AND ONES WKU looks a little different than the last meeting with UALR. In that game, big man Aleksej Rostov had 20 points and hit 4 of 6 three-pointers. And Kevin Kaspar had 11 points and hit 3 of 4 three-pointers. Both are now out of the lineup. Rostov has an undisclosed medical condition that seems pretty serious. And Kaspar had to have knee surgery. ... One thing WKU does have is a lot of depth and the Tops are undefeated since losing those players. ... Missing in the first UALR-WKU game was T.J. Price, who received one of those mysterious game time suspensions the Sun Belt is starting to become known for. ... UALR has not lost consecutive Sun Belt Conference games since Feb. 21 and 23 last season. Those losses capped a four-game losing streak to Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee, Florida International and Florida Atlantic. ... Neighbour had a career high 32 points in the first meeting with WKU. Expect WKU to try to crowd and double team him to make him less comfortable tonight.
