Eliminated after the first game of the Western Athletic Conference tournament the previous year, Tech halted Idaho 70-62 in this year’s opening round and then battled tough against host Nevada before losing 77-68.
A good indicator of a bright future is this fact, too: Tech won four of its last five and six of its last eight regular season games.
