Comeback propels Tech to road win

The win provided Tech with its first road win of the season and pushed the Bulldogs to 2-2 while Arkansas-Pine Bluff fell to 0-5.
Junior guard Corey Dean poured in a career-high 22 points, including 12 free throws, to lead the Bulldogs.
After sleep-walking through the first half and Tech continuing its sluggish play in the opening minutes of the second stanza, Corey Dean's steal and ensuing dunk with 17:04 remaining cut the UAPB lead to 44-38 and seemed to wake the slumbering Bulldogs, who would go on to tie the game at 44-44 with 14:54
left on a Dean layup.

“I think our kids played hard they just made some pivotal mistakes down the stretch. The score in no way reflects how close the game really was,” GSU head coach Rusty Ponton said.

Senate candidate forum gets personal

State Sen. Bill Jones, D-Ruston, the incumbent, opened the forum by saying he wasn’t going to focus on how the state needs to continue its work on improving education and creating jobs.
“My record shows that I have been active in both areas, and that I’ve made a positive difference,” Jones said. “Every election involves us in a decision-making process where all of us compare and contrast the candidates. I think it’s time we did that. The contrasts between me and my opponent are stark.”

Monday's decision came after months of heated discussion about how the local school system will balance future budgets and upgrade schools in the area.

Warner will not seek presidency

The decision means Warner will not seek the permanent position of president of the historically black Lincoln Parish institution.
Many members of the GSU community have wondered what Warner would do since she led the school from national accreditation troubles three years ago to having the accreditation affirmed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in December.
