Techsters made history in ’82
(Editor’s note: Louisiana Tech University will honor its three national championship teams in women’s basketball on Saturday. A luncheon is set for that day at 11:30 a.m., at the Squire Creek Golf and Country Club to recognize members of the team and tickets are available at $25 each by calling Barbara Swart at the Marbury Alumni House at 255-7950. This is the second in a series of three game stories written by O.K. Davis of the Daily Leader on the Techsters’ national title victories, with the following story having appeared in the March 28, 1982 edition of the Daily Leader. Today: the NCAA’s first-ever national championship game in 1982).
