Tyler Summitt, son of legendary Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, was recently announced as the next head coach of the Lady Techsters. This is a fantastic hire for Louisiana Tech, and he will surely do great things for our university.

Tyler Summitt is no newcomer to women’s basketball. He has been around it his entire life.

Breaking the silence of PTSD

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

Earlier this week we learned of the second shooting to take place at Fort Hood, this time killing three and wounding 16.
