For the fourth straight year and the sixth time in the past seven years, former Louisiana Tech basketball great Paul Millsap has been chosen as the recipient of the Bob Pettit Award for 2014 by the Louisiana Association of Basketball Coaches (LABC).
The award is given annually to the most outstanding professional basketball player from a Louisiana college.
Millsap played for the Atlanta Hawks this season after spending seven years with the Utah Jazz, the team who drafted him in the second round back in 2006.
GRAMBLING — Tough times don’t always last, but tough guys do.
That’s the mantra being emphasized this week on Grambling State University’s football team.
Going through arguably the toughest start in the program’s history, the Tigers once again try and corral their first victory on Saturday with a homecoming game against the University of Virginia-Lynchburg.
Grambling has yet to win in six tries and is 0-5 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, where it captured championship honors in 2011.
