FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — With fewer than 30 seconds left in Western Kentucky's game against Arkansas, Hilltoppers center Charles Bassey got the ball in the lane and was met by a couple Razorbacks defenders.
Instead of forcing it, the NBA prospect made a smart read and dumped the ball off to a wide-open Marek Nelson, who laid it in with 19 seconds to go.
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Dwight Coleby had a career-high 19 points and 10 rebounds for his second career double-double, Justin Johnson added 10 points and eight boards, and Western Kentucky beat Kentucky Wesleyan 83-53 on Wednesday night.
Six Hilltoppers scored in double figures for the first time since Jan. 21, 2017. Taveion Hollingsworth was one point away from seven players having at least 10 points, which hasn't been done in the program since 2001.
