SAN ANTONIO — Louisiana Tech picked up win No. 20 on the season, coming into San Antonio and grabbing an 87-74 victory over UTSA on Thursday night inside the Convocation Center.
Tech (20-6, 9-4 Conference USA) held a seven-point advantage at halftime, but found a great rhythm on offense and defense to push its lead up to 64-40 with 11:51 to go.
There was still a lot of fight in a UTSA (4-23, 2-12 C-USA) team with only four wins on the season as the Roadrunners clawed back to get the deficit down to eight with two minutes.

Ruston along with Union, Claiborne and Jackson Parishes played host to a one-day national qualifier on Lakes D’Arbonne, Caney, and Claiborne on April 18th.
This much anticipated event did not disappoint as 112 anglers from 13 different states reported catching large numbers of crappie daily during pre fishing. A lunchtime media day was held on the new D’Arbonne Pointe, which helped generate much interest for this first time Crappie Masters tournament in Louisiana. Once again, local knowledge played a major role in the outcome.
