Western Kentucky’s basketball team was sent back to the drawing board on Monday night by Florida Atlantic, a poised outfit that rolled into E.A. Diddle Arena and dismantled the Hilltoppers, 76-62 — proving to one and all why they are ranked among the nation’s Top 25 for the first time in program history.
