15-18 Western Kentucky pull off upset, win Sun Belt Tournament
March 7, 2012By Tyler Bloyd of KentuckySports.co
Go ahead and add another team from the Bluegrass State in the NCAA Tournament as Western Kentucky knocked off North Texas 74-70 tonight in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament Championship.
This comes as a huge surprise as WKU ended the year with a 15-18 record and actually fired their coach mid-season when they began 5-14. But this didn't shut the team down as they turned it around, got hot when it counted and are now marching on to what seems to be a first round game in Dayton which if they win could set up a match up against UK here in Louisville at The Yum! Center.
So congratulations to the Hilltoppers and Vinny Zollo a former Billy Clyde commit, somewhere on a golf course he is proud, and all of you guys have made the state excited as you join Kentucky, Louisville and Murray State in the Big Dance! Go Tops!
