LACETT | Hilltoppers show heart in OT win over FAU

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – Moments after his team edged Florida Atlantic in overtime, Western Kentucky head coach Ray Harper borrowed a line from Steve Allen.

This could be the start of something.

“At some point, you need one of these type of games. Maybe this could be the starting point,” said Harper whose Hilltoppers  (9-7, 1-2 C-USA) beat the Owls 86-82.

“I told them, ‘You may see me struggle but you’ll never see me quit,” said Harper.

Justin Johnson led the way with 18 for WKU as the Hilltoppers snapped a two game losing streak with the win.

Aaron Cosby added 17 including 5 points in OT.

WKU’s win helps them avoid its first 0-3 conference start in six years.
