Following last week’s scrimmage against the male practice players, Louisiana Tech head coach Tyler Summitt wasn’t a happy camper.
He had just witnessed his team loss by 29 points in a regulation game. It didn’t matter to Summitt that they were playing male players who were bigger, faster and stronger. It was the things his players didn’t do that was most upsetting. The little things that turn into big things during a course of a game.
One week later, Summitt was in a much better mood following Wednesday afternoon’s 20-minute scrimmage against the men after the Lady Techsters won 45-19.
After a one-week hiatus and a record-setting performance, Louisiana Tech has returned to the national rankings as the Bulldogs are billed at 24th in the Associated Press poll announced Sunday.
Tech (6-1, 1-0 Western Athletic) makes just its third appearance in the Associated Press poll in the program’s history. The Bulldogs were ranked No. 23 by the AP two weeks ago leading into the team’s game against then 22nd-ranked Texas A&M, the team’s highest ranking ever. Tech was first ranked in the AP poll in 1999 (No. 25).
