  • Athletics: Three Hilltopper Greats to be Inducted into WKU Athletic Hall of Fame:

    The 2017 inductees into the WKU Athletic Hall of Fame are (from left) John Mutchler (football), Jim Rose (men’s basketball) and ShaRae Mansfield (women’s basketball).

    Three great names in the history of WKU Athletics will be inducted Oct. 14 as the 27th class into the WKU Athletic Hall of Fame. The 2017 class includes ShaRae Mansfield (women’s basketball), John Mutchler (football) and Jim Rose (men’s basketball) and will bring the number of former WKU athletes and coaches to earn berths in the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame to 149 since its founding in 1991.

  • Football: Practice Report: Along with the steady upperclassmen of the WKU defense, a youth movement has begun with true freshmen Roger Cray, Antwon Kincade and DeAngelo Malone. That combination has helped the Hilltoppers’ unit post one of the best starts since the program’s move to FBS. Through two games, the 30 points allowed are the fewest, while 4.5 yards per play is the second-fewest since the switch in 2007. Next: WKU hosts Louisiana Tech at 6 p.m. Saturday.

  • Women’s basketball: Jevin Redman Named Lady Topper Play-By-Play Announcer: Following a nationwide search for the next Lady Topper Basketball play-by-play announcer, Hilltopper IMG Sports Marketing General Manager Chris Bloomfield has announced that recent Southern Indiana graduate Jevin Redman will fill the position beginning in the 2017-18 season. “We are excited to have Jevin join the Hilltopper IMG Sports Network team. He has a diverse background having called games at the high school, minor league and collegiate level,” Bloomfield said of the new hire. “I know Lady Topper fans will enjoy listening to Jevin this season.”
