BOWLING GREEN — On an emotional Saturday when Western Kentucky retired the jersey of one of its most legendary basketball players, the Hilltoppers honored the memory of the late Dwight Smith by turning in one of their most spirited performances of the season.

Dantaie Allen scored a career-high 25 points and WKU limited UTEP to 33% second-half shooting in a 74-69 conquest of the visiting Miners before 4,169 fans in E.A. Diddle Arena.
