Western Kentucky Men’s Basketball grabbed a thrilling overtime win over Louisiana Tech Saturday night, sending the Hilltopper senior out with a huge win in their final home game at Diddle Arena. But the three Western seniors shared the spotlight in Saturday’s game with one of the most historic WKU teams in history.

The 1971 Hilltoppers made the program’s only run to an NCAA Final Four, and now 45 years later, are still praised for the accomplishment.
