Gibson leads Bulldogs to exhibition win
Junior Brandon Gibson’s tip-in with 2.4 seconds to play lifted Louisiana Tech University to a 72-71 exhibition win over Texas A&M-Kingsville Sunday afternoon at the Thomas Assembly Center.
“I will take the W but our performance was far from good,” said head coach Michael White.
“Our kids continued to fight and found a way to win.”
Gibson’s late-game heroics came off a miss on a short jumper by freshman Isaiah Massey from an inbound pass and capped a come-from-behind victory as the Bulldogs — who led for the majority of the second half — overcame a late 69-65 deficit for the win.
