Today started off with the Lady Toppers facing off against the University of South Alabama. The Lady Toppers won 72-67, advancing them to the semi-finals tomorrow against Middle Tennessee State University.
Next was the men's game against Arkansas State University. There was a large turnout of ASU fans and they were ready to see their team win. The Hilltoppers came out on fire in the first half, but ASU took the lead at the start of the second half. With about three minutes left in the game it got super intense. Western ended up winning in the last minute of the game, 65-64. They play Troy tomorrow in the semi-finals. I'm having a blast covering basketball here and trying to improve. Check back tomorrow night for another update!
