sports.jpg

For the women’s basketball teams at Louisiana Tech University and South Carolina, the long wait is over.
For the first time since 1983, the two schools will play each other with a 7 p.m. tipoff at the Thomas Assembly Center tonight.
That’s a 30-year gap between tonight’s meeting on the Karl Malone Court and the one held on Jan. 15, 1983, the very first year that the TAC opened.
Yes, that’s a long hiatus for the series.
