The Western Kentucky University men’s basketball team has added a nationally-televised nonconference road game at No. 12 Houston on Thursday night.

Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. on ESPN2.

With the addition, WKU’s home series against Florida International has been pushed back to 2 p.m. Sunday and noon Monday in E.A. Diddle Arena.

The Hilltoppers (15-4), below the NCAA’s maximum threshold of 27 games, have worked to add games throughout the season. Earlier this year, WKU joined the Crossover Classic in South Dakota with three days’ notice, resulting in wins over Northern Iowa and Memphis, and a six-point loss to West Virginia, as well as adding a road contest at Alabama that led to a 73-71 victory.

The Hilltoppers’ final league series at home against Old Dominion the following week remains unchanged.
