Thursday college basketball features the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers visiting the UAB Blazers.

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers have lost two in a row after a 67-64 decision against the ODU Monarchs as a five point road dog on Saturday.

Western Kentucky has followed a five game winning streak with consecutive losses which has the team 5thin the conference with three games to play.

Taveon Hollingsworth was the Hilltoppers top weapon with 17 points and four pulls with Charles Bassey adding 13 points and six boards. 

Lamonte Bearden gave Western Kentucky 13 points and seven helpers followed by Josh Anderson with eleven points and seven rebounds.

The UAB Blazers are coming off of a 76-72 OT victory against Southern Miss on Saturday as a five point road underdog.

Alabama-Birmingham looked dead in the water with a four game slide before winning three in a row to land in 4thin the standings.

Lewis Sullivan led a balanced Blazers attack with 17 points and eight rebounds with Tavin Lovan next in line with another 16 points.

UAB saw Jalen Perry and Zack Bryant toss in 12 points each with three yanks and eight helpers followed by Tyreek Scott-Grayson with eight points and six boards.

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Conference USA.

UAB Blazers are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and UAB Blazers are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
Under is 8-3-1 in the last 12 meetings and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

This looks like an even matchup where points will be precious so in a coin flip I’ll go with the Blazers…

UAB -1

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
