#609 Western Kentucky +2.5 over UTEP 4:00 PM CT
Western Kentucky is just 12-11 on the season and only twice this season have the Hilltoppers put together consecutive wins. There are some solid wins on the resume, beating Stony Brook, Central Michigan, Indiana State, and Conference USA leader UAB. At 4-6 in league play this is a big stretch of games and after passing a road test in San Antonio Thursday this is an important second straight road test. Like Western Kentucky, UTEP is in a season of decline after these teams were among the better teams in the conference last season. On Thursday the Miners held on for an exhausting 112-108 win over Marshall, a win that snapped a three-game slide and gave UTEP is fourth conference win. The other three league wins came against the bottom of the conference and the Miners produced nothing substance in non-conference action, actually losing five games including three home games vs. teams outside the top 100. UTEP has defensive edges in this matchup but Western Kentucky has been the clearly superior offensive squad. Western Kentucky won the only meeting in overtime last season and this looks like a game destined to again go down to the wire with the Hilltoppers more trustworthy to hit big shots down the stretch.
