WKU and VCU agree on two-year men’s hoops series

20 05 2011

Western Kentucky athletic director Ross Bjork confirmed via Twitter this afternoon that WKU and Virginia Commonwealth have agreed on a two-year home and home series in men’s basketball.

VCU will visit E.A. Diddle Arena on Nov. 23 to begin the series – the Hilltoppers will then travel to VCU during the 2012-13 season.

This November’s matchup will mark the first time since 1986 that WKU has hosted a Final Four team from the previous season.

VCU and WKU will also both be participants in this year’s Charleston Classic tourney, but I’m told once the brackets are finalized, the two will likely be place on opposite sides.
