’Dogs reach ‘rare air’ with AP poll
Now it’s the turn for the men’s basketball team at Louisiana Tech University to get some love in the Top 25.
First, football last fall when the Bulldogs captivated their fans and the nation with an appearance in the national Top 25 polls.
Earlier this week, the Bulldogs’ hoopsters broke into the ‘25” group by climbing to the No. 25 slot in the Associated Press poll voted on by a national panel of media representatives.
It’s the first time since the mid-1980s for Tech to have both its football team and men’s basketball squad earn Top 25 listings in the same season.
