The Lady Techsters basketball program hit the daily double Monday with a pair of Player of the Week awards.
Louisiana Tech senior Whitney Frazier was named the Louisiana Sports Writers Association State Player of the Week as selected by association members, following her performance in the Lady Techster wins over Florida Atlantic and Florida International University.
Tech forward Tiara Davenport was named the Conference USA Freshman of the Week following her performances in the Lady Techsters road wins.
Frazier averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in the two games.
Looking to lock down sole possession of first place in Conference USA with two games left in the regular season, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs showed they might have saved some of their best for last.
The Bulldogs were red hot in their Red Out game featuring all red uniforms as Tech stormed to a 77-60 win over Texas-El Paso in front of 5,160 rambunctious fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Thursday night.
There’s no question Louisiana Tech University has a strong women’s track program and a strong engineering department.
That was more that enough to convince Ruston High School senior sprinter Zenecia Jackson, who announced Wednesday that she signing on to join the Lady Techsters track team.
“Louisiana Tech is getting a great athlete and more importantly, a great person,” said RHS track and field coach Alan Whittaker. “She is one of the top sprinters in the state, has a tremendous work ethic both on the track and in the classroom.”
For the first time in 29 years, Louisiana Tech will compete in the NCAA Baseball Regionals as the Bulldogs were selected as a No. 3 seed at the Starkville Regional hosted by Mississippi State beginning Friday and running through Monday.
With the Bulldogs players and support staff surrounded by the Tech faithful at the team’s watch party in the Davison Athletics Complex, the room erupted as Tech’s name appeared on the TV screen opposite Cal State Fullerton.
Tech is one of four teams from Conference USA to receive a regional berth along with Florida Atlantic, Rice and Southern Miss.
