The Last Hurrah: Cajuns, ‘Toppers Clash for Final Time as SBC Foes
Barring a meeting in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, this is it for one of the Sun Belt’s better rivalries.
Louisiana is at Western Kentucky tonight and the game means a lot to both teams.
WKU (19-10, 11-5) currently holds down second place in the league standings. The Cajuns (19-10, 10-6) are a game behind. The #2 seed gets a bye into the semifinals of the Tournament, beginning next week in New Orleans.
The Hilltoppers and Cajuns have played some memorable games and, at times, the rivalry has gotten a bit testy. WKU leads the all-time series 25-16, 22-15 as league foes. Tipoff at E. A. Diddle Arena in Bowling Green is at 7:05pm. The game will be broadcast on the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Radio Network at 6;35.

WKU will clinch the #2 seed with a win. The Cajuns would take that spot with a win tonight, a win at Arkansas State Saturday and a WKU loss at Georgia State.
