Second half, 7:03 to go: WKU 51, USA 46

Slaughter hits a three out of the timeout, giving WKU back the lead at 44-43. That score saved a dumb drive by Sally through a double team, in which he almost turned it over but manged to get it to Slaughter. An Evans rebound off a USA miss gave the Toppers an opportunity to get a little breathing room, but Slaughter missed a jumper. Kerusch hits a jumper at the foul line for a 46-43 lead following two missed FTs by USA’s Douglas. Sally hits a three to stretch it out to 51-46, Western’s biggest lead since the half.

Free throws could be big down the stretch. USA shoots 66 percent on the season from the line, WKU 69 percent. In the last two minutes, both teams have shot FTs: WKU was 2-2 (OMV), while USA went 1-3 (Coleman, Douglas).
