Western Kentucky Provides Championship Week's Best Image To Date

Western Kentucky's 74-70 upset of North Texas in Tuesday night's Sun Belt championship game left the college basketball world with no shortage of sexy storylines.

First, you have the Hilltoppers becoming just the 16th team with a losing record (15-18) to make the NCAA Tournament. Then there's coach Ray Harper, who has been named Division II National Coach of the Year an amazing seven times, but got his first shot in Division I when he took over on an interim basis at WKU (the interim tag has since been removed) after the firing of Ken McDonald on Jan. 6.

More important than all of that, however, is Tuesday night's post-celebration picture of famed mascot Big Red, who appears to be either making snow angels in confetti or just straight hammered off victory.
