Louisiana Tech men’s basketball signee Exavian Christon was nominated to participate in the 2017 McDonald’s All-American game.
The future Bulldog was one of 272 high school seniors and only one of two from the state of Arkansas announced by McDonald’s for the prestigious event which will tip off March 29 at Chicago’s United Center.
Christon, a 6-foot-4-inch guard out of Hot Springs, has had multiple games of 30+ points as well as his first career triple-double with 15 points, 11 assists and 10 steals.
Louisiana Tech used a total team effort to earn a 3-0 sweep over UAB for the team’s first Conference USA victory of the season Sunday afternoon at the Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston.
With the victory, LA Tech improved to 7-12 on the season with a 1-5 mark in C-USA play. UAB dropped to 7-15 overall and 0-8 in league matches.
The win marks Tech’s first conference victory at home since defeated Nevada in five sets in 2010. It was the first sweep over a league opponent at home since 2009 when the Lady Techsters downed Fresno State in the TAC.
Ruston’s annual preseason football extravaganza has gotten just what the doctor ordered.
Lincoln Outpatient Therapy Services and Northern Louisiana Medical Center will be the title sponsors for the third annual “Jam at the Joe” that will be held at Joe Aillet Stadium on the campus of Louisiana Tech University.
It’s back to the drawing board for Lincoln Parish’s high school football programs.
Ruston, Grambling and Cedar Creek all dropped games last weekend and now look to regroup for the fifth Friday night of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s 2011 season.
The Bearcats (1-3) were a 42-14 victim of Shreveport Byrd, the Cougars (3-1) were edged 20-18 by Haynesville and the Kittens (1-3) were shutout 26-0 by Jonesboro-Hodge.
That RHS-Byrd final score wasn’t indicative of how close the Bearcats played the No. 6-ranked Class 5A Yellow Jackets.
