier. His teammate Taveion Hollingsworth almost broke this record in (2018-2019) only 4 points shy with (996).
Do you think Charles will set the record?
