TALLAHASSEE, Florida — For the second straight year, Louisiana Tech gave Florida State everything the Seminoles wanted on their home floor at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center.
However, unlike last season, the Bulldogs came up just short, falling to Florida State 78-75 before 4,470 fans in the quarterfinal round of the National Invitational Tournament.
After trailing 37-33 at the half, Tech turned up the defensive pressure over the final 20 minutes, turning turnovers into points and building as much as a 51-44 lead with 13:47 to play in the game on a driving layup by Kenyon McNeail.

Despite the Techsters plating four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to cut the lead to two, Northwestern State tacked on three additional runs in the top of the seventh to complete the victory for the Demons.

March is mad for nutrition

We all know it. We try to fight it. But having a healthy diet does the body good.

The purpose behind the academy’s campaign is to educate and inform people on why nutrition is so beneficial to the overall health of the body.
This year’s National Nutrition Month theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.”

Arrington, Briana.jpg

It takes different strokes for different folks.
For instance, the older I get the happier I am to live in a small town. But for many people, the slow-paced lifestyle just doesn’t suit.
I just came back from a three-day trip to New Orleans and although I had a wonderful time, I wanted to do the whole get-on-your-knees-and-kiss-the-ground thing when I crossed the Lincoln Parish line.
While in New Orleans I saw Elton John in concert (it was really good), went shopping, visited friends, ate fancy food, ate some more fancy food, met a lot of new people and wore myself slap out.
