Louisiana Tech men’s basketball head coach Michael White announced Wednesday the signing of forward Chris Anderson out of Weatherford College in Texas to a financial grant-in-aid.
Anderson, a 6-foot-6-inch 225-pound forward, will have two-years of eligibility remaining when he joins the Bulldogs for the 2012-13 season.
“Chris is a tremendous talent who has been really productive for two years in a very good junior college league,” White said. “He is very versatile and really fits into our offensive and defensive schemes while also adding size and a high-level of athleticism to our roster.”
Whether it was producing at the plate or on the mound, Melanie Goff was a major reason why Louisiana Tech University’s softball team had a winning record (11-10) this spring against league foes for only the third time since joining the Western Athletic Conference.
The senior from San Diego, Calif. had a .345 batting average and drove in 32 runs, plus compiled a combined on-base and slugging percentage of .828.
From the circle, Goff had a 4-5 record and 2.96 and saved four games.
It was in the latter category where she finished in the Top 25 for all players in the nation.
