’Dogs face Salukis in ‘Buster’ battle
The Salukis aren’t a member of the Western Athletic Conference, a la Tech, but Bulldogs’ players surely aren’t looking at the 5 p.m. tipoff in that manner.
“As far as we’re concerned, we’re treating it as a conference game,” sized up junior guard Marcus Elliott. “It’s like we’re playing a WAC school. It’s a big game for us.”
Big it is in terms of helping attract some more national attention for the Bulldogs (16-10, 9-4), who are in the chase for a WAC regular season title and postseason trip to either the NCAA or NIT.
