Now it’s on to postseason play for Louisiana Tech University’s football program.
After a night of struggles on the West Coast Saturday night, that’s where the Bulldogs will now focus their efforts.
The regular season certainly didn’t finish in the manner that Tech had hoped for when the game against San Jose State (10-2, 5-1) at Spartans Stadium kicked off at 9:30 p.m., CDT.
Three turnovers in the second half and a night of inconsistency on defense helped send the Bulldogs (9-3, 4-2) to a 52-43 defeat.

Although football season is beginning to wind down, we still have a few more games left before the pigskins are put up until spring practices. For the most, that means here at the Ruston Daily Leader, there are only a few more weeks of staying at the office until an ungodly hour waiting on scores and O.K. “Buddy” Davis to sum up the weekend’s matches.

Davis, OK.jpg

Cleaning off a post-Thanksgiving Day notepad:
• As long as Michael White is head coach for the men’s basketball team at Louisiana Tech University, fans can expect plenty of exciting moments and victories.

Of course, the operative words surrounding White are “as long as” he is the head coach of Tech.

Maybe it wasn’t the $300 million-plus Powerball jackpot, but Louisiana Tech University’s basketball Bulldogs punched another winning ticket of their own on Saturday night.
For the fifth consecutive game, the last year’s Western Athletic Conference postseason tournament runner-ups left a winner and this time against their rival down Interstate Highway 20.
The Bulldogs (5-1) got a 23-point effort out of guard Cordarius Johnson and 18 points from “Young Reliable” sophomore guard Raheem Appleby to pin a 68-52 defeat on the winless Warhawks (0-2).
