Upset Alert: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers to Make Some Noise Once Again in 2009

Jake KarmelCorrespondent IIMarch 16, 2009

The Hilltoppers are poised to make another run in the NCAA tournament. Going 9-1 in their last 10, the Hilltoppers are a threat once again.

Seeded No. 12 in this year's tournament, the boys from Kentucky are a threat to the top teams in the country. With notable wins over Georgia, Southern Illinois, and top seed Louisville, they will be a sure threat come tournament time.

With wins over Drake and San Diego last year, the Hilltoppers will be back and will be loud. With the help of 12 returning players and points leader A.J. Slaughter, the boys from Bowling Green will be sure to make some noise.


My Prediction

The boys from Kentucky will make a run into the Sweet 16 once again, taking down Illinois and Gonzaga along the way with an eventual loss in Memphis to North Carolina.
