  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Western falls to Cardinals (12/23)

    BOWLING GREEN — This was not the type of year Steffphon Pettigrew expected to have in his final season as a Western Kentucky Hilltopper.

    The former Elizabethtown High School star got a gut check Wednesday night as the Louisville Cardinals traveled down I-65 and handed his Hilltoppers a 114-82 beatdown.

    Pettigrew shined as the Hilltoppers upset the Cardinals in Nashville in 2008, which allowed the Hilltoppers to beat a ranked team for the first time in seven years and knock off their highest-ranked opponent in more than 40 years.
