The players of Western Kentucky and University of North Texas had some serious star power watching them at Thursday’s quarterfinals round of the Conference USA Basketball Tournament at The Star in Frisco. Seated courtside were Cowboys quarterbacks Dak Prescott & Mike White.

White played football at Western Kentucky before he was drafted by the Cowboys last April. Dak, like Mike, is a big fan of all college sports.

In previous years, he has supported his alma mater when the Mississippi State women’s team competed in the NCAA Final Four in Dallas. But Dak’s loyalties to his alma mater run deep.

So, when a fan of a rival school – Southern Miss of Conference USA – asked Dak to sign his Southern Miss Golden Eagles pullover, Dak joked that he would have a hard time signing anything that was Eagles-related.

As for Dak’s and Mike’s rooting interest on Thursday, the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky defeated North Texas and moved into the semifinals where they take on Southern Miss on Friday afternoon at 3pm in the men’s bracket. That game is preceded at 12:30pm by UAB vs Old Dominion.

The women’s tournament also continues at The Star in Frisco with quarterfinals on Friday night: Western Kentucky vs Rice at 5:30pm; and Middle Tennessee vs UAB at 8pm.

The finals for both men’s and women’s tournaments take place on Saturday, March 16th.
