WKU men’s basketball is getting another big addition to its lineup.

Less than a week after freshman guard Josh Anderson was ruled eligible by the NCAA, redshirt sophomore forward Moustapaha Diagne was ruled eligible by the NCAA.

According to a release by the WKU basketball program, “He (Diagne) will join the team in Norfolk, Va., and will be available to participate in Thursday’s game at Old Dominion.”

The Hilltoppers (11-5, 3-0) are coming off a 112-87 win at Marshall this past Saturday.

Tip-off against Old Dominion on Thursday is set for 8 p.m. ET.
