Louisville Cardinals vs Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Predictions 12/18/2021


Western Kentucky is placed 108th in the KenPom rankings and 143rd in the Net Rankings. However, if they make it to the NCAA Tournament or the NIT, they are not a squad you want to meet. The Hilltoppers had a difficult start to the season, but they also faced a difficult schedule.


Defeats by nine points to South Carolina, four points to Minnesota, and twelve points to Memphis are hardly the worst defeats you can endure. They also lost by 10 points at home to Buffalo, which is not a good result as a 2.5-point favorite. 


This season, the Hilltoppers are 5-4 versus D-1 opponents, headed by Maryland and Boston College transfer Jairus Hamilton, who produces 16.8 points and 6.4 rebounds on 49.3 percent shooting, and Dayvion McKnight, who contributes 14.2 points and 6.7 rebounds on 54.6 percent shooting (40 percent 3pt).


Western Kentucky averages 78.3 points per game on 48.1 percent shooting (41st in the country) and 32.1 percent from the three-point range. They surrender 65.1 points per game while shooting 37.8 percent (25th) and 30.7 percent from the three-point range.


  • The University of  Western Kentucky Hilltoppers is 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • Western Kentucky is 7-1 SU in their last 8 matches at home.
