WKU’s annual tip-off event for Hilltopper and Lady Topper Basketball, Hilltopper Hysteria, is set to take place Thursday, Oct. 17, beginning at 6 p.m. CT at E.A. Diddle Arena.
Both programs will be introduced and will go through scrimmages on John Oldham Court, but in a change from years past, the men’s team will instead go through a full, game-length open scrimmage in front of the Hysteria crowd. Parking and admission are free for the event.
Hilltopper Hysteria will once again be a ticketed event this season, although it remains free admission. Season ticket holders for men's basketball will have first priority to ensure their season ticket seat locations for Hysteria, but must do so by 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4.
After that, women's basketball season ticket holders will have priority to secure remaining seats for Hysteria from Monday, Oct 7 through Wednesday, Oct. 9. Starting at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10 through the time of the event, seats will be available to the general public.
To reserve your season ticket seats, call 1-800-5-BIGRED, text your name to 1-800-524-4733 or email email@example.com.
