CHARLESTON, WV -

Five games into the season, Elijah Pitman is showing his scoring prowess. Coming into Thursday's game against Western Kentucky, Pitman ranks fifth in the NCAA in scoring at 29.4 points a game. The Hilltoppers bring a solid defense which ranks 66th in the country, allowing 66.7 points per game.

In his last game against UNC-Wilmington, Pitman scored a career best 35 points. He also knocked down a career best eight three-pointers in the game. Last season, he didn't top the 30-point mark once. He's already done it three times this season. 

Western Kentucky, which joins Conference USA next year, will visit the Cam Henderson Center tonight for a 7 p.m. tip off as part of the Roundball Showcase.
