Junior guard Brandon Gibson (with basketball) puts up the game-winning basket in Louisiana Tech University’s 59-58 Western Athletic Conference victory over Fresno State at the Thomas Assembly Center. Trying to block Gibson’s shot is FSU forward Jerry Brown. Guard Jonathan Willis (2) watches on for Fresno State. The win was the third in a row for Tech and ended a six-game losing streak at home.
