IRVING, Texas — As a result of leading Louisiana Tech in scoring in two wins over Northwestern State and Jackson State, Alex Hamilton earned Conference USA Player of the Week as voted on by a media panel representing the 14 member schools.
It marks the first C-USA Player of the Week honor for a Bulldog and the second of Hamilton’s career.
The last time the Chipley, Florida, native earned the award was after putting up a career-high 31 points at Oklahoma last season.
Two teams in transition. Two teams with new head coaches and staffs. Two teamss with new starting quarterbacks. Two teams looking to getting better defensively after struggling on that side of the ball in 2012.
Louisiana Tech and North Carolina State will square off at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, and while they’re not exactly mirror images of each other, there are still many similarities between the Bulldogs, who went 9-3 last season, and the Wolfpack, who finished with a 7-6 mark.
