2011-12 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBAKKBALL

All-American

Teresa Weatherspoon played with a fire and passion that few people possess during her four-year career at Louisiana Tech (1984-88). She led the Lady Techsters to four NCAA Tournaments, two Final Fours and the 1988 National Championship title while earning Kodak All-American honors as a junior and senior. During her four year career, Spoon led LA Tech to a mark of 118-14 and was awarded the 1988 Wade Trophy as the nation’s top player.

Gold Medalist

Following her LA Tech career, Teresa Weatherspoon played for the US National Team in two Olympics – the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea and the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain. Weatherspoon led Team USA to a mark of 9-1 during those two Olympic competitions, including a perfect 5-0 record and the gold medal in 1988.

WNBA All-Star

Teresa Weatherspoon spent eight years in the WNBA where she played seven seasons for the New York Liberty and one season with the Los Angeles Sparks. She led New York to three WNBA championship series appearances. She was a five-time WNBA All-Star, a four-time all-WNBA second teamer and the two-time WNBA Defensive Player of the Year. She was named one of the 15 greatest players in WNBA history and inducted into the New York Liberty Ring of Honor in 2011.

WAC Champion

It’s no surprise to anyone that Teresa Weatherspoon has already made her mark on the Lady Techster program in just three short years. After being named interim head coach in February of 2009, Spoon led the Lady Techsters to the 2009 Western Athletic Conference regular season title, the 2010 WAC Tournament title and the 2011 WAC regular season title. Tech has earned postseason berths all three years.

As a senior Gresham led the Lady Techsters to their best season in history while garnering numerous athletic and academic awards. She earned her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology.

Louisiana Tech baseball letterwinner Clint Ewing earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, graduating with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. Ewing was named Academic All-American and was one of four runner-ups for the 2011 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award which goes to the nation’s top senior who shows excellence in four areas – community, classroom, character and competition.

Lisa Merritt and BRAD HERMAN team up in the Louisiana Tech athletics academic center to help the University’s studentathletes excel in the classroom and ultimately earn their degrees, something that is the No. 1 goal for the administration and coaches at Tech.

“One of the reasons I chose Louisiana Tech four years ago was because of its academic reputation, and it has more than lived up to my expectations. It’s a first-class institution with first-class people.”

2011-12 SEASON OUTLOOK

52

For the second straight year, Louisiana Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon is in the precarious position of trying to replace an All-American go-to player – this time with the graduation of 2011 Western Athletic Conference player of the year Adrienne Johnson. Johnson, who averaged 21.9 points per game as a senior and ended her career as the fifth leading scorer in the program’s storied history, is just one of four seniors that ended their LA Tech careers last March walking off the CenturyTel Center floor after another NCAA Tournament appearance. That foursome also led Tech to a 24-8 record, the WAC regular season title, the program’s 1000th victory and the postseason berth. In all Tech graduated its top two scorers from a year ago (Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey averaged 11.4 points per game), its top three-point threat in Brietta Thomas and its back-up point guard in Martina Holloway. Weatherspoon is the first to admit that this year’s team will have a different flavor to it. “What I see different from the teams of the past two years is everybody can contribute at any time,” Weatherspoon said. “Our freshmen are impact players; immediate impact players. This year we won’t have players looking at just one player to get it done in crucial times. There will be numerous players who can get it done. I think

www.LATechSports.com

we could have four or five players in double figures. “You won’t see one player scoring 20 or 30 every night; instead, we will have numerous players scoring. When you talk about scoring, it could be anybody on the floor at any time.” Tech returns seven letterwinners, including three starters in Jasmine Bendolph, Whitney Jones and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson, and welcomes five talented newcomers in red-shirt junior Brittany Hardy and freshmen Kanedria Andrews, Whitney Frazier, Courtney Hayes, and Savanna Langston. Weatherspoon, who was named one of the 15 greatest players in the history of the WNBA this summer, said she likes what she has seen from her players through individual workouts and official team practice. “I can honestly say that I’ve been pleased with how every player, every day has given everything they have from every workout to every early morning conditioning session to every preseason practice,” said Weatherspoon, who is 56-19 during her first three years as the head coach. “That has been so pleasing for me as a coach. Every day our players are coming to practice wanting to get better. I’ve seen leadership from our seniors down to our freshmen. It’s a pleasure to coach kids who are willing and eager to get better.” However, with almost half of her

roster comprised of players who have never touched the floor in a Division I college game, the Hall of Fame coach and her staff have their work cut out for them leading up to the season opener Nov. 11 against Missouri State. “It’s a lot of teaching,” Weatherspoon said. “You can’t assume anything. You have to realize that every person coming back and every newcomer are just empty vessels and as a coach you must fill that vessel. They are all ears. They are willing to do everything I ask of them. There is a lot of teaching going on now, and it is going well. The (players) are picking things up very quickly. They have an aggressive nature about them that I like. They go at things hard. I like that.”

Point Guard Louisiana Tech has the luxury of returning a three-year veteran at the point guard position in Jasmine Bendolph while adding a talented, maturebeyond-her-years freshman in Courtney Hayes. Bendolph has 70 starts under her belt during her Louisiana Tech career as the Mobile, Alabama native has recorded 335 career assists and is annually ranked as one of the WAC leaders in assist-to-turnover ratio. Despite struggling from beyond the arc last year (25-97) for the first time in her career, Bendolph earned

The Lady Techsters have a plethora of options at the two- and three-guard positions this year as LA Tech has a good mix of experience and youth. Seniors Whitney Jones, Kiara Young and Angie Felton are joined by junior Brittany Hardy, sophomore Jelena Vucinic and freshman Kanedria Andrews and will give Weatherspoon a variety of skill-sets to choose from on a game-by-game, situation-by-situation basis. Jones enters her sixth year in Division I basketball after earning a medical redshirt following injuries that limited her to eight and seven games respectively in each of her first two years in college. The multi-dimensional West Monroe native is already a member of the 1,000-point club at Louisiana Tech and

has an opportunity to have a break-out year with the graduation of so many of Tech’s offensive threats from a year ago. She averaged 10.0 points per game and led the Lady Techsters with 43 three-pointers on the year. “I believe Whitney will have a big season for us at the two position,” Weatherspoon said. “She is one of the players that we need to have a big perimeter game. She can put the ball on the floor and get to the rim at any time against any one. “She has taken on the role of Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey and will be our defensive leader, defending the best. Consistency is big for her. She relied upon the ability of Adrienne and Shanavia (Dowdell) to get it done (the last two years) when she has the ability to be the go-to player.” Young will see time at both the guard and the forward position for the Lady Techsters. Although her natural position is on the wing, the versatile, athletic Young spent most of last year playing the four position for the Lady Techsters. The Rogersville, Alabama native averaged 5.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game while making five starts and seeing action in 29 games. Two of her biggest performances of the year came in two of Tech’s biggest wins as she recorded double doubles in road victories at Tulane and Fresno State. “I look for Kiara to have a breakout year for us,” said Weatherspoon about

Young, who had her knee scoped in late September. “For three years she has played out of position for me. She will still play at the four some but will also get more time at the three. With the offense we are running, you will see more of her versatility on the inside and outside. “She is a player with tremendous strength and power. She will be a utility player for us. It will be crucial for her to be hungry for the ball; we want her to score but most importantly she has to rebound for us.” After making the transition from the junior college level to Tech last year, Felton struggled at times in her first year playing Division I basketball. A pure outside shooter who possesses incredible range, Felton saw action in 24 games averaging 2.7 points and 1.4 rebounds while hitting on 13-of-39 three-pointers. Felton showed her offensive scoring ability early in the year, hitting on 4-of-5 shots, including a pair of threepointers, to score 10 points in 18 minutes in a close loss to eventual NCAA participant UALR. “Angie had a rough go last year and lost some confidence,” Weatherspoon said. “I think she has come back with a different mindset. She wants to contribute to the team. She is a tremendous shooter. She has the ability to put points on the board for us, but she has to be able to defend some of the better offensive players on the other end.

second team all-WAC honors, averaging 8.0 points, 4.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game. She also ranked as one of the league leaders at the charity stripe shooting 84 percent. “My leader,” Weatherspoon said. “She is one of two players (Kiara Young) that has been with me for four years. She understands that she is an extension of me as a coach on the floor. She has taken on a leadership role to make sure everyone is comfortable in every setting on and off the floor. She will be a focal point of this team and crucial to our success.” Hayes signed with the Lady Techsters after leading Centennial High School in Las Vegas, Nevada to a pair of Class 4A state championships titles during her career. She was named the Nevada state player of the year as a senior by the Las Vegas Review Journal after averaging 10.6 points, 3.9 assists, 5.1 steals and 6.0 rebounds a game. Weatherspoon said that the most impressive aspect of the youngster’s game is her leadership on and off the floor and her work ethic. “Just a warrior,” Weatherspoon said. “She has a never-give-up mentality. A great floor leader. She is very vocal and gets everyone involved. There is not a day that I have to worry about what she will bring to the court. There is never a day that she doesn’t give you every ounce she has.”

Angie is what I call the silent assassin. She gets it done on the offensive end.” Vucinic enters her sophomore campaign as one of the X-factors on the team. The New Zealand native saw limited action as a freshman but made huge strides during the year in practice and spent all summer playing for her international team. The long-range bomber showed vast improvement on the defensive end throughout the year – she was called upon in the second half of Tech’s WAC Tournament semifinal win over Nevada to guard one of the top scorers in the country in Tahnee Robinson. She averaged 1.3 points in 11 games as a rookie. “What a difference,” Weatherspoon said. “She went home this summer and played on her international team. She just played basketball. She played, played and played. We will definitely be able to utilize her with her ability to shoot. She has also worked hard at finishing. “The amount of time she played

over the summer only helped her get better. She fits right in to what we are doing. Defensively, she is so much better. Her body frame is so strong. We ask her to score but also defend. She is one of those who can defend for all 94 feet. She will be important for the success of this team.” Hardy returns to campus this year after red-shirting last season while giving birth to her daughter, A’Niyah. During her time at Indian River State College (sophomore) and Central Florida Community College (freshman), she was one of the top three-point shooters in the country – hitting an incredible 59 percent (66-111) from beyond the arc one season. “She is a player that people are going to love to watch play,” Weatherspoon said. “She is strong and powerful. She gets to the rim and finishes. Her three-point range is unbelievable; NBA-range. She is a slasher. We will work a little with her on the defensive end. Her work ethic is unbelievable and her desire to be great is unbelievable. What she brings is that swagger that we all need. With the loss of Brietta Thomas last year, her ability to shoot the basketball will be big for us.” Andrews signed with Louisiana Tech out of El Dorado High School in Arkansas where she – along with fellow Techster freshman teammates Whitney Frazier – led the Wildcats to a 28-3 record and the 2011 Arkansas Class 6A state title. During her time in high school where she earned all-district, all-area and all-state honors, she developed a reputation as a fierce competitor who excels on the defensive end of the floor. “She is a little timid at the moment,” Weatherspoon said. “We see her as another Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey. She brings that type of defense that we need. She will be so important to us because of her defensive ability. She wants to defend the best and that is not something you usually see in a true freshman. We have the making of a shutdown defender in her. She is also a great slasher to the rim.”

Forwards With the graduation of Adrienne Johnson and Shanavia Dowdell the past two seasons, Louisiana Tech must

find a way to replace the production of the past three winners of the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year awards. Weatherspoon knows that production must be evenly divided as she doesn’t feel that this year’s team has one player that will average upwards of 20 points per game like the aforementioned due did over the past three seasons. Senior Shantale Bramble-Donaldson started 27 of 32 games last year for Louisiana Tech, after signing with the Lady Techsters out of Indian River State College. The 6-foot-1-inch forward averaged 7.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while shooting 50 percent from the field. While scoring in double figures nine times during the year, BrambleDonaldson’s top performance came in a non-conference win over Mississippi State when she scored 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Lady Techsters to the come-from-

15 rebounds and blocked six shots in the two-point loss to England. During her senior season, Langston averaged 17.2 points, 12.6 rebounds and 5.2 blocks while earning all-area and all-state honors. She was named the El Dorado News-Times Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year as a junior while also being named to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s all-state first team. “I just love that kid,” Weatherspoon said. “I really see her doing some really special things. She has a beautiful jump shot that is flawless. You don’t need to correct anything about what she does with the basketball. She has been taught very well, and has all the fundamentals. She is a fundamentally sound player. “I love fundamentally sound players. She sees cutters and will find cutters. She understands to be patient. She shoots it well from anywhere and can extend any defense. In our offense she will stretch defenses and can put it on the floor on go by people.” Senior Kiara Young (see OffGuards) will also see playing time in the post for the Lady Techsters.

outstanding player of the Arkansas High School Coaches Association AllStar game and the El Dorado NewsTimes Player of the Year. “She is an unbelievable athlete,” Weatherspoon said. “For her to be freshman you would never know it. This is the first year I’ve been around someone that is so talented and gifted at such a young age. She brings it every day and wants to get better every day. She comes in and watches film with me. She watches film and then goes out and works on what we ask of her. Then she brings it to practice. “She has a level of intensity that is unbelievable. If she’s not the freshman of the year in the WAC, something is wrong. It’s simply her fault because she isn’t bringing on daily basis. She is an immediate impact player. She has an Adrienne Johnson-like way that she plays. She probably shoots it a little bit better (than Adrienne), but she must become as consistent as Adrienne on a daily basis.” Langston prepped in the same city as Frazier and Andrews at nearby Parkers Chapel High School where she led the program to the Arkansas Class 2A state title game as a senior. In that contest, she scored 18 points, grabbed

behind win. “It was a true learning process for her last year,” Weatherspoon said. “You can tell her offseason workouts have paid off. She had a major (car) accident over the summer that set her back, but she has come back with a different mentality and approach. She wants to be a leader. “She saw Adrienne do it and wants to lead. She trust her training and teaching, and it’s obvious on the floor. She is well-schooled on the block. She can take her defender away from the block and then go by them. We want her to finish at the rim.” Red-shirt sophomore Tavasha Anderson provides the most size in the paint for Louisiana Tech as the 6-foor3-inch native of Grenada, Mississippi will be counted on for some important minutes this year. After missing her freshman season due to an injury, Anderson saw action in 12 games off the Tech bench last year where she averaged 1.3 points and 1.4 rebounds. Those numbers should improve exponentially this season as her playing time increases in the low post. “Tavasha has had a tremendous turn around,” Weatherspoon said. “She understands that all we ask of her is to be the best Tavasha Anderson she can be and nobody else. She has come back wanting to be a dominate post player. “She has worked hard, especially in preseason training and conditioning. The thing I like the most is she has finished everything. She has a different mentality and is more confident in herself. Tavasha will be a force for us in the paint. We demand her to score, demand her to rebound and demand her to defend.” A pair of true freshmen will also get an opportunity to make an immediate impact this year as forwards Whitney Frazier and Savanna Langston have impressed Weatherspoon in fall workouts. Frazier, who teamed with Kanedria Andrews last year to lead El Dorado High School to the Arkansas Class 6A state title, averaged 24.2 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.5 steals per game as a senior while leading the Wildcats to a 28-3 record. The 6-foot-0 Frazier garnered a plethora of postseason honors including being named the MVP of the Arkansas State Tournament, the most

Highlighted by a non-conference schedule that features 13 games against teams with winning records a year ago, Louisiana Tech will face a 29game regular season slate that features 15 non-conference contests and 14 Western Athletic Conference tilts. The Lady Techsters - who are coming off back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances - face this challenging schedule with a roster that is minus four seniors from last year’s team, including All-American Adrienne Johnson. “That shows you how much we believe in this team,” Weatherspoon said. “We have five freshmen, and we lost a lot in Adrienne Johnson and that senior class. That’s a lot to ask of these freshmen, but they are that gifted and talented. “It’s a matter of coming together and if they do that, great things will happen. The schedule is tough, and Sara Carter did a great job with piecing it together. We believe in this crew so much that we will play anyone. When they put it between the lines on a daily basis our belief and trust in them is just confirmed.” Tech’s non-conference slate includes games against 10 teams that won 20 or more contests last year, including Houston (26-6), Missouri State (24-11), Oral Roberts (23-11), Tennessee Tech (23-8), UALR (23-8), Tulane (23-11), St. John’s (22-11), Memphis (21-13), Prairie View (21-12), and Old Dominion (20-11). It also includes marquee match-ups against a trifecta of Southeastern Conference foes in LSU (19-13), Alabama (18-15) and Mississippi State (13-17). The Lady Techsters also face former Sun Belt Conference rivals in Arkansas State (18-14) and Western Kentucky (1517) as well as Big East foe Seton Hall (8-21). Nineteen of Tech’s 29 games will be against teams that participated in postseason a year ago. “You have to beat them. You can’t just play them,” Weatherspoon said. “It truly worked for us last year when we didn’t win the WAC Tournament. Because of what we did in our nonconference schedule, we still got a bid to the NCAA Tournament. We got (the philosophy) from Fresno State (the

year before). “I don’t want to play people and get beat and then lose all of our confidence. But our girls are capable of going out and playing (talented teams). They are capable of succeeding if they do what we ask. You have to play the best to be the best.” Tech opens the season Nov. 11 at home against Missouri State before going on the road for its first road test of the year Nov. 19 at Oral Roberts. The Lady Techsters compete in a pair of tournaments, including the Paradise Jam in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands Nov. 24-26 where they will face Seton Hall, Old Dominion and Alabama. The Lady Techsters also compete in the St. John’s Chartwell Holiday Classic in New York Dec. 17 and 18 where they will face Memphis and then either the host Red Storm or Prairie View A&M. Tech hosts a pair of familiar SEC teams in Mississippi State (Dec. 11) and LSU (Dec. 29) as well as in-state foe Tulane (Dec. 2). Defense of its Western Athletic Conference regular season title begins after New Year’s as the 14-game slate includes seven home contests, including the annual battle against league rival Fresno State on Feb. 4.

WEATHERSPOON HEAD COACH

Louisiana Tech boasts one of the legendary players in women’s basketball and one of the rising stars in the coaching business in head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. From her prep days at West Sabine High School to her national championship run at Louisiana Tech to her all-star career in the WNBA, Weatherspoon has never settled for second best ... and her resume proves it. The legendary point guard, who became the face of the WNBA for almost a decade, is already a

member of the Louisiana Tech Athletics Hall of Fame (1996), the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame (2010), the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame (2010) and the New York Liberty Ring of Honor (2011). Weatherspoon has succeeded on every level as a player and is now succeeding in her role at Louisiana Tech, following in the legendary footsteps of two other Hall of Famers in Leon Barmore and Sonja Hogg. After returning to her alma mater as the associate head coach in 2008, Weatherspoon took over the reigns of the program in February of 2009. Since then, she has led the program to three straight postseason appearances, including back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament. This past season, Weatherspoon guided LA Tech to the Western Athletic Conference regular season title with a 24-8 overall record (15-1 league record) and the program’s 27th trip to the NCAA Tournament. During the year the Lady Techsters posted impressive non-conference wins over SEC foes Georgia and Mississippi State and in-state foe Tulane - all coming on the road. The Lady Techsters also posted a pair of big overtime wins against WAC rival Fresno State, including a 94-92 triple overtime thriller in California in a game that saw All-American Adrienne Johnson foul out in regulation. She also guided Tech to the program’s 1000th victory this past season as the Lady Techsters joined Tennessee as one of only two women’s basketball program’s to ever accomplish the feat (Tech defeated Nevada in the semifinals of the WAC Tournament to reach the milestone). A two-time all-American during her playing days at LA Tech, Weatherspoon has recorded an overall record of 56-19 as head coach - 33-6 in conference play. During her first full season as head coach in 2009-10, she led Tech to a 23-9 record, the 2010 Western Athletic Conference Tournament title and the programs 26th appearance in the NCAA Tournament ... its first since 2006. Tech also took ACC champion and 9th-ranked Florida State down to the wire before falling on the Seminoles home floor in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Weatherspoon was rewarded for her efforts by being named the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year. Weatherspoon has also proven to be one of the top teachers of the game as she molded WAC Players of the Year Shanavia Dowdell and Adrienne Johnson into two of the nation’s premier players as both earned honorable mention All-American honors and were selected in the WNBA Draft following their senior seasons. The legendary collegiate and WNBA guard was named only the fifth head coach in the storied history of the Lady Techster basketball program during a press conference held in the Charles Wyly Athletic Center April 2, 2009. Weatherspoon earned the promotion after she took over the program as interim head coach on Feb. 9, 2009 and guided Louisiana Tech to a 9-2 mark down the stretch, the 2009 Western Athletic Conference regular season title and a WNIT appearance. She won her first eight games after being named interim head coach, an accomplishment that even two of her Hall of Fame predecessors Leon Barmore and

During her time in the league, Weatherspoon started 220 straight games and led the Liberty to three WNBA championship appearances in 1997, 1999 and 2000. She was a five-time WNBA All-Star, a four-time all-WNBA second teamer and the two-time WNBA Defensive Player of the Year.

Her professional playing experience started in 1988 when she went overseas to play. Weatherspoon spent six years in Italy -- where she was named a six-time all-star -- and two years in Russia. Although this is Weatherspoon’s first collegiate head coaching position, she served as the head coach of the America Basketball Association’s Westchester Phantoms in 2008. Weatherspoon earned her bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Tech.

professionally. And as impressive as her professional playing resume is, it doesn’t hold a candle to the one she built as a player at Louisiana Tech. During her Louisiana Tech playing career which spanned from 1984 through 1988, Weatherspoon was a two-time Kodak All-American (1987, 1988) and won the prestigious Wade Trophy as the top player in the country during her senior season. In fact as a senior, Weatherspoon earned an incredible trifecta as she was named the state player of the year, the American South Conference Player of the Year and the national player of the year. In that same year (1988), Weatherspoon won a national championship title -- LA Tech defeated Auburn 56-54 in the NCAA title game -- and an Olympic gold medal as part of the US National Team. She led the Lady Techsters to a mark of 118-14 during her career and two national championship game appearances in 1987 and 1988, earning spots on the All-Final Four teams both years. She was instrumental in leading Tech to a remarkable second half comeback against Auburn to claim the 1988 National Championship Title. Weatherspoon -- whose No. 11 jersey is retired at LA Tech -- was named to the NCAA Women’s Basketball Team of the Decade for the 1980’s. A member of the 1,000-point club (1,087) at LA Tech, she still ranks No. 1 in career assists (958) and career steals (411). She also earned distinction in USA Basketball circles, leading the US to the gold medal in the 1988 Olympics and the bronze medal in the 1992 Olympics. She also earned gold medals in the 1986 World Championships, the 1986 Goodwill Games and the 1987 World University Games. Weatherspoon spent eight seasons as a player

Sonja Hogg couldn’t match in their first years. The win streak propelled Tech from fifth place to first place in only a three week span as the Lady Techsters claimed a share of the 2009 WAC regular season title. And although the winning streak was eventually snapped by a 91-88 overtime loss to Nevada in the semifinals of the 2009 WAC Tournament, Tech still earned a postseason berth in the WNIT where it dismantled Conference USA champion SMU before falling to Illinois State in the second round. The combination of Weatherspoon’s success on the sideline, legendary status as a player in the Columbia blue uniform in the 1980s, and reputation as one of the WNBA’s all-time greatest players, made the decision an easy one for Tech administrators. Weatherspoon announced her decision to return to LA Tech as the associate head coach during an emotional speech at the annual Lady Techster Basketball Appreciation Banquet April 11, 2008 in news that energized the fan base. One year later, the Pineland, Texas native took over the reigns of the second winningest program in the history of the game.

Assistant Coach

David Caputo joins the Louisiana Tech women’s basketball coaching staff after three highly-successful seasons as the head coach at Indian River State College in Florida. Caputo, who will be in charge of the post players development and assisting with recruiting and defensive schemes, has been successful as both an assistant coach and head coach on both the men’s and women’s side as well as at all levels of intercollegiate basketball. “He is an Italian guy that people are going to love,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “He is just full of energy. The one thing that I like the most ... yes he is able to coach and yes he is able to develop players ... but the thing I like the most is his emotions about being a part of this program and this staff. He told me `Coach, this is my dream job to be with you at Louisiana Tech.’ Most recently, the 32-year-old served as the head coach at Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, Florida where he helped lead the program to three straight Southern Conference championships and three trips to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I Region VIII Elite 8. During the past three years at Indian River State College, Caputo recorded a mark of 54-26, setting a school record for wins in a three-year period while also earning national rankings during the past two seasons - including as high as No. 12 in 2009-10 when he was named the Southern Conference Coach of the Year. Caputo is also very familiar with the LA Tech program as two of his former Indian River State players are current Lady Techsters as Shantale Bramble-Donaldson and Brittany Hardy played for him prior to signing to play in Ruston. The duo were just two of 12 players that Caputo had sign Division I scholarships during his three years in Fort Pierce. Prior to his time at Indian River State College, Caputo served as the assistant women’s coach at Florida Atlantic during the 2007-08 season where he helped the program sign the 54th best recruiting class in the country. The class included the No. 1 ranked high school point guard in the state of Wisconsin, the 12th rated junior college power forward in the nation, the New Orleans high school player of the year and the 19th ranked junior college shooting guard. During the 2006-07 season, he served as the head women’s assistant coach at Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, Florida where he was instrumental in helping the program to a 22-9 record - its best mark in more than two decades. He was also a part of a coaching staff at SFCC that signed the 8th best recruiting class in the nation. Caputo’s college coaching career started in 2002 when he was hired as the associate head coach for the men’s basketball team at Division II Bloomfield College in New Jersey. During his four years at Bloomfield, the program earned two trips to the Division II national tournament - the first in the program’s history - while also winning three consecutive conference tournament championships and back-toback regular season titles. Caputo earned his bachelor’s degree from Montclair State in 2005.

During her playing days at South Alabama, Sara Carter was known for her intensity, fundamentals and drive to excel. Thus, it’s no surprise that head coach Teresa Weatherspoon has Carter on her staff working with the Lady Techster guards. After all, Weatherspoon was a player of that same mold. “Fire,” Weatherspoon said. “If I use one word to describe Sara, it’s firey. She is a great instructor. She is in charge of developing our guards, and they have a great understanding of what we expect from them because of the job she does. Everything offensively and defensively starts with the guard position, and so it’s vital that we have someone with Sara’s ability working with them.” Carter has served an instrumental in the Lady Techsters return to the top of the Western Athletic Conference and to the NCAA Tournament. In each of her three years on the LA Tech staff, Carter has helped guide the Lady Techsters to the postseason, including back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances the past two seasons. Tech captured WAC regular season titles in 2008-09 and 2010-11 and the WAC Tournament title in 2009-10. During her first three seasons at Louisiana Tech, Carter has worked closely with the Lady Techster guards, a group that has seen a vast improvement in assist to turnover ratio. This past season a pair of Tech guards earned all-conference honors as senior Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey was named first team and junior Jasmine Bendolph was named second team. In addition to Carter’s responsibilities with the Tech guards, she also oversees the players academic progress, serves as the liaison to academic coordinator Lisa Merritt, oversees scheduling, devises scouting reports and serves as the technology coordinator for the program, and assists in recruiting high school athletes in the southern region as well as all junior college recruiting. Carter came to Tech after working three years on the women’s basketball staff at Ole Miss. Carter was one of the key components to turning the South Alabama program into a contender during her playing days (2000-04). During her career, she was a two-time team captain and was named to the Sun Belt Conference preseason team prior to her senior season. The Gulfport, Miss. Native was a four-time recipient of the Sun Belt Conference all-academic award and also won the Wilma Rudolph Award (2004) as the Outstanding Woman Athlete of the Year.

LOUISIANA TECH 2010-11 Season in Review

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech senior forward Adrienne Johnson scored 25 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Lady Techsters to a 79-46 win over Prairie View A&M Saturday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. Johnson, a two-time first team all-Western Athletic Conference honoree, hit 8-of-13 field goals and 8-of-9 free throws while adding three steals in 31 minutes of action as Louisiana Tech coasted to the 33-point victory. “I think she got off to a little bit of a slow start because she was trying to figure out how they were going to guard her,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “However, once she figured it out, she just released her game. She is so good. She is stifling defensively. She is a guard in a posts body. She simply gets the job done night in and night out.” Johnson wasn’t the only Tech player who got off to a slow start as the Lady Techsters hit only 4 of their first 16 field goal attempts and led 16-8 with just over eight minutes to play in the first half. “I think we were a little impatient early,” Weatherspoon said. “We had those first game jitters. Once we got those out of the way, we settled down and played some comfortable basketball.” Despite the early scoring drought, Tech maintained a lead due to a stifling man-to-man pressure that forced 15 first half turnovers and 29 for the game. “Defensively, they did everything we asked of them,” Weatherspoon said. “We wanted to be more aggressive; stifling. We wanted to be everywhere with ball pressure and wing denials. We wanted them to work for everything they got. Our kids did that and that’s why we were successful.” Junior guard Angie Felton came into the game and provided a spark, scoring eight points down the stretch while also registering three assists. “From the beginning of the game, I thought we didn’t quite have the energy we needed,” Weatherspoon said. “I was trying to go to the bench and Angie Felton did the job. She was unbelievable. She can really stretch defenses with her range and she gets in the gaps and gets people open. I want to see all of our newcomers come in and realize they can be impact players for us.” Tech turned turnovers into easy baskets during the final minutes of the opening half as the eightpoint lead quickly ballooned into a 35-16 halftime advantage. The Panthers (0-1) shot only 24 percent (6-25) from the field in the opening half. After a Dominique Smith layup at the 18:07 mark of the second half cut the Tech lead to 39-23, the Lady Techsters put the game away with an 18-2 run over the next five minutes as Johnson scored 10 points while Whitney Jones buried back-to-back three-pointers. Prairie View A&M would get no closer than 27 the rest of the way as freshman Jelena Vucinic’s three-pointer with less than a minute to play provided the final margin. For the game, Tech shot 46 percent (28-61) from the field, 43 percent (6-14) from the three-point line and 85 percent (17-20) from the free throw line. Jasmine Bendolph and Jones each scored 10 points for Tech while Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey, Shantale Bramble-Donaldson and Felton added eight each. Latia Williams led the Panthers with 14 points while Siarra Soliz scored 11. Tech held Dominique Smith, the Panthers first team all-SWAC performer, to only two points on 1-for-4 shooting while forcing her into seven turnovers.

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon looked at the box score and smiled following her team’s 71-55 win over Western Kentucky Tuesday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. “I road our horse,” Weatherspoon quipped, referring to the 40 minutes that senior forward Adrienne Johnson played in the game. “We needed her for all 40 (minutes). She just means so much to our team on the floor, and I saw something tonight in her I’ve been waiting to see; a competitiveness, a fire. She wasn’t going to allow us to lose tonight.” Johnson scored 26 points and grabbed four rebounds against a Western Kentucky team that shuffled five players 6-foot-1 or taller in through the game in an effort to wear her and Louisiana Tech down. However, each time the Lady Toppers whittled what was as much as a 21-point second half lead down to 10 to 12 points, Johnson had an answer. “She’s special,” Weatherspoon said. “I like our team overall, but she is a special player and people will continue to see that as the year progresses.” Tech (2-0) jumped out to an early lead against Western Kentucky as Whitney Jones, Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey and Johnson drove time after time to score at the bucket. “We knew what Louisiana Tech wanted to do coming in here,” said WKU coach Mary Taylor Cowles. “We knew they wanted to put the ball on the floor and drive the gaps. We simply didn’t do a good job of stopping them early.” With Tech leading 16-3 on a pair of Jones free throws with 13:53 to play, Western Kentucky switched from their man-to-man defense to a fullcourt zone press. The move worked as LA Tech struggled to handle the pressure, something Weatherspoon said she would address in the coming days in practice. “We just didn’t do a good job of attacking it,” Weatherspoon said. “We weren’t strong with the basketball. We didn’t break the press and continue to attack the rim. I take responsibility for how we handled it and we will fix it.” Despite the struggles, an 8-0 run by Tech over the final three minutes of the half, including five points by Johnson, sent the Lady Techsters into the halftime locker room leading 33-17. Junior guard Jasmine Bendolph then hit a three-pointer on the opening possession of the second half as Tech quickly pushed the lead to 21 at 4019 with 17:07 to play. However, WKU wouldn’t go quietly as the Lady Toppers continued to pressure and continued to claw and scratch and fight over the final half. A LaTeira Owens jumper with 12:15 to play cut the Tech lead to 42-28 before Johnson answered with a conventional three-point play. After Tech pushed the lead back out to 21 at 5433 on another three-point play by Johnson with 8:33 to play in the game, WKU made one last run, cutting the Lady Techsters advantage down to 10 at 57-47 on a Janae Howard three-pointer with 5:06 to play. Johnson picked up her fourth personal foul with 6:44 to play while Wysinger-Mackey picked up her fourth less than one minute later. However, the two seniors were able to stay in the game without picking up their fifth as Weatherspoon’s team continued to answer. Tech used good free throw shooting and a couple of big three-pointers by senior guard Brietta Thomas down the stretch to seal the win. In addition to Johnson’s big night, Jones scored 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds while Wysinger-Mackey and Bendolph each added 10 points. Tech held WKU’s Arnika Brown, a first team all-Sun Belt Conference selection, to zero points in

just 13 minutes of action as Brown was constantly frustrated all night long. Hope Brown led the Toppers with 13 points although the senior guard was pressured into nine turnovers. The Lady Techsters shot 43 percent (24-56) from the field, 40 percent (4-of-10) from the threepoint line and 76 percent (19-25) from the free throw line. WKU hit 42 percent (22-52) from the field, 50 percent (5-10) from the three-point line and 50 percent (6-12) from the free throw line. The Lady Toppers outrebounded Tech 40-31. UALR 59, Louisiana Tech 55 Nov. 19, 2010 • Jack Stephens Center LITTLE ROCK - Chastity Reed scored 19 second half points and hit the biggest shot of the game to lead Arkansas-Little Rock to a 59-55 win over Louisiana Tech Friday night at the Jack Stephens Center. With the game tied and the shot clock running down, UALR forward Hannah Fohne shot an air ball that Trojans guard Asriel Rolfe pulled down underneath the basket. Rolfe then promptly fired the ball out to the top of the circle to Reed who buried her first three-pointer of the season to give UALR a 52-49 lead with 2:51 to play. The Trojans would not trail again as they won for only the second time in eight tries in the series both wins coming in Little Rock. “(UALR) made some plays down the stretch; hustle plays,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “They have a good team. However, we didn’t do the little things all night that we needed to do in order to win a game on the road against a good team. We tell our kids all the time to always do the little things. Tonight, we didn’t and it cost us.” Early in the game it looked as though the game wouldn’t come down to the final few minutes as UALR jumped out to a 19-6 lead as a three-pointer by Taylor Ford at the 13:14 mark of the opening half gave the Trojans a 13-point lead. During that opening run, Tech committed seven turnovers while UALR hit seven of its first 11 shots from the field. After a 30-second timeout by Weatherspoon, the Lady Techsters (2-1) showed some life using a 16-2 run over the next eight minutes to take a 22-21 lead on a layup by senior forward Adrienne Johnson. During the run, Johnson scored eight points while Jasmine Bendolph and Angie Felton each hit big three-pointers as Tech recovered from the initial onslaught. “I thought we showed some perseverance in the way we came back,” Weatherspoon said. “We settled down, ran our offense and made some plays on both ends of the court.” Behind a stellar defensive effort from Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey, Tech held Reed to only two points in the opening 20 minutes of play as UALR led 29-28 in the halftime locker room. Meanwhile, Johnson erupted for 16 of her game-high 23 points in the first half. The second half was more of the same as the two teams continued to trade punches with neither team building more than a seven-point lead. A Fohne layup with 12:51 to play in the game gave UALR a 4134 advantage before the Lady Techsters once again made a run. This time a 14-6 run over the next six minutes capped by Brietta Thomas’ three-pointer gave LA Tech a 48-47 lead. After a Wysinger-Mackey layup and a Reed free throw tied the score at 49-49, setting the stage for Reed’s big three. For the game, Tech shot 41 percent (22-54) from the field while holding UALR to 38 percent (22-58). However, 20 turnovers by the Lady Techsters ultimately spelled doom.

Houston 70, Louisiana Tech 66 Nov. 23, 2010 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Houston overcame a 16-point second half deficit to defeat Louisiana Tech 70-66 Tuesday night before 1,552 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. With the Lady Techsters leading 54-38 after a Whitney Jones layup at the 14:17 mark of the final period, the Cougars (3-0) turned up the defensive pressure and held LA Tech to only 12 points the rest of the way. Tech hit only 6-of-21 shots down the stretch while committing seven turnovers. Courtney Taylor’s steal of a Jasmine Bendolph pass resulted in an uncontested layup that gave the Cougars a 67-66 lead with 59 seconds to play. It was the first lead of the game by UH since 12:16 to play in the first half when the Cougars led 13-10 before a three-pointer by Jones tied the score. “This was unacceptable,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We didn’t do anything right tonight. We set forth a game plan every day in practice and every game. Until our players start to execute the game plan, we aren’t going to be the basketball team we are capable of being. I can promise you one thing though. Our coaches and players are going to work hard and give everything we have from this point forward in practice to get better.” The contest was full of runs as Tech jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead before Houston called a timeout less than two minutes into the contest. Following the timeout, Houston answered with a 13-0 run to grab a five point lead as Tech committed seven turnovers during the stretch.

However, the Lady Techsters responded and used an 11-0 run to grab a 19-13 lead. Adrienne Johnson, who became the first LA Tech player to ever start the season with four straight 20-plus point games, scored 20 of her game-high 26 points in the opening half to lead the Lady Techsters to a 36-28 halftime advantage. Tech came out of the halftime locker room and continued its command of the game, using a couple of big three-pointers by reserve guard Martina Holloway to push the advantage out to 16 at 54-38. However, UH applied defensive pressure and registered 19 steals in the game which resulted in 21 points, including 15 points off turnovers down the stretch when the game was on the line. Tech, which hit 10 of its first 12 free throws in the game, also missed three straight front ends of one-and-ones in the second half when it was attempting to hold onto the lead. “I give a lot of credit to Houston,” Weatherspoon said. “Those kids never quit fighting. However, we didn’t help ourselves in any way tonight.” Jones scored 11 points for Tech while Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey added seven points and 10 rebounds and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added six points and 11 boards. Tech outrebounded Houston 52-38 on the night. Porsche Landry scored 20 points for Houston, including 16 in the second half, while Taylor added 19 points and 11 rebounds. Missouri State 62, Louisiana Tech 53 Nov. 27, 2010 • John Q. Hammons Arena SPRINGFIELD, Missouri - Adrienne Johnson scored 19 points and grabbed 12 rebounds but Louisiana Tech continued its offensive struggles falling 62-53 at Missouri State Saturday afternoon at the John Q. Hammons Arena. Despite holding Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year Casey Garrison in check most of the afternoon, Tech (2-3) fell for the third straight time after shooting only 32 percent (21-66) from the field, 27 percent (7-26) from the three-point line and 33 percent (4-12) from the free throw line. Garrison, who entered the game averaging 28.3 points per game, scored 15 points as Tech held her to only 4-of-9 shooting for the game. Garrison did hit all seven of her free throws in the contest. After leading 22-16 in the first half, the Lady Techsters saw Missouri State (3-1) use a 15-4 run to close the first half as the Bears held a 31-26 halftime advantage. Missouri State built the lead up to 11 points at 51-40 with 6:58 to play before Tech made one final run as Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey’s three-pointer from the top of the key with 3:25 to play cut the advantage to 53-50. After a defensive stop on the other end, the Lady Techsters had a chance to tie the game up but Jasmine Bendolph misfired on a 22-footer from the top of the key with 2:36 to play. Missouri State outscored Tech 9-3 the rest of the way for the win. In addition to Johnson’s second double double of the year, Whitney Jones scored 11 points and grabbed five rebounds. Missouri State outrebounded LA Tech 54-41 in the game and outscored the Lady Techsters 32-16 on points in the paint. Louisiana Tech 69, Miss State 61 Dec. 1, 2010 • Humphrey Coliseum STARKVILLE, Miss. - Whitney Jones scored 20 points and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson came into her own with 14 points as Louisiana Tech snapped a three-game losing streak, defeating Mississippi State 69-61 Wednesday night at Humphrey Coliseum. With Tech (3-3) trailing 36-28 with 14:32 to play

on a layup by Judith Tabala, Weatherspoon called a timeout and went to a zone defense. The move paid off as Mississippi State struggled against it while Jones and Bramble-Donaldson scored nine straight points to ignite a 20-4 run as the Lady Techsters grabbed a 48-40 lead. “We wanted to change things up,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We had allowed (Mary Katherine Govero) a couple of open looks against our man and she made us pay. We felt we needed to slow things down for them offensively. It wasn’t perfect, but it worked for us.” After pushing the advantage out to 59-48 on a three-pointer by Jones with 5:37 to play, Mississippi State made a late run closing the cap to 62-58 on a Tabala layup with 2:48 remaining in the game. However, Adrienne Johnson hit a jumper and Bramble-Donaldson followed it up with another basket to seal the victory for the Lady Techsters. “This was the effort we have been looking for the last few weeks,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “You could see the kids were playing hard, having a good time and playing well. We ran our offense. We hit shots. We had everyone step up and this was the result.” Bramble-Donaldson finished with 14 points and seven rebounds while Johnson added 13 points and eight rebounds and Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey chipped in with 12 points and seven rebounds. Tech shot 44 percent for the game, including 54 percent (19-35) in a second half that saw it score 49 points. Tabala led Mississippi State with 15 points while Diamber Johnson added 14 points and Porsha Porter 10 points. Louisiana Tech 52, Southern 44 Dec. 12, 2010 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Louisiana Tech overcame a seasonhigh 27 turnovers to down Southern 52-44 Sunday afternoon before 1,722 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. Adrienne Johnson led Tech with 19 points and nine rebounds while Whitney Jones added 12 points and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson recorded her first career double double with 10 points and 13 rebounds as Tech won for a second straight time. “Twenty-seven turnovers is unacceptable,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “They didn’t do anything we didn’t expect them to do. We have to do a better job of taking care of the basketball; or protecting the ball and our space.” Tech (4-3) came out of the gates strong, taking a 21-5 lead with 7:51 to play on a free throw by Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey. However, the Lady Techsters committed 11 turnovers over the final eight minutes of the half as Jasmine Bendolph’s floater with 2:52 to play was the only bucket LA Tech would make during that timeframe. Southern took advantage of LA Tech’s sloppy play, cutting the deficit down to 26-17 at the break. Tech shot 44 percent (8-18) from the field in the opening half, including 10-of-14 from the free throw line while holding Southern to a mere 19 percent (631) from the field. The Lady Techsters outrebounded Southern 25-11 in the opening half. The two teams came out of the second half locker room trading buckets as Tech held a 37-25 advantage when Johnson picked up her fourth personal foul with 13 minutes to play in the game. Weatherspoon took her leading scorer out of the game and Southern cut the lead down to 39-32 on a layup by Jamie Floyd at the 8:36 mark of the game. However, two hustle plays on the offensive end of the floor by the Lady Techsters over the next few possessions led to easy layups by Wysinger-Mackey and Johnson as Tech pushed its advantage back out to 47-32 with just under four minutes to play. “We talk to our players all the time about valuing every possession,” Weatherspoon said. “Do the little things; hustle plays. We had a couple of big

ones late that helped us. Even when things aren’t going your way, you can always make hustle plays.” One final run by Southern cut the deficit down to 49-44 with under a minute to play before three free throws down the stretch sealed the win. Ashley Augerson led Southern (2-6) with 14 points. Tech shot 40 percent (17-43) for the game despite going 0-for-7 from beyond the arc.

and seven rebounds in only 12 minutes for Tech, which won for the third straight time. For the game, Tech shot 49 percent (33-67) from the field, 41 percent (7-17) from the three-point line but hit only 52 percent (11-21) of its free throws. Arkansas State hit just 27 percent (17-64) of its field goals, including only 2-of-19 from beyond the arc. Shania Hurst led the Red Wolves with 14 points while Shay Scott added 12 points and 10 rebounds. Louisiana Tech 78, Tulane 72 Dec. 17, 2010 • Fogelman Arena NEW ORLEANS - Jasmine Bendolph scored a season-high 17 points and Kiara Young added only her second career double double with 12 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Lady Techsters to a 78-72 win over Tulane at Fogelman Arena Friday night. With the nation’s 10th leading scorer in Adrienne Johnson saddled with foul trouble for most of the night, Young came off the Tech bench to hit 6-of-7 field goals, including 12-footer with 1:28 to play to up the Lady Techsters advantage to 70-67. Tech (6-3) hit 8-of-12 free throws in the final 60 seconds of play to hold off the Green Wave (7-2) rally as the Lady Techsters improved to 8-0 all-time against Tulane (7-2). Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey scored a seasonhigh 16 points, including 14 in the second half, while Whitney Jones added 12 points. Johnson, who entered the game averaging 22.0 points per game, scored eight points and grabbed eight rebounds in 23 minutes. Johnson picked up her third foul of the first half with over seven minutes to play and sat the rest of the half as Tech entered the halftime locker room tied at 30-30. The Franklin native then was whistled for her fourth foul with 17:26 to play in the game as head coach Teresa Weatherspoon pulled her with Tech leading 34-30. With Johnson on the bench, Tech didn’t miss a beat building as much as a 60-46 advantage with 8:33 to play on a layup by Wysinger-Mackey. However, a 10-0 run by the Green Wave cut the advantage to four before the Lady Techsters pushed it back out to double figures at 68-58 with 3:23 to play.

Tulane then made one final run, cutting the advantage down to 68-67 setting up Young’s big shot that ignited the final finish by the Techsters. Tech shot 51 percent (29-57) for the game, including 59 percent (17-29) in a second half that saw them outscore the Green Wave 48-42. Tech also outrebounded Tulane 53-26. Tiffany Aidoo led Tulane with 16 points while Olivia Grayson and Whitney Bibbins added 13 points each. LSU 68, Louisiana Tech 53 Dec. 19, 2010 • Pete Maravich Assembly Center BATON ROUGE - Courtney Jones scored 18 points and Katherine Graham added 17 points and 13 rebounds to lead LSU past Louisiana Tech 68-53 before 3,714 fans at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center Sunday afternoon. After LA Tech (6-4) had cut an 18-point second half deficit down to five at 48-43 on a pair of free throws by Kiara Young with 6:01 to play, Jones ignited a final LSU run by connecting on back-to-back threepointers as the Tigers used a 18-4 run over the next four minutes to put the game out of reach. Jones, who entered the game averaging only 3.8 points per game and 0-for-8 from beyond the arc on the year, came off the LSU bench and connected on 7-of-8 field goals, including all four three-pointers, in the win. “It amazes me how we can play at Tulane with such great energy and execute so well on Friday night, and then we come in here and don’t play with the same effort,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “If you leave (somebody like Courtney Jones) open, they are going to knock it down. That’s what she did. They took advantage of our mistakes defensively.” Tech came out of the gates strong, building an early 10-6 lead on an Adrienne Johnson jumper with 14:45 to play in the half. However, less than eight minutes into the contest Weatherspoon had all three of her starting guards on the bench with two fouls each. With Tech trailing 17-13 and just under nine minutes to play in the half, Johnson picked up her

2011-12 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL

RUSTON - Adrienne Johnson scored 23 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Whitney Jones added 17 points to lead Louisiana Tech to an 84-54 win over Arkansas State Wednesday night before 1,654 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. Tech (5-3) managed to do what no other team had accomplished all season long as they dominated Arkansas State (6-5) for all 40 minutes of play. Entering the contest, the Red Wolves four previous losses had been by three points to 15th ranked Iowa, six points in double overtime at SMU, 11 points at Missouri State, and 12 points to 18th ranked St. John’s. However, the Lady Techsters built a 22-point halftime lead and never looked back in winning for the 27th straight time in the series. “Our kids responded to the challenge we put before them this week,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon, who was furious following her team’s 52-44 win over Southern Sunday. “We were focused. We played under control. We executed, and we played with great effort. “Arkansas State is a very good basketball team. They run a lot of sets and make it tough on you defensively. They rebound the ball well; their 19 offensive rebounds were too many tonight but besides that we played well.” After watching her team commit 27 turnovers in Sunday’s win over the Jaguars, Weatherspoon harped all week on valuing the basketball. “We set a goal to have under 10 turnovers tonight,” Weatherspoon said. “We had 12. I can live with that because those were effort turnovers. It started with the play of (our point guard) Jasmine Bendolph. She knew she had not been playing like she is capable of playing and tonight it started with her being aggressive on the offensive end and getting us into our offense.” Bendolph, who had committed 24 turnovers in the last four games, ended the night with six points, four assists and only one turnover in 21 minutes of play. “That stat line doesn’t do justice to what she gave us tonight,” Weatherspoon said. However, it was Johnson and Jones who sparked the Techsters first half dominance as the duo combined for 28 points in the opening 20 minutes on 12-of-18 shooting. With Tech leading 36-24 with four minutes to play in the opening half and the game still well within doubt, Jones and Johnson combined to score nine points as Tech ended the half on an 11-1 run. Tech shot 56 percent (20-36) from the field in the opening 20 minutes of play while holding the Red Wolves to a mere 27 percent (9-34). Jones and Johnson then ignited an early run in the second half that saw the Lady Techsters push their lead to 67-37 on a Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey layup at the 12:26 mark. Weatherspoon emptied her bench with just over 10 minutes to play as the Tech reserves executed down the stretch to maintain the 30-point margin of victory. “I thought our bench relaxed and played well,” Weatherspoon said. “They don’t realize how important it is that they are able to come in and give us quality minutes in key situations. They came in and didn’t turn the ball over and continued to play with the same effort our starters began the game with.” Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added 10 points

second as Weatherspoon was forced to go to her bench one more time. “It was tough having almost all of our starting lineup sitting by me during the final 10 minutes of the first half,” Weatherspoon said. “I thought our bench did a descent job of keeping us in it in the first half but we had a couple of break downs late and it gave them the opportunity to take the 13-point lead into the half.” Tech hit only 9-of-31 field goals in the opening half, including 1-of-11 from the three-point line. LSU came out strong in the second half as a three-pointer by Adrienne Webb at the 18:42 to mark gave the Tigers a 40-22 advantage. However, behind the play of Johnson, Tech started mounting a comeback as back-to-back three-pointers by the Franklin native cut the LSU lead to 42-35 with 10:21 to play in the game. “When you are down by 18 on the road and momentum is going their way and the crowd is in it and they are full of emotion, you have to settle in and try to get a run of your own started,” Weatherspoon said. “We did a pretty decent job of getting runs started and gaining momentum and emotion and eventually got the lead down to five. But they withheld and got a run of their own going and took advantage of our defensive mistakes.” Johnson led Tech with 17 points while Young and Jasmine Bendolph each added eight points each. For the game, Tech shot just 28 percent (17-61) from the field, 19 percent (3-16) from the three-point line and 80 percent (16-20) from the free throw line. LSU hit 44 percent (23-52) from the field, 41 percent (7-17) from the three-point line and 65 percent (15-23) from the free throw line. The Lady Tigers outrebounded LA Tech 43-34. Louisiana Tech 77, Georgia 62 Dec. 29, 2010 • US Century Bank Arena MIAMI - Adrienne Johnson scored a seasonhigh 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Louisiana Tech got a huge lift from its bench as the Lady Techsters downed Georgia 77-62 at the U.S. Century Bank Arena. The win by the Lady Techsters (7-4) sends them into tomorrow’s championship game of the 2010 Fun and Sun Classic against Marquette (11-2), who defeated Florida International 73-67 in the day’s first game. “This was as complete an effort as we’ve had this year,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “Georgia is a very good basketball team and a very well-coached basketball team. We still have a lot of areas we can improve in. We have another challenge tomorrow in Marquette. “We need and want every challenge we can

get right now. We want to continue to test ourselves against very good teams. This will only help us once we get into conference play.” Tech came out of the gates strong as Georgia took its two and only leads of the entire game early at 1-0 and 3-2 before a Shantale Bramble-Donaldson layup with 16:36 to play in the first half started a 6-0 Lady Techster run. The five-point lead at 8-3 was the biggest of the half for Tech until a Johnson jumper with 2:28 to play pushed it out to 37-30. The final play of the first half might have been a microcosm of the game as Tech outhustled Georgia for three offensive rebounds in a 10-second span as Whitney Jones short jumper in the lane with six seconds to play gave the Lady Techsters a 41-33 halftime advantage. Kiara Young came off the bench in the first half and provided a spark, scoring four points and grabbing seven rebounds. She ended the game with nine points and eight rebounds. With Tech leading 47-43 with 16:36 to play, senior guard Martina Holloway came on to ignite a 13-2 Tech run hitting on a pair of three-pointers. Whitney Jones three-pointer with 13:07 to play in the game gave the Lady Techsters a 60-45 advantage. “I was proud of Martina,” Weatherspoon said. “We talked to her earlier today about responding to situations and that is what she did. She came out tonight and played some important minutes and hit some big shots. “I thought our bench as a whole came out and played well. We still have a few kids who have to step up but we will just keep working hard and we will eventually get there.” Georgia (9-3) would get no closer than 10 points the rest of the way as Tech won for the fifth time in six games. The Lady Techsters also improved to 6-1 all-time against Georgia. Johnson hit 13-of-17 field goals, including 3-of3 from the three-point line, while adding four assists, three steals and two blocks in 40 minutes. “Adrienne Johnson does everything effortlessly,” Weatherspoon said. “She is so graceful on the floor. I’ve said all along that she is one of the best players in this country. I think she continues to prove that every night.” Jones added 14 points and Bramble-Donaldson added 10 points and six rebounds. Jasmine James led Georgia with 20 points. Tech shot 52 percent (33-64) for the game, including 7-of-19 from the three-point line. Georgia shot 42 percent (26-62) from the field. Louisiana Tech’s 77 points were the most the Lady Bulldogs have surrendered this season, and the Lady Techsters’ 51.6 percent shooting effort from the floor represented the first time a Georgia foe has made half their shots. Tech also won the rebound count, 41-30.

MIAMI - Marquette shot 65 percent from the field to defeat Louisiana Tech 83-75 in the championship game of the 2010 Fun and Sun Classic hosted by Florida International Thursday at the U.S. Century Bank Arena. The Golden Eagles (12-2) hit 32-of-49 field goals and 15-of-18 free throws to hold off the Lady Techsters (7-5), who led for the majority of the first half before surrendering the lead late in the first half. “We didn’t defend,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “It’s as simple as that. I can’t say we didn’t have good energy, but we just didn’t defend and get stops. We can’t allow any team to shoot 65 percent and score 83 points and expect to win.” Tech, which knocked off Georgia 77-62 on Wednesday to advance to the championship game, shot 44 percent for the game but hit only 8-of-17 free throws to fall for the fifth time this season. The 75 points scored by the Lady Techsters were the second most given up by Marquette this year, falling four points shy of the 79 scored by topranked Connecticut. Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey led LA Tech with 19 points, six assists, four steals and four rebounds in 40 minutes of action and joined teammate Adrienne Johnson on the all-tournament team. Johnson, who scored 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the win over Georgia, recorded another double double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. However, Weatherspoon said it was her team’s inability to get Johnson involved in the second half that was one of the reasons for the setback. “Our offense has to go through Adrienne Johnson,” Weatherspoon said. “She has to touch the ball. She doesn’t have to shoot it, but she needs touches. We went away from what was working for us early. We were going inside out and having success. Then we became a perimeter basketball team.” Tech built a 16-10 first half lead before Marquette used a 7-0 run to claim its first lead of the day at 17-16 with 10:40 to play in the opening period. A Johnson layup at the 5:17 mark of the first half gave the Lady Techsters a 31-30 advantage - its last of the game. Marquette used an 11-4 run over the next three minutes to build its largest lead of the first half a 4135 before a Johnson layup and Kiara Young layup cut the deficit to 42-39 at the half. The two teams continued to battle back and forth in the second half as the score was tied six different occasions, the last time coming at 58-58 with 11:47 to play on a Johnson jumper. However, Marquette used a 7-0 run to retake the lead and the closest the Lady Techsters would get was 71-68 with 5:01 to play on a Wysinger-Mackey three-pointer. Jasmine Bendolph and Young each scored 10 points and grabbed four rebounds while Bendolph added seven assists. Tatiyana McMorris led Marquette with 19 points while Jasmine Collins added 15 points. Louisiana Tech 83, Southern Miss 61 Jan. 2, 2011 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Adrienne Johnson scored a careerhigh 34 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lift Louisiana Tech to an 83-61 win over Southern Mississippi before 1,513 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Sunday afternoon. Johnson recorded her third double double of the week, connecting on 14-of-23 field goals, 1-of-3 three-pointers and 5-of-6 free throws while adding two steals and one assist in 37 minutes of play. With the win, LA Tech (8-5) wraps up the nonconference portion of its schedule which ranked in


LOUISIANA TECH

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Louisiana Tech overcame a sluggish first half and pulled away over the final 20 minutes to down San Jose State 69-34 in the Western Athletic Conference opener for both teams at The Events Center in San Jose. Adrienne Johnson led Tech with 16 points, six rebounds, four steals and three blocks while Whitney Jones added 11 points. Jones, a West Monroe native, hit a milestone during the game, becoming the 40th player in Techster history to score at least 1,000 career points. In an opening half that saw the Lady Techsters struggle offensively, Tech (9-5, 1-0 WAC) shot only 28 percent (9-32) from the field and entered the halftime locker room with a 27-18 lead. “We talked to our players leading up to the game about not overlooking this game and this team,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “In the first half we didn’t come out with the energy that we needed. I give a lot of credit to San Jose State. Those kids played their tails off. “A lot of times when teams are struggling they become more and more hungry to win. That’s what San Jose State was ... a hungry basketball team.” Tech led 19-18 after a jumper by Spartan guard AJ Newton with 6:06 to play in the half before holding San Jose State scoreless the rest of the way. Kiara Young’s three-pointer with 40 seconds to play in the first half capped an 8-0 run and gave the Lady Tech-

Louisiana Tech 74, Hawaii 69 (OT) Jan. 8, 2011 • Stan Sheriff Center HONOLULU - For the third time in six years, Louisiana Tech went to overtime in Honolulu as the Lady Techsters overcame a valiant effort by Hawaii in a 74-69 victory at the Stan Sheriff Center Saturday night. Tech (10-5, 2-0 WAC) shot only 34 percent (2367) for the game and was outrebounded 52-35 by the Rainbow Wahine (6-9, 0-2 WAC) but the Lady Techsters connected on 23-of-27 free throws, including all seven in the extra period, to pick up the win. With the victory, Tech improves to 23-3 all-time against Hawaii including a 13-2 mark in Honolulu. “We are a long way away from being a team,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “I find it hard to find any good out of this game. The one thing I can say is when we needed to make plays down the stretch we found a way to make them. “I give Hawaii a lot of credit. They played well. They made things difficult. I take nothing away from their effort. I do find a lot of fault in ours across the board.” Hawaii had multiple opportunities to put the game away, including a golden opportunity with 2.8 seconds to play in regulation. With Tech leading 6160, Hawaii freshman Kamilah Jackson was fouled and went to the line to shoot two free throws. However, Jackson misfired on the first attempt before connecting on the second to tie the game at 61-61 and send it into overtime. In the extra period, Tech took an early 63-61 lead on a layup by guard Martina Holloway, who finished with a career-high 13 points in 27 minutes. With the game tied at 67-67, senior guard Whitney Jones hit a driving layup with 1:20 to play in the overtime period and then hit a free throw to complete the conventional three-point play and give LA Tech a 70-67 advantage. After two free throws by Hawaii guard Megan Tinnin with 57 seconds to play, Adrienne Johsnon missed on a contested layup and the Rainbow Wahine corralled the defensive rebound. Following a timeout, Hawaii forward Julita Bungaite missed on an open 18-footer with 17 seconds to play and Jones pulled down the defensive rebound. Hawaii fouled Holloway with 5.6 seconds to play as the Albuquerque native hit both free throws to up the LA Tech advantage to 72-69. The Rainbow Wahine had one last chance to tie it up but Tinnin’s three-pointer was off the mark and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson pulled down the defensive rebound and was fouled with one-tenth of a second to play to seal the Tech victory. Jones led Tech with 18 points, including 15 in

the second half and overtime, while Johnson added 15 points and nine rebounds. Holloway scored a career-high 13 points, including 6-of-6 at the free throw line, while Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey scored 11 points while playing all 45 minutes. Jackson led Hawaii with 18 points and 20 rebounds while Keisha Kanekoa added 11 points and Shawna-Lei Kuehu scored 10 points. Louisiana Tech 94, Fresno State 92 (3OT) Jan. 13, 2011 • Save Mart Center FRESNO - Brietta Thomas hit a three-pointer with 2.6 seconds to play in the third overtime to lift Louisiana Tech (11-5, 3-0 WAC) to a 94-92 win over Fresno State (11-6, 2-1 WAC) before 3,275 fans at the Save Mart Center Thursday night. It was the first triple overtime game in Louisiana Tech history and the second straight overtime game for the Lady Techsters, who defeated Hawaii 74-69 last Saturday night. With Tech trailing 92-91 in the third overtime period, the Lady Techsters called with 18 seconds to play to draw up a play. Following the timeout, Jasmine Bendolph missed on a jumper but Shantale Bramble-Donaldson pulled down the offensive rebound. After Bramble-Donaldson was stripped of the ball, Kiara Young batted the loose basketball out to Thomas who rose up and drilled the 20-footer from the left wing with 2.6 seconds to play. Fresno State, out of timeouts, inbounded the ball but Taylor Thompson’s desperation halfcourt shot was wide left as LA Tech snapped the Bulldogs 20-game regular season Western Athletic Conference winning streak. “I’m so proud of this team,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon, who saw her team play all three of the overtime periods without AllAmerican candidate Adrienne Johnson who fouled

sters the nine-point halftime advantage. Weatherspoon and Co. got off to a much better start in the second half scoring the first 10 points. San Jose State guard Sara Plavljanin’s jumper with 15:29 to play ended a more than 10-minute drought where the Spartans were without a field goal. Tech eventually pushed its lead to 48-21 on a free throw by Young with 11:00 to play as the Lady Techsters used the 29-3 run to gain the separation it needed. “I thought we really fed off the energy that Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey brought on the defensive end in the second half,” Weatherspoon said. “We settled down and played. I thought we settled for too many three-pointers in the first half and the game really, but the second half we were better at getting the ball inside.” Tech shot 52 percent (17-33) from the field in the second half while outscoring San Jose State 4216. For the game, Tech hit 40 percent (26-65) of its field goals, but connected on only 8-of-26 threepointers and 9-of-16 free throws.

the Top 25 in the country as far as difficulty and now prepares for its Western Athletic Conference opener at San Jose State Thursday at 7 p.m. CT. “I was pleased with how we played defensively for the most part,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “I thought our kids tried to execute our game plan. We weren’t perfect by any means but they went out there and gave the effort we needed. “I also thought we did a pretty good job of not turning the basketball over against their pressure. Fifteen (turnovers) is still more than we want but we are showing some improvement in that area.” For the game, Tech shot 46 percent (32-70) from the field, but hit only 6-of-23 from beyond the arc. “I thought early in the game we were settling for too many three-pointers,” Weatherspoon said. “I don’t know where that came from. We have to learn to make one more pass. Although most of the jumpers were open looks, a lot of times we could have gotten a better look with one more pass.” Tech scored the first six points of the game and never trailed as it improved to 4-1 all-time against the Golden Eagles (5-8). Behind a strong start from Johnson, who scored 16 of Tech’s first 22 points, the Lady Techsters took a 22-15 lead with 6:28 to play on jumper by the Franklin native. Leading 25-19, Johnson added another jumper and then Angie Felton hit a threepointer to give LA Tech its biggest lead of the first half at 30-19. Tech led 35-25 at the half. Southern Miss scored the first bucket of the second half to cut the lead to 35-27 but that was as close as the Golden Eagles would get as the Lady Techsters hit 52 percent (18-35) of their field goals in the final 20 minutes of play. The only question was whether Johnson would set a new career high. However, a 15-foot jumper from the elbow with 5:22 to play in the game gave Johnson 32 points, one more than her former careerhigh of 31 against SMU in 2008-09. In addition to Johnson’s big game, Whitney Jones and Martina Holloway each added eight points while Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey registered four points, seven rebounds, a career-high seven assists and three steals in 27 minutes. Tanesha Washington and Rachel Vigers led USM with 15 points each while Jameirra Faulkner added 13 points.

out of the game with 14 seconds to play in regulation. “We could have easily folded our tents at the end of regulation but every one of our kids showed a lot of heart. This is a big win for us. This is not an easy place to win. Fresno State is a very talented team and is very well coached. I hope we grew up some tonight.” Despite trailing by as many as 13 points on three separate occasions in the second half, Louisiana Tech was on the verge of winning in regulation. Bendolph sank two free throws with 38 seconds remaining to give LA Tech a 74-71 advantage. However, the Lady Techsters kept giving the Bulldogs extra opportunities. On three separate occasions in the final 25 seconds of regulation, Fresno State missed on a shot and LA Tech pulled down the defensive rebound. However, on each occasion LA Tech had the ball taken away - the final time proving costly. After a turnover by Tech guard Whitney Jones with 14 seconds to play, Fresno State’s Jaleesa Ross misfired on a long three pointer with six seconds to play and the loose basketball was batted out to Thompson who drained a 25-footer with less than a second to play to send the game into overtime. “We didn’t do a very good job down the stretch (of regulation) of taking care of the basketball; of being strong with the basketball,” Weatherspoon said. “I hope that we learn from this game how important it is to do all the little things. “There aren’t too many times that you look at a stat sheet where you turn the ball over 35 times and shoot as poorly as we did from the free throw line and still win. We have to improve in all of those areas. However, I’m still so proud of these kids.” In the first overtime, Tech never led but Bendolph hit a jumper with 1:12 to play to tie the game at 80-80. Both teams had opportunities to take the lead in the final 72 seconds but neither was able to as Hayley Munro’s desperation three-pointer at the buzzer was nowhere close. The second overtime saw both teams take twopoint advantages. With Fresno State leading 85-84, Bendolph hit a three-pointer with 1:58 to play to give the Lady Techsters an 87-85 advantage. However, Tech turned the ball over three times and Munro’s layup with 22 seconds to play tied the game at 87-87.

under the Lady Techster basket with seconds to play, sending the game into a third overtime period. In the final overtime, Tech took a 91-88 advantage on a Bendolph layup with 2:03 to play. However, Fresno State fought back to take a 92-91 lead on Marnique Arnold’s layup with 45 seconds remaining. After Young missed a driving layup with 28 seconds to play, Murno went to the free throw line with a chance to build on the Bulldogs advantage. However, she missed both and Tech pulled down the defensive rebound, setting up the dramatic finish and Thomas’ game-winning three. “I am not surprised at all the Bri hit the shot,” Weatherspoon said. “I knew the minute it left her hand that it was good. She shot it with confidence. She didn’t hesitate. She can really help us and we need her to continue to work hard and play with confidence.” Johnson led Tech with 23 points and nine rebounds while Young added a career-high 17 points, 12 rebounds and five assists. Wysinger-Mackey, who left the game in the final 55 seconds of the third overtime due to severe cramps, finished with 14 points, a career-high 15 rebounds and six steals. Jones and Bendolph each scored 13 points as five Techsters scored in double figures. Tech shot 44 percent (38-87) from the field, 6-of16 from the three-point line and 12-of-23 from the free throw line. Fresno State shot 40 percent (30-76) for the game and hit 11-of-30 three-pointers and 21-of-35 free throws. The Lady Techsters outrebounded Fresno State 62-49, including 25 offensive rebounds. Louisiana Tech 91, Utah State 74 Jan. 20, 2011 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Adrienne Johnson scored a careerhigh 36 points and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added a career-high 17 points to lead Louisiana Tech to a 91-74 win over Utah State in Western Athletic Conference action Thursday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. With the victory, LA Tech (12-5, 4-0 WAC) remains in sole possession of first place in the Western Athletic Conference standings as the Lady Techsters upped their winning streak to five.

Despite building an early 18-point lead midway through the first half, the Lady Techsters had to hit 10-of-10 free throws in the final 57 seconds of the game to finally seal the victory. “I just don’t get it,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “I don’t know what it’s going to take for us to understand we have to play 40 minutes of basketball. We are a really good team for 10 minutes here or 5 minutes there but we have to learn to put people away. Tonight we didn’t do that. “I have to give Utah State a lot of credit. They kept coming after us and coming after us. They never quit. However, we went away from what got us the early lead and there was really no excuse or reason for it.” Tech used some defensive pressure early in the game to force Utah State (8-9, 2-2 WAC) into 13 turnovers in the first 11 minutes of the contest as the Lady Techsters built an impressive lead. When Martina Holloway scored on a layup off a steal with 9:24 to play in the opening half, LA Tech led 26-8. However, that’s when the Aggies made their run as Tech committed seven turnovers the rest of the half as Ashlee Brown’s layup with only seconds remaining in the first half cut the Lady Techster advantage to 43-32 at the break. “We have to learn to protect the basketball,” Weatherspoon said. “We would beat them off the dribble and then forget the defender was behind us and they would come and knock the ball way. You always have to be aware of your surroundings.” Early in the second half it appeared as if the Aggies were going to really make a game of it as Utah State scored the first six points of the period to trim the margin to 43-38 on a pair of free throws by Brown, who finished with a game-high 24 points and 13 rebounds the visitors. However, a Brietta Thomas three-pointer with 18:19 to play ignited a 29-14 run over the next 11 minutes as LA Tech once again built what appeared to be a comfortable lead at 72-52 with 6:47 to play. The Aggies mounted one final run as Tech missed six of 11 free throws and committed five turnovers over the next five minutes as Utah State closed the gap to 81-74 on a pair of Devyn Christensen free throws with 1:11 to play. However, Johnson and Bendolph combined to go 10-of-10 at the charity stripe the rest of the way as Tech improved to 11-1 all-time against Utah State. Johnson hit 10-of-21 field goals and set a

MOSCOW, Idaho - Adrienne Johnson scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Louisiana Tech to a 63-56 win over Idaho in Western Athletic Conference action before 266 fans at Cowan Spectrum Thursday night. With the victory, LA Tech (14-5, 6-0 WAC) kept its one-game lead over Fresno State in the WAC standings heading into Saturday night’s contest at Boise State. “Offensively Adrienne Johnson is unbelievable,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “She really stepped up for us and got us going. Once she gets going, her teammates follow. However, as a team, it’s important that we start games better. Idaho was a step faster than us. We were prepared but we just didn’t always execute. Johnson, who recorded her 11th game of 20plus points on the year, didn’t start out strong and

early in the second half with Tech holding onto a slim four-point lead, Weatherspoon pulled her All-American candidate from the game. Johnson responded by scoring six straight points on perimeter jumpers as Tech used an 18-4 run to push a 40-36 lead out 58-40 with just over four minutes to play. “I just wanted to give her a chance to refocus and reassess,” Weatherspoon said. “She wasn’t playing like she is capable of. She was allowing some things to happen on the defensive end that was hurting us. Adrienne responded. She always responds to whatever I say and whatever I do, and that is the sign of a great player.” However, Idaho wouldn’t go quietly as the Vandals cut the lead down to 61-53 and forced a turnover with 40 seconds to play. The Lady Techsters got the defensive stop on the possession though and Idaho’s threat was ended. “Whenever there is time on the clock, then the game isn’t over. Idaho never gave up. They kept scrapping and clawing. They put in shooters and spread the floor. The worst thing we did in the second half was put them in the bonus with 13 minutes to play by fouling. They are a good free throw shooting team and so we had to be careful the rest of the way defensively because we didn’t want them to get to the foul line.” Early in the game, Tech looked like the 14-hour trip to Moscow had taken its toll on the team as Idaho used an 11-0 run to grab a 14-5 advantage just eight minutes into the contest. However, the Lady Techster responded with a run of its own, scoring the next 13 points to retake the lead at 18-14 and eventually entered the halftime locker room leading 30-25. In addition to Johnson’s big night, Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey added 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists while Shantale Bramble-Donaldson scored nine points. Yinka Olorunnife led Idaho with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Louisiana Tech 93, Boise State 86 Jan. 29, 2011 • Taco Bell Arena BOISE, Idaho - Adrienne Johnson scored 21 points and Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey added 19 points to lead Louisiana Tech to a 93-86 win over Boise State at Taco Bell Arena Saturday night in Western Athletic Conference basketball action. With the victory, Tech (15-5, 7-0 WAC) won its eighth straight game and ended a three-game losing streak to the Broncos (11-10, 2-5 WAC) in Boise as the Lady Techster senior class won for the first time ever on the Taco Bell Arena floor. Although Johnson and Wysinger-Mackey were the leading scorers for LA Tech, they weren’t alone as six players scored in double figures for the Lady Techsters, including Whitney Jones with 17 points, Jasmine Bendolph with 13 points, Brietta Thomas with 12 points and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson with 10 points. After Boise State took an early 2-0 lead, the Lady Techsters got rolling scoring easy buckets in transition as Tech shot 54 percent (20-37) from the field in the first half to grab a 50-37 halftime advantage. The two teams continued to trade punches in the second half although LA Tech was able to keep its double digit lead, extending out to as many as 17 points at 64-47 with over 12 minutes to play. With Tech holding onto a 79-64 lead, Boise State made one last run behind the three-point shooting of Kati Isham and great free throw shooting. An Isham three-pointer with under a minute to play cut the Tech lead to 88-84. However, Tech hit five free throws late and got a couple of defensive stops to secure the win. For the game, Tech outscored Boise State 2810 on points off of turnovers and dominated in fast break points, outscoring the Broncos 24-0.

RUSTON - With members of Louisiana Tech’s three national championship teams in attendance, Louisiana Tech gave a champion effort Saturday night at the Thomas Assembly Center defeating Nevada 67-43 before 2,249 fans. In honor of the 30th reunion of the first of Louisiana Tech’s three national championship titles, players, coaches and support staff from the three teams converged on Ruston for the weekend to celebrate. What they saw was the Lady Techsters most complete performance of the year as LA Tech improved to 13-5, 5-0 in Western Athletic Conference play, while Nevada fell to 13-5, 2-3 in WAC action. “This entire weekend has been special,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon, the starting point guard on the 1988 NCAA Championship team. “To have all of these members of the Lady Techster Family back ... it’s just special. “We played our most complete game of the year, especially on the defensive end of the floor and in valuing the basketball. This is a very, very good Nevada team and we showed a lot of energy tonight. We were aggressive. We got our hands up and made it tough for them to run their offense. We took care of the basketball. I’m proud of our kids.” With four former Louisiana Tech Kodak All-Americans watching from the stands, senior Adrienne Johnson showcased her arsenal of AllAmerican skills, scoring 26 points while getting the frontline of Shavon Moore and Kayla Williams into foul trouble early. Moore and Williams, who entered the game averaging 26 points and 18 rebounds, were held to a total of just 15 points and 13 rebounds between them before they both fouled out in the second half. “Adrienne is special,” Weatherspoon said. “She just does everything on the floor. She can score from everywhere. She is a great defender. She is a great rebounder. We’ve had some great players over 37 years here, and she is one of the best.” With Johnson and junior Shantale BrambleDonaldson (12 points) providing the offensive punch, senior guard Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey spearheaded the defensive effort by holding one of the top 15 scorers in the country in Wolf Pack guard Tahnee Robinson to only 14 points. “Tarkeisha really respects (Robinson),” Weatherspoon said. “She will be the first one to tell you what a great player she is. How smart she is. However, TK loves a challenge and she really did an incredible job on her tonight. Our entire team did an incredible job playing defense for 40 minutes.” Nevada entered the game averaging 71 points a contest and leading the WAC in field goal percentage at 44 percent for the year. However, LA Tech clamped down and held the Wolf Pack to a season low 43 points and only 36 percent (17-47) shooting. Tech also forced 28 turnovers by the Wolf Pack while committing a season-low six. Tech outscored Nevada 27-2 on points off of turnovers. The Lady Techsters also took the court in newly-designed Under Armour uniforms with sleeves. It marked the first time since March 15, 2002 against UC-Santa Barbara in the NCAA Tournament in Austin that the Lady Techsters wore sleeved uniforms.

The Lady Techsters also took care of the basketball, committing only nine turnovers on the night while forcing 17 by the Broncos. Louisiana Tech 90, Fresno State 84 (OT) Feb. 5, 2011 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Most of the time movie sequels don’t match up to their predecessor. However, Saturday night in Ruston, Louisiana Tech vs. Fresno State “Episode II” lived up to its billing as the Lady Techsters defeated the Bulldogs 90-84 in overtime before 7,123 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. The game had been billed as the rematch between the Western Athletic Conference’s top two teams who played a triple overtime thriller in Fresno on Jan. 13 that LA Tech won 94-92. Although it only took one overtime on this night, it still had plenty of emotion and drama as the LA Tech took a two-game lead in the WAC standings with the victory - its ninth straight. “We knew that Fresno State was going to come in here hungry,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We knew they would be plenty motivated. We didn’t come out with the energy that we needed early on but we fed off this great crowd as the game progressed and we made plays when we needed to make them. “I want to thank everyone who came out tonight for this game. Our fans were incredible. The atmosphere was electric. Our kids really fed off of our fans and they were truly our sixth man. I hope they liked what they saw and will come back Monday night and the rest of the year.” The 7,123 fans - the 16th largest crowd in Techster history and the largest since 7,321 fans watched Tech defeat UConn on Jan. 7, 2001 - were treated to another classic between these two programs. For the third time in the last four meetings between Louisiana Tech and Fresno State, the game went to overtime and for the second straight time the Lady Techsters came out on top. It took a free throw by All-American candidate Adrienne Johnson with 3.5 seconds remaining in regulation to send it to overtime. Johnson then scored six of her game-high 26 points in overtime to help LA Tech outscore the Bulldogs 14-8 in the extra period. However, the win wasn’t sealed until Brietta Thomas hit a free throw with nine seconds remaining to push the advantage out to three scores. The victory extended Tech’s winning streak to nine games - the longest since the 2005-06 team won 15 straight - and improved the Lady Techsters record to 8-0 in league play, now two full games in front of Fresno State with eight conference games remaining.

Despite battling travel issues to get to Ruston - Fresno State didn’t arrive to Monroe until 4 p.m. the Bulldogs came out of the gates strong, building a 19-5 lead on a three-pointer by Rosie Moult with 13:50 to play in the opening half. However, the Lady Techsters started mounting their comeback and when Whitney Jones hit all three free throws after being fouled on a three-point attempt with 3:40 to play in the half, Tech led 33-30. Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey scored 14 first half points as the Lady Techsters took a 41-38 halftime lead into the locker room. Tech came out in the second half and pushed the lead out to as many as seven while maintaining a slim advantage until Moult hit a pair of free throws with 59 seconds to play in regulation - giving Fresno State its first lead since late in the first period. Thomas hit a driving layup for LA Tech on its next possession to pull Tech back ahead at 75-74 before Hayley Munro hit two free throws with 20 seconds left to once again give the Bulldogs a 76-75 advantage. Trailing by one, Tech ran a play and found Johnson down low. However, Johnson was fouled by Munro sending her to the free throw line with only 3.5 seconds to play. After missing the first one, the senior calmly sank the second one to send the game into overtime. “I was so mad at myself for missing the first free throw,” Johnson said. “I knew I had to make the second one. I knew we just needed to get into overtime.” Johnson finished with 26 points and 14 rebounds while Wysinger-Mackey scored a seasonhigh 21 points before fouling out in regulation. Jasmine Bendolph added a season-high 21 points while Whitney Jones scored 13. Jaleesa Ross scored 30 points for Fresno State while Marnique Arnold and Moult each added 16 points. Tech shot 45 percent (29-65) for the game while hitting 29-of-42 free throws while Fresno State shot only 35 percent (28-81) from field, including only 7-of26 from three point line. The Bulldogs hit 21-of-2 9 free throws. Louisiana Tech 85, New Mexico State 63 Feb. 7, 2011 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Adrienne Johnson scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and reached a milestone while leading Louisiana Tech to an 85-63 win over New Mexico State Monday Night at the Thomas Assembly Center. Johnson’s layup at the 9:17 mark of the first half pushed her past former Kodak All-American Nora Lewis and into 10th place on the Louisiana Tech alltime scoring list, joining an elite group of Techster

greats that includes seven former Kodak All-Americans. However, despite recording her 10th double double of the year, Johnson battled foul trouble all night long playing only 24 minutes before fouling out with over five minutes to play in the game. With the All-American saddled with foul difficulty most of the game, the rest of the Techster team didn’t miss a beat as three other LA Tech players scored in double figures while 11 of the 12 that played in the game scored. And although Tech (17-5, 9-0 WAC) eclipsed the 85-point mark for the fifth time in the last seven games, LA Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon said the victory started on the defensive end of the floor. “I thought we defended them pretty well, especially in the second half,” said Weatherspoon, who saw her team limit the dangerous Aggies team to only 2-of-15 from the three-point line. “In the first half we allowed them to pass the ball around the perimeter a little too easily. We didn’t make things as difficult. “We did a better job in the second half. Overall, I thought we executed our defensive game plan pretty well for most of the night.” New Mexico State (10-12, 4-4 WAC) entered the game with its three starting guards of Madison Spence, Jasmine Lowe and Danisha Corbett having combined for 106 three-point field goals on the year. However, under pressure by Tech’s defenders, the three-some hit only 2-of-12 on the night. After the Aggies took a 14-13 lead on a threepointer by Lowe with 14:13 to play in the first half, Tech clamped down and used a 20-3 run over the next seven minutes to build a 33-17 advantage. While Johnson was doing her damage on the inside, junior point guard Jasmine Bendolph was having her way on the perimeter. Bendolph hit 6-of-12 field goals, including a season-high three three-pointers, and scored 17 points while adding five assists and four rebounds and no turnovers. “I thought Jasmine really had a good floor game for us,” Weatherspoon said. “She really ran the show tonight. It’s such a luxury when you have a point guard who is an extension of you on the court. She is starting to find her offensive rhythm.” Bendolph’s effort came two nights after she scored a season-high 21 points in Tech’s 90-84 overtime win over Fresno State. The Mobile, Alabama native is averaging 17.0 points per game in the Lady Techsters last three wins. She isn’t alone in her new found offensive groove as senior guard Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey had another stellar performance, scoring 14 points, grabbing six rebounds and dishing out four assists. Wysinger-Mackey has now scored in double figures in seven of the last eight games and has improved drastically on her free throw percentage - hitting 29-of-40 over the last five games after hitting only 41 percent prior. “So many times when you are struggling at the free throw line it can affect you in other areas of your game,” Weatherspoon said. “She has really found a comfort level at the free throw line and you can see it’s helped her.” Tech took a 39-32 halftime lead into the locker room before scoring the first seven points of the second half in less than 60 seconds to push the advantage out to 46-32. NMSU would get no closer than 11 points the rest of the way as the Tech bench played well down the stretch in pushing the lead out to the final margin of 22. Whitney Jones added 16 points for Tech. NMSU was led by Jasmine Lowe with 16 and Madison Spence with 14. Louisiana Tech 88, New Mexico State 79 Feb. 12, 2011 • Pan American Center LAS CRUCES, New Mexico - Adrienne John-

RUSTON - Adrienne Johnson scored 19 of her game-high 22 points in the second half to help Louisiana Tech blow open a tight game and defeat Hawaii 76-50 before 1,747 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Thursday night. The victory was the 400th all-time by the Lady Techsters at the Thomas Assembly Center as LA Tech now owns an eye-popping 400-40 record in the facility since it opened in 1982. LA Tech (19-5, 11-0 WAC) also won for the 12th straight time and kept its two-game lead in the Western Athletic Conference race intact. Hawaii (917, 3-10) fell for only the second time in its last five games. Early on it looked like the game might be a route as Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey spearheaded a tough Tech defensive effort that forced numerous turnovers leading to easy buckets and a 15-point Lady Techster advantage. Wysinger-Mackey scored 10 of her 12 points in the first eight minutes of play and when Shantale Bramble-Donaldson scored off an assist by Wysinger-Mackey with 10:49 to play in the opening half, Tech lead 25-10. However, Hawaii changed to a zone defense

Louisiana Tech 62, San Jose State 53 Feb. 19, 2011 • Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Louisiana Tech watched a 20-point first half lead whittle down to one with less than five minutes to play but the Lady Techsters survived a scare from San Jose State downing the scrappy Spartans 62-53 Saturday at the Thomas Assembly Center. With the win, Tech (20-5, 12-0 WAC) won its 13th straight game and keeps its two-game lead over Fresno State in the Western Athletic Conference race with four games remaining. However, the victory didn’t come easy. “I want to give San Jose State all the credit in the world,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “Those kids came in here and played hard. They never quit. They never backed down. They deserve so much credit because they took it to us.” Through the first 15 minutes of the game, it appeared as if it was going to be an easy afternoon for the Lady Techsters in Ruston as Martina Holloway’s layup with 5:38 to play in the opening period gave Louisiana Tech a 31-11 lead. That’s when the Spartans took control of the game. For the next five-plus minutes, San Jose State led by senior guard Sayja Sumler sliced and diced the Lady Techsters on both ends of the floor, outscoring LA Tech 14-3 and cutting the deficit to 34-25 at the break. After the Lady Techsters pushed the advantage back out to as many as 13 at 45-32 on a free throw by Shantale Bramble-Donaldson with 14:28 to play, San Jose State once again put the clamps down on LA Tech. Over the next eight minutes of play, the Spartans held Tech to one field goal and two free throws

while Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon sat on the bench looking on at her veteran team. “We have an experienced team,” Weatherspoon said. “Sometimes you have to allow them to learn on their own. We wanted them to work through this on their own. They have all the skills and they’ve been taught everything they need to know on both ends of the floor. I wanted them to figure it out.” When San Jose State guard AJ Newton hit a three-pointer with 6:35 to play in the game, the Spartans had cut the deficit to 49-48. That’s when the Lady Techsters figured it out - at least defensively. On five of the Spartans next six possessions, LA Tech forced a turnover, including back-to-back steals by Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey and Adrienne Johnson that led to fast break layups as the Lady Techsters used an 8-0 run to push the advantage back out to 57-48. “That’s when we decided to play,” Weatherspoon said. “You can’t turn it on and off like that. We have to play for 40 minutes. We wanted to come out and get better today and we didn’t. I give San Jose State a lot of the credit for making this a game.” Johnson led Tech with 14 points and eight rebounds while Whitney Jones added 13 points for the Lady Techsters who committed 25 turnovers in the game. Sumler led the Spartans with 25 points and eight steals while Sara Plavljanin added 14 points. Tech shot 41 percent (17-42) from the field, 3-of10 from the three-point line and 25-of-33 from the free throw line while San Jose State hit 43 percent (20-47) from the field, 3-of-11 from beyond the arc and 10-of13 from the charity stripe.

and LA Tech went cold, hitting only 3-of-19 shots the rest of the half as the Rainbow Wahine pulled to within 30-25 at the half. “I told them that we weren’t that bad of a zone offensive team,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We simply started to settle for too many outside shots. We didn’t do a good job of executing our offense against the zone. We got a little stagnant.” Wysinger-Mackey, who scored in double figures for the seventh straight game and ninth time in last 10 contests, said that Weatherspoon addressed the team’s shortcomings at the half. “She told us we weren’t attacking,” WysingerMackey said. “We weren’t being aggressive enough. We were settling too much.” Weatherspoon’s message hit home with her team as Tech came out in the second half and attacked the Hawaii zone, as Johnson scored 10 points to lead a 21-8 run as Tech grabbed a 51-33 lead eight minutes into the second half. The lead continued to grow as Kiara Young’s layup with 10:14 to play made the score 56-36 as the Lady Techsters would go on to build as much as a 30-point advantage before coasting to its 24th win over Hawaii in 27 tries. Johnson’s 22 points marked the 15th time this year that she has eclipsed the 20-point plateau. Bramble-Donaldson added 13 points while Wysinger-Mackey and Brietta Thomas each scored 12 points for the Lady Techsters. Jasmine Bendolph added seven points, seven rebounds, five steals and four assists in 22 minutes. Kamilah Jackson was the lone Hawaii player in double figures, scoring 12 points while pulling down 10 rebounds. Tech shot 40 percent (27-67) from the field, 5-of19 from the three-point line and 17-of-27 from the free throw line while Hawaii hit 39 percent (19-49) of its field goals, 4-of-9 three-pointers and 8-of-15 free throws. The Lady Techsters forced 28 turnovers while committing only 10 as LA Tech outscored the Rainbow Wahine 34-7 on points off of turnovers.

son and Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey each recorded double doubles and Louisiana Tech used a big second half to down New Mexico State 88-79 Saturday night before 1,176 fans at the Pan American Center. With the victory, Tech (18-5, 10-0 WAC) extended its winnings streak to 11 games and maintained its two-game lead over Fresno State in the Western Athletic Conference standings. The win wouldn’t come easy as Tech found itself trailing at the half, but Johnson recorded her 11th double double of the year with 24 points and 15 rebounds while Wysinger-Mackey scored a seasonhigh 23 points and added 10 rebounds to lift the Lady Techsters to their seventh straight win in the series. Playing without its second leading scorer in senior guard Whitney Jones, the Lady Techsters built an early 18-10 lead as Johnson scored eight points. However, the Aggies (10-13, 4-5 WAC) rallied and two free throws by guard Jasmine Lowe with 1.8 seconds remaining in the opening half capped a 27-18 run as New Mexico State entered the locker room leading 37-36. Teresa Weatherspoon and Co. opened the second half strong as a pair of Brietta Thomas three’s ignited a 20-7 run that saw the Lady Techsters regain the advantage at 56-44 with 13:38 to play in the game. Tech pushed the advantage out to as many as 13 at 64-51 on a pair of Jasmine Bendolph free throws with 10:22 to play but NMSU senior guard Madison Spence would let the Aggies go quietly. Spence scored 23 of her game-high 29 points after halftime, including 16 in the final 10 minutes of play as she led the Aggies back as NMSU pulled to within 77-73 with 55 seconds remaining. However, the Lady Techsters were stellar at the free throw line all night long, including 11-of-12 in the final minute of the game to seal the victory. After combining to score only 14 points in the first half, Johnson and Wysinger-Mackey combined to score 33 points after halftime. Bendolph added 16 points, seven assists, five rebounds and only one turnovers while Kiara Young came off the bench to score 11 points. For the game, Tech shot 43 percent (26-60) from the field, 5-of-11 from the three-point line and an impressive 84 percent (31-of-37) from the free throw line. NMSU shot 40 percent (30-75) from the field, 6-of-15 from the three-point line and 81 percent (13of-16) from the free throw line. NSMU outrebounded Tech 44-38 in the game. In addition to Spence’s big night, Jasmine Lowe scored 18 points, Danisha Corbett 12 points and Tabytha Wampler 11 points for the Aggies.

LOUISIANA TECH points and grabbed 16 rebounds and Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey came off the bench to score 18 points to lead Louisiana Tech to a 78-70 win over Utah State Saturday afternoon before 891 fans at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. With the victory, Tech improved to 21-5 on the year, 13-0 in Western Athletic Conference play while Utah State fell to 15-12, 9-5 in conference action. While recording the 997th win in its program’s history, Tech maintained its two-game lead in the Western Athletic Conference race over Fresno State. Teresa Weatherspoon’s team - which won for the 14th straight time - struggled early in the game. After Martina Holloway hit a three-pointer at the 15:59 mark of the opening half gave the Lady Techsters an 8-6 lead, Utah State used a 9-2 run capped by a Chelsea Burns trifecta to grab a 17-10 advantage. Late in the Aggies run, Weatherspoon inserted Wysinger-Mackey, who failed to start for the first time this season, into the lineup and the senior guard provided an instant spark. Over the next four minutes, Wysinger-Mackey scored six points, grabbed three rebounds, recorded one steal and one assist as the Lady Techsters outscored the Aggies 12-2. “It’s called holding yourself accountable,” Weatherspoon said. “She didn’t let not starting affect the energy she brought once got into the game. She provides so many different things to our team, on both ends of the floor. Tonight she was huge again for us.” Wysinger-Mackey’s energy also seemed to spark Johnson, who was scoreless through the first eight plus minutes of the game before a layup at the 11:35 ignited the All-American candidate. Johnson ended the half with 10 points and 10 rebounds to tie Wysinger-Mackey for scoring honors at the half. An Alice Coddington three-pointer with 39 seconds to play in the first half gave the Aggies a 36-35 halftime advantage and ended a half that saw five ties and six lead changes. “We allowed their pressure defensive to make us play too fast in the first half,” Weatherspoon said. “A lot of our turnovers were because of that. We simply needed to settle down and do a good job of taking care of the basketball, getting it to the middle of the floor and attacking.” The two teams stayed close early in the second half as Utah State actually built a 47-43 lead on a layup by Devin Christensen at the 14:38 mark. However, a Wysinger-Mackey layup and a three-pointer by Holloway gave Tech the advantage - a lead it would not relinquish. “I thought Martina hit some big three’s for us in the second half,” Weatherspoon said of the senior guard who finished with 11 points, including a trio of three-pointers. “She’s done that for us this year. She’s a good shooter and she hit some big ones tonight.” Tech led 51-50 when Johnson took over, scoring seven straight points in a 10-1 run as the Lady Techsters took their biggest lead of the game at 61-51 with 9:45 to play. The Aggies, who entered the game having won seven of their last eight, got no closer than four points at 71-67 with 1:33 to play before Tech hit 7-of-8 free throws to seal the win. For the game, Tech shot 43 percent (27-63) from the field, 5-of-17 from the three-point line and 19-of-26 from the free throw line. Utah State shot 36 percent (26-71) from the field, 7-of-22 from the threepoint line and 11-of-16 from the charity stripe. Tech outrebounded the Aggies 50-40. Ashlee Brown led Utah State with 16 points and 12 rebounds while Banna Diop added 10 points and 11 boards and Christensen scored 15.

scored 32 points and junior Kate Kevorken hit two big three-pointers down the stretch to lead the Wolf Pack to a 71-66 win over Louisiana Tech Monday night before 1,940 fans at the Lawlor Events Center. The victory by the Wolf Pack snapped LA Tech’s 14-game winning streak which dates back to an 8375 loss to 20th ranked Marquette on Dec. 30 in Miami. LA Tech (21-6, 13-1 WAC) still holds a one-game lead over Fresno State in the Western Athletic Conference race with two games remaining. The Lady Techsters will close out the regular season schedule at home hosting Boise State Thursday and Idaho Saturday. The story of the night was rebounding as Nevada dominated the glass for 40 minutes, outrebounding LA Tech 46-22. However, despite being outrebounded so badly, LA Tech still had a chance to win. After Nevada built a 50-37 lead thanks to the sharp-shooting of Robinson, who hit 11 of 22 field goals and 5-of-7 from beyond the arc, Tech answered using a 16-0 run over a six minute period to retake the lead. Senior guard Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey, who led Tech with 24 points and a career-high eight steals, ignited the run hitting three three-pointers during the run. Her final three from 23 feet away with 10:33 to play in the game gave the Lady Techsters a 53-50 advantage. The two teams continued to battle back-andforth and a Jasmine Bendolph three-pointer with 2:55 to play in the game gave the Lady Techsters a 64-63 advantage. However, Kayla Williams scored on a layup and then Kevorken - who entered the game averaging 3.7 points per game - hit a long three with 1:59 to play to up the advantage to 68-64. Following a miss by Tech on the offensive end, Nevada had an opportunity to put the game away but Wysinger-Mackey stole the ball and went the length of the floor for a layup to make the score 68-66. Nevada guard Nicole Williams then hit 1-of-2 free throws with 45 seconds to play to push the lead to three. After three timeouts by LA Tech trying to set up a game-tying three, the Lady Techsters turned the ball over with 14 seconds to play. An intentional foul was called on Tech as Williams hit 1-of-2 and Nevada kept possession of the

basketball. Tech was forced to foul again and Robinson hit 1-of-2 with 6 seconds to play to seal the win. In addition to Wysinger-Mackey’s effort, Bendolph recorded her first career double double with 15 points and a career-high 13 assists while committing only two turnovers. Adrienne Johnson added 15 points and eight boards. For the game, Tech shot 44 percent (24-55) from the field, 9-of-17 from the three-point line and 9-of16 from the free throw line. Nevada shot 46 percent (25-55) from the field, 8-of-16 from the three-point line and 13-of-18 from the free throw line. Louisiana Tech 86, Boise State 72 March 3, 2011 •Thomas Assembly Center RUSTON - Senior guard Brietta Thomas scored a career-high 28 points and Adrienne Johnson added 26 points and 10 rebounds to lead Louisiana Tech to an 86-72 win over Boise State Thursday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. With the victory, Tech (22-6, 14-1 WAC) clinched at least a share of the Western Athletic Conference regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming league tournament in Las Vegas March 9-12. The Lady Techsters will close out their regular season Saturday at 2 p.m. when they host Idaho on Senior Day and can secure the outright WAC championship with a win. In Thursday night’s victory over the Broncos (12-16, 3-12 WAC), Thomas did the damage on the outside while Johnson torched the Broncos inside as head coach Teresa Weatherspoon praised her entire team. “I’m so proud of everyone,” Weatherspoon said. “From our starters to our bench, everyone did what we asked them to do. I can’t tell you how much I love my kids.” Although Tech led from start to finish, the win didn’t come easy as Boise State kept the game close by shooting almost 50 percent from the field until the final few minutes when the Broncos went cold. After opening in a man-to-man defense, the Broncos went zone after the Lady Techsters built a 13-point lead midway through the first half. With three players ranging 6-foot-2 or taller on the floor the majority of the time, Boise State’s size could have


LOUISIANA TECH

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech donned WAC championship t-shirts, league commissioner Karl Benson presented the trophy and the Lady Techsters players cut down the nets as part of the postgame celebration following a 65-55 win over Idaho Saturday afternoon at the Thomas Assembly Center. With the 10-point victory over the Vandals, LA Tech (23-6, 15-1 WAC) clinched the outright regular season title - its eighth in 10 years of affiliation with the Western Athletic Conference. As the Lady Techster players and coaches sat on the bench while Benson addressed the team and fans following the contest, senior forward Adrienne Johnson wiped tears from her eyes as the gamut of emotions ran through her. “It was emotional,” said Johnson, who scored 26 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in her final game ever in Ruston. “This is something we wanted so badly. I can remember the first time I came to Tech; it’s hard to believe four years has gone so fast.” According to Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon, her team earned the title while representing the University the entire season with grace and class. “These kids deserved to celebrate this,” Weatherspoon said. “They’ve earned this opportunity to celebrate on their home floor in front of our fans. We’ve had to overcome a lot of adversity this year; people don’t know what these kids go through. It’s a tribute to them.” The final nail in the championship coffin didn’t go in easy as the Vandals (14-14, 7-9) provided a challenge for the entire 40 minutes of action. With Tech leading 42-27 on a jumper by John-

a driving layup with 4:41 to play. That’s when Tech junior guard Jasmine Bendolph did what she does best come WAC Tournament time - she hit a huge shot. With the Nevada defense collapsing inside against the Tech frontline of Adrienne Johnson and Kiara Young, Bendolph - who hit the game-winning jumper with less than 30 seconds remaining in last year’s championship game - took a pass from Martina Holloway and calmly sank a three-pointer with 3:24 to play that increased the advantage to 60-55. “We have been struggling against zones,” Bendolph said. “Coach told us to attack the middle, and when they pass it out, be ready to shoot the ball.” Tech then stepped up defensively, forcing the Wolf Pack into three missed shots and a turnover on their next four possessions holding the Wolf Pack scoreless for more than four minutes. By the time Nevada guard Johnna Ward hit a long two-pointer to cut the lead to 61-57, there were only 32 seconds remaining in the game. The Lady Techsters then sealed the victory by hitting 5-of-6 free throws down the stretch. Nevada took its only lead of the game on a Ni-

son with 17:32 to play, Idaho tightened up defensively, outscoring Tech 17-6 over the next nine minutes to cut the deficit to 48-44 on an Alyssa Charleston layup with 8:16 to play. “I give a lot of credit to Idaho,” Weatherspoon said. “Those kids never give up. They always play us well, and they always play us for 40 minutes.” With Idaho trying to complete the comeback, Tech turned to its All-American and Johnson came through - scoring nine straight points over a five minute stretch. With Idaho trailing 59-55 with less than two minutes to play, Johnson recorded a conventional three-point play. Fifty seconds later, she sealed the win with an up and under move that gave the Lady Techsters a nine-point advantage. Following the win, Weatherspoon made it clear that her team would be ready when it heads to the WAC Tournament in Las Vegas next week. “We celebrated today, but as soon as we got into the locker-room our kids refocused,” Weatherspoon said. “We are proud of what we’ve accomplished so far. We still have some unfinished business in front of us. These young ladies know that and will be ready.” It was Johnson’s 14th double double of the season and her 17th 20-plus point scoring game as she is now only 41 points shy of moving past both Sheila Ethridge and Vickie Johnson and into 5th place on the Lady Techsters all-time scoring list. In addition to Johnson’s big night, Jasmine Bendolph added 11 points, five rebounds and three assists while Brietta Thomas scored nine points - all on three-pointers - and seven boards. Charlston led Idaho with 10 points. For the game, Tech shot 43 percent (23-53) from the field, 5-of-12 from the three-point line and 14-of21 from the free throw line. Idaho shot 39 percent (19-49) from the field, 3-of-16 from the three-point line and 14-of-18 from the free throw line. The Lady Techsters outrebounded the Vandals 37-30.

caused some issues. However, Thomas and Johnson turned it into a positive. The duo combined to score 25 points in the opening 20 minutes of play as Tech took a 41-30 lead into the halftime locker room. The biggest contributing factor to the lead was Tech outscoring Boise State 17-0 on points off of turnovers as the Lady Techsters committed only three turnovers while the Broncos committed 13. The Broncos opened the second half strong closing the gap to 47-43 on a layup by Kati Isham with 14:13 to play. With Tech leading 51-46, Thomas began her second half three-point shooting display burying a trey with 13:04 to play to make the score 54-46. After Boise State closed the gap to 62-59 with 8:56 to play, Thomas drilled another three pushing the lead to six. The two teams remained close with Tech holding a 74-70 lead before another Thomas threepointer at the 3:53 mark started a game-ending 12-2 run. Thomas finished the game hitting 7-of-9 threepointers -- tied for third most in Tech history --, including 5-of-6 in the second half, while adding four rebounds in 36 minutes of action. “We’ve known all along that Bri can shoot,” Weatherspoon said. “We did a good job of penetrating the zone and kicking it out to open shooters. Bri was down and ready to shoot tonight, and it showed. However, what I’m most pleased with is the effort she gave on the defensive end of the floor.” Johnson recorded her 13th double double of the year with 26 points and 10 rebounds while Shantale Bramble Donaldson scored 12 points off the bench. Lauren Lenhardt led Boise State with 19 points. For the game, Tech shot 41 percent (29-71) from the field, 8-of-26 from beyond the arc and 20-of-27 from the free throw line. Boise State hit 43 percent (26-60) of its field goals, 6-of-16 three-pointers and 14-of-16 free throws. The Lady Techsters outrebounded Boise State 43-38 and ended the night with a season low six turnovers.

Louisiana Tech 66, Nevada 59 March 11, 2011 • Orleans Arena LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Louisiana Tech’s 66-59 win over Nevada at the Orleans Arena Friday sends the Lady Techsters into the Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship contest set for Saturday at 3 p.m. However, the victory also held historical significance as well. As the final few seconds ticked off the clock, the contingent of a couple of hundred Lady Techster fans in attendance waved towels commemorating the 1000th win in the storied program’s history. It was truly a historical day for a program that has had plenty during its 37 years of existence, including 26 NCAA Tournament appearances, 13 Final Fours and 3 National Titles. “It means a lot to me because of (these players),” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “I’m proud of where they came from. This is something we took a look at in the locker room. When they take a look at that 1000th win, they will see their name. That’s what is important to me. I don’t have anything to do with it. It’s all them. “They bought into the system and performed between the four lines. That’s the beautiful thing for me. I’m happy for them. When you take a look at that 1000th win, their name will be connected.” Number 1000 didn’t come easy, which might have made it even sweeter. After building as much as a 10-point first half lead, LA Tech (24-6) saw the Wolf Pack fight back to close the gap to 52-51 behind the inspired effort of senior guard Tahnee Robinson. It was Robinson’s three-pointer with 7:46 to play - one of only two she attempted all game - that brought Nevada (21-10) within one point. The game remained tight with Tech holding onto a slim 57-55 advantage after Kate Kevorken hit

cole Williams 18-footer with 18:33 to play in the first half as LA Tech then reeled off six straight points capped by a floater in the lane from senior guard Brietta Thomas. After Nevada tied the game at 8-8 on a layup by Robinson, Tech scored six straight again to lead 14-8 before pushing the advantage out to as many as 10 at 35-25 on a driving layup by Shantale BrambleDonaldson with 1:52 to play in the half. Tech took a 35-27 lead into the locker room. The second half saw Nevada quickly pull to within 39-37 on a Robinson layup with 14:54 to play in the game. Robinson opened the second half scoring 10 of Nevada’s first 12 points after being held to only eight points in the opening 20 minutes. She would finish the game with 23 points. Tech managed to build a nine-point advantage at 48-39 on a layup by Kiara Young with 10:58 to play, but a three-pointer by Ward and back-to-back layups by Kayla Williams started the Wolf Pack rally, setting the stage for Bendolph’s heroics down the stretch. “This was in incredible game for our kids to play,” Weatherspoon said. “Our kids fought hard. We played a great first half of basketball. In the second half the intensity level changed. Robinson is a great player and she got her team back into the game. It was just a wonderful game for us to come out here and compete. “This is what we’ve talked about all season long. We’ve have been trying to develop a killer instinct. We have learned how to buckle down, get defensive stops and find ways to win games.” Johnson, the WAC Player of the Year and a Wade Trophy candidate, led LA Tech with 24 points, nine rebounds, four steals and two blocks while Young added 14 points and seven boards and Bendolph chipped in with 10 points and seven assists. Tech, which was outrebounded by Nevada 4622 in a 71-66 loss to the Wolf Pack on Feb. 28, won the battle of the boards 33-32. For the game Tech shot 46 percent (23-50) from the field, 4-of-14 from the three-point line and 16-of23 from the free throw line. Nevada shot 42 percent (25-59) from the field, 5-of-15 from the three-point line and 4-of-5 from the free throw line. Fresno State 78, Louisiana Tech 76 March 12, 2011 • Orleans Arena LAS VEGAS - Fresno State freshman Bre Farley banked home a shot from the block with .2 seconds remaining to lift the Bulldogs to a 78-76 win over Louisiana Tech in the championship game of the 2011 Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship game. With the victory, Fresno State (25-7) clinched the automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament while LA Tech (24-7) will have to await Monday night’s NCAA Selection Show to find out whether the selection committee will reward its body of work during the season. “All I want to say is how proud I am of my young ladies,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “They fought hard to get back into the game. They did what I asked them to do to perform well. We always talk about the little things, and we did all the little things except for one thing down the stretch and they scored. “You have to give (Fresno State) credit. Our kids fought hard, and I’m proud of the things we did. We aren’t done. We have done a great job all year. This cannot be the end for us after what these kids have done.” Farley’s heroics - her only bucket of the game came after Louisiana Tech mounted a furious rally in the final minute of the game. With Fresno State leading 76-71 on a pair of Jaleesa Ross free throws with 28 seconds to play, Tech’s Kiara Young cut the deficit to three on a putback off of a Whitney Jones miss with 18 seconds remaining in the game. Following a LA Tech timeout, Brietta Thomas tied up Ross on the inbounds play,

giving the basketball back to the Lady Techsters on the alternating possession. Tech inbounded the basketball to Thomas who barely misfired on a three-pointer before Young pulled down the offensive rebound and passed it back out to Whitney Jones who buried the gametying three-pointer with 6.4 seconds remaining in the game. “They left me open,” Jones said. “I felt comfortable. I looked around to see if I was open, and I just took the shot.” Fresno State then inbounded the basketball and brought it up to halfcourt before calling a timeout with 2.9 seconds. Following the timeout, the Bulldogs Rosie Moult inbounded the basketball to Farley down on the block who spun and hit the shot off the glass with .2 seconds to play sending Fresno State to the win. The loss spoiled a valiant comeback by the Lady Techsters who watched Fresno State end the first half on a 12-0 run to take a 37-26 lead into the halftime locker room. However, it didn’t take long for LA Tech to fight back in the second as the Lady Techsters hit 9 of their first 11 shots after intermission and used a 21-4 run to take a 47-41 lead with 13:55 to play. “It was our intensity level,” Weatherspoon said. “One thing we spoke about at the half was our intensity level had to change. This is a totally different game - it is do or die in postseason. Most importantly we had to execute offensively. “We had to get Adrienne Johnson more touches. When she touches the basketball, we are a must better team. She is either going to score or she is going to find her teammates. Everyone had to step up, and everyone stepped up in the second half and that is why we were so successful.” Fresno State answered with a 7-0 run to retake the lead and the two teams went back and forth in a game that saw 10 ties and 14 lead changes. With the game tied at 60-60 with just under eight minutes remaining, Fresno State used a 6-0 run to grab a sixpoint advantage. The Bulldogs held onto the lead from that point forward until Jones’ three tied the game at 76, setting the stage for Farley’s heroics. Johnson, who made the all-tournament team for the second straight year, led Tech with 22 points, followed by Jones’ 18, Young’s 14 and Bendolph’s 11.

Ross led Fresno State with 23 points while Taja Edwards added 15 points and 10 rebounds and Moult chipped in with 10. Rutgers 76, Louisiana Tech 51 March 30, 2011 • CenturyTel Arena BOSSIER CITY, La. - Rutgers held Louisiana Tech to a season-low in points as the Scarlet Knights defeated the Lady Techsters 76-51 in the first round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament before 5,377 fans at the CenturyTel Center Sunday night. With the victory, Rutgers (20-12) advanced to Tuesday night’s second round against Texas A&M, an 87-47 winner over McNeese State in the first game of the day. LA Tech ends a successful season 24-8, including a Western Athletic Conference regular season title and the program’s 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. After the two teams played to a 14-14 tie through the first nine minutes of the game, Rutgers used a decisive 25-7 run over the final 11 minutes of the opening stanza to grab a 39-21 halftime advantage. “Tonight was a game that was very tough on us,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “It kind of got away from us early, but our kids never stopped fighting, scratching and clawing to the very end. Rutgers did exactly what they said they would do ... they brought a lot of bodies after Adrienne Johnson.” Johnson helped Tech keep it close early, scoring nine points as her conventional three-point play at the 11:17 mark of the half tied the game at 14-14. However, Tech hit only 8-of-29 field goals in the first half, including only 1-of-10 from the three-point line, against the Rutgers 2-3 zone. Johnson and Brietta Thomas combined to 8-of17 field goals in the opening 20 minutes while combining for 20 of the 21 halftime points. However, the rest of the Tech team shot 0-for-12 from the field with Jasmine Bendolph scoring the only other point on a free throw. “We knew if we could knock down some shots, we would remain in the game,” Weatherspoon said.

“Unfortunately, tonight the ball did not go in for us. Our kids never stopped fighting because there is a lot of pride in the Lady Techster program.” Meanwhile, Rutgers guard April Sykes hit 7-of12 field goals, including a pair of three-pointers, to score 16 first half points while the Scarlet Knights shot 47 percent (15-of-32) in the opening half. After Rutgers opened up a 21-point lead at 4221 early in the second half, the Lady Techsters used a small run ignited by junior forward Shantale Bramble-Donaldson to pull to within 45-28 with 15:42 to play. Bramble-Donaldson, who ended the game with eight points and eight rebounds, scored five points during the run. Four straight Rutgers layups over the next two minutes pushed the advantage back out to 53-28 as the lead increased to as many as 27 at 61-34. Tech used another spurt capped by an Angie Felton threepointer at the 6:08 mark of the game to close the deficit down to 63-42. Senior guard Martina Holloway, playing in her last game, capped Tech’s scoring with a threepointer with 23 seconds to play to end the scoring for both teams. Johnson led Tech with 20 points, six rebounds, four steals and two blocks. She ends her Lady Techster career with 1,985 points - the fifth most in the history of the program. Thomas added 12 points and seven rebounds in her final game in a Lady Techster uniform. Sykes led Rutgers with 22 points while Khadijah Rushdan added 16 points and 10 rebounds and Chelsey Lee scored 11 points and grabbed 11 boards. For the game, Tech shot only 27 percent (17-of63) from the field, including only 3-of-23 from beyond the arc. Rutgers hit 51 percent (28-55) of their shots while outrebounding Tech 44-34. The Lady Techsters committed only 10 turnovers in the game. Tech’s senior class of Johnson, Thomas, Holloway and Tarkeisha Wysinger-Mackey led Tech to four straight winning seasons, including three 20-plus win seasons, three Western Athletic Conference titles (two regular season and one tournament) and three postseason appearances (2 NCAA, 1 WNIT).

Now in its 50th year of existence, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success over the past decade. The WAC has sent a total of 35 teams to bowl games since 2001, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five teams. The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games in three of the last five seasons including Hawai‘i’s appearance in the 2008 Sugar Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 28 seasons. Every current school in the WAC has competed in the NCAA Tournament since 1990. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003 including Fresno State’s College World Series victory in 2008. In women’s sports, Fresno State softball has competed in every NCAA Tournament ever held while Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three. In 2009, Hawai‘i made its fourth trip since 2000 to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four, and in 2010, the Rainbow Wahine earned a trip to the Softball College World Series. Current WAC alums have made their presence felt as well. David Carr (Fresno State) was the first player selected in the 2002 NFL Draft. Cheryl Ford (Louisiana Tech) was named the WNBA Rookie of the Year and helped the Detroit Shock win the league’s championship in 2003. In 2004, the United States’ softball team won the Olympic gold medal with former Fresno State players Laura Berg and Lovie Jung. Jeff Weaver (Fresno State) earned the win in the St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series clinching victory in 2006. Quarterback Colt Brennan (Hawai‘i) finished third in the 2007 Heisman Trophy voting, and in 2008, Natasha Kai (Hawai‘i) helped the United States to a gold medal in soccer at the Olympics in Beijing. In 2001, the WAC partnered with ESPN for coverage of football and basketball giving the conference national exposure from one of the most respected broadcast entities in the country. The WAC also officially added WAC.tv in 2006 to give fans streaming internet access to many of its postseason championships including volleyball, soccer, swimming and diving, basketball, gymnastics, softball and baseball. The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. The first championship was held in November 1962, when Arizona won the men’s cross country title and New Mexico followed with the first WAC football title. Arizona finished second in the NCAA College World Series and, less than three years later, Arizona State claimed the league’s first NCAA title when the Sun Devils won the College World Series trophy. Fresno State was the last WAC school to earn an NCAA team title when it won the College World Series in 2008. Since 1962, several changes have occurred. UTEP and Colorado State became members in September 1967, while Arizona and Arizona State withdrew on June 30, 1978. The WAC then added San Diego State (1978), Hawai‘i (1979) and Air Force (1980). Before 1990, the WAC sponsored championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Fresno State was added in 1992, and then in 1996, the women’s programs from Air Force and Hawai‘i along with six new schools (UNLV, Rice, San Jose State, SMU, TCU and Tulsa) came into the WAC. Air Force, Brigham Young, Colorado State, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming withdrew on June 30, 1999. Nevada (2000), Boise State (2001) and Louisiana Tech (2001) were added while TCU withdrew following

When Karl Benson was named the fifth commissioner in the history of the Western Athletic Conference on April 20, 1994, he brought with him a wealth of experience and a personal history of success to the position. Since that time, Benson not only has laid a strong foundation for the WAC’s future, he has also steered the conference through unsettled times as the league’s longest tenured commissioner. Through his leadership and vision, it didn’t take long for the WAC to regain its place among the nation’s top Division I conferences. Benson has spearheaded conference expansion three times over the past decade with the most recent additions of Denver, UTSA, Texas State and Seattle. Nationally, Benson has earned the respect of his peers after serving on the NCAA Management Council from 1999-2002, and a five-year term on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee from 2002-06. Benson hit the ground running when he was hired in 1994 and initiated several programs that improved the conference’s national position in virtually every category. He was instrumental in developing multi-year agreements with the Holiday Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Copper Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, Silicon Valley Football Classic, GMAC Bowl, New Mexico Bowl and currently, the Humanitarian Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, Poinsettia Bowl and Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. In the summer of 2005, he implemented “Play Up” a new marketing campaign to improve the public and private perceptions of the WAC and its members through national, local and regional touch points. The conference officially added WAC.tv prior to the 2006-07 season, giving fans streaming video access to many of the postseason championships of the sports offered by the WAC. In 1995-96, the WAC signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with ESPN for the unprecedented live coverage of its basketball and football. Included in that deal was a women’s basketball contract, the first in conference history. In 2008, Benson negotiated an extension with ESPN that gave the WAC even more telecasts of its regular season and championship events. Benson came to the WAC after four successful years as the commissioner of the Mid-American Conference. There, he implemented several innovative projects and was instrumental in the formation of the Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to taking the reins of the MAC, Benson served on the NCAA staff for more than four years where he was the director of NCAA championships when selected as MAC commissioner. Benson joined the NCAA staff in January, 1986, as a compliance representative and was appointed assistant director of championships in June, 1987. He was promoted to director of championships in 1988. In that position, Benson actively supervised eight assistant directors in their administration of 68 NCAA championships. A native of the state of Washington, Benson graduated from high school in Pullman in 1970, attended Spokane Falls Community College and then received a bachelor of science degree in physical education from Boise State University in 1975. He has also completed course work toward his master’s degree in athletics administration at the University of Utah. Benson played baseball at both Spokane Falls Community College and Boise State University before serving as the baseball coach at Fort Steilacoom Community College in Tacoma, Wash., for eight years and as the director of athletics at Fort Steilacoom from 1979-84. From 1984-86, he was an assistant baseball coach and an administrative assistant in the athletics department at Utah. He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Boise State in April of 2006. Benson was born on December 1, 1951 and has one daughter, Jessie.

the 2000-01 season. The current membership was established on July 1, 2005, when Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. For the 2012-13 season, the WAC will add Denver, UTSA, Texas State and Seattle to replace withdrawing members Boise State (2011), Fresno State (2012), Hawai‘i (2012) and Nevada (2012). The WAC has had just five commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 1962-1968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (1971-80), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94) and Karl Benson (1994-present). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball.

Techster History

Record: 148-45 (.766) Head Coach: Sonja Hogg (1974-1980). Conference Titles: no conference affiliation. NCAA Tournament Appearances: 2 (1978-79/AIAW; 1979-80/AIAW). Kodak All-American Selections: 1 (Pam Kelly, 1979-80). Wade Trophy Winners: 0. Final Fours: 2 (1978-79/AIAW; 1979-80/AIAW). National Championship Titles: 0

1975

Louisiana Tech embarked on its new adventure Jan. 7, 1975, when the 12-member Lady Techster squad under the direction of Coach Sonja Hogg lost to Southeastern Louisiana 59-55 at Memorial Gym in Ruston. The Lady Techsters would rebound and post the school’s first ever victory Jan. 24, when Tech downed Louisiana State University

97-83 in Memorial Gym. Tech eventually finished the regular season 11-7 before splitting four games at the Louisiana AIAW State Tournament. Tech’s season ended with a two-point defeat to McNeese State at the tournament, but the foundation had been set for years to come. Statistical Leaders: Belinda Jones, 22.5 ppg; LaVerne Henderson, 15.6 rpg (still school record) Honors: Mickie DeMoss — All-Louisiana

1975-76

Tech’s second year of women’s basketball proved to be even better than the first as the Lady Techsters posted a 19-10 record. Tech’s 14-member roster was comprised of all Louisiana athletes with freshman Kay Ford and sophomore Mary Robertson coming from farthest away — Alexandria, La., located less than 100 miles from Ruston. Hogg’s team opened the season with two convincing wins over Ouachita Baptist and Nicholls State before dropping a 74-63 decision to Panola Junior College. On three separate occasions during the season, Tech posted four-game winning streaks. Once again the Lady Techsters earned a bid to the Louisiana AIAW State Tournament where they won two games before being ousted by LSU.

2011-12 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL

1974-1980

YTLA ISR TECH EVINU

When Louisiana Tech President F. Jay Taylor appointed physical education instructor Sonja Hogg as the first head coach in the history of the Lady Techsters women’s basketball program in 1973, very few people ever dreamed it was the birth of one of the premier programs in the country - but history proves this to be a fact. “There was no way to expect the outpouring of devotion when it all started back in 1974,” Hogg said. “Of course, we couldn’t really envision the scope and magnitude of what might be accomplished by this program, either.” Hogg and Taylor were staples in the program’s early success, and the addition of a young Leon Barmore as an assistant in 1977 and eventually the head coach in 1982 only strengthened an already dominating Lady Techsters program. After 20 years as head coach of Tech, Barmore retired Aug. 22, 2002, as the winningest coach percentage wise in the history of collegiate basketball -- men’s or women’s -- with an incredible mark of 576-87 (.869). One day after Barmore’s announcement, Louisiana Tech Athletic Director Jim Oakes named Kurt Budke as the third head coach in the illustrious history of Lady Techster basketball. Budke responded by leading the Lady Techsters to a 31-3 record and the Sweet 16 of the 2003 NCAA Tournament in his first year. Following the season, Budke departed Tech and President Dan Reneau and Athletic Director Jim Oakes along with the Tech Athletic Council decided to promote six-year assistant coach Chris Long as the fourth head coach in the program’s history. Long’s first season was a success as he was named the WAC Coach of the Year after leading Tech to a 26-5 mark and the program’s 25th straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Former Kodak All-American, Wade Trophy winner and WNBA All-Star Teresa Weatherspoon was promoted from associate head coach to the fifth head coach in the program’s history in April of 2009 after she guided the Lady Techsters to a 9-2 mark over the final 11 games of the 2008-09 season and a share of the WAC regular season title. This past year she led the Lady Techsters back to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in two years as Tech captured the WAC regular season title with a 15-1 record. The Lady Techsters 66-59 win over Nevada in the WAC Tournament semifinals also marked the 1000th win in program history as Tech joined Tennessee as the only two programs to reach the milestone. Heading into its 38th season, Louisiana Tech is still considered one of the top five women’s basketball programs in the history of the game, and rightly so. The numbers tell the story. No one can argue the incredible success this mid-major school has seen on the women’s basketball front over the years. The stories are numerous and the memories are various - however, the results have always been the same ... a winning tradition.

Led by freshman post player Pam Kelly, Tech recorded a regular season mark of 24-3 (the three losses were by a combined four points). After coasting through the state and regional tournaments, the Lady Techsters won their first national post-season contest defeating Kansas 100-61. Two more victories over Northwestern and Tennessee moved Tech into the National Championship game against Old Dominion where the Lady Techsters lost 75-65. Tech ended the season ranked No. 2 in the country. The Lady Techsters also posted milestone victory No. 100 defeating Southern 105-83 in the LAIAW Tournament.

The Lady Techsters posted the first of 23 20-plus winning seasons by registering a 22-9 mark and earning the school’s first ever trip to the AIAW Regional Tournament. Once again an all-Louisiana roster rolled along as the Techsters posted a 15-7 regular season mark before entering the state AIAW Tournament for the third consecutive year. However, this time Tech’s balanced attack - featuring four players averaging double figures -was simply too much for opponents as the Lady Techsters captured the state title by winning four consecutive games. In the regional tournament, Tech opened with a convincing victory over Oklahoma State before falling to Baylor in a tight contest. Two more Lady Techster wins, over Texas-Arlington and Northwestern State, advanced them to the title game where they fell 94-85 to Texas.

Although the Lady Techsters posted another 20-win season and earned its second trip to the AIAW Regional Tournament, the big news was the hiring of a 33-year-old assistant named Leon Barmore. Barmore, who lettered for the Tech men’s program for three years, came to Tech after coaching in the high school ranks for 11 seasons at Bastrop and Ruston High Schools. Barmore’s vast coaching knowledged combined with Hogg’s recruiting prowess formed one of the most talented coaching staffs in the country. On the playing court, Tech posted a 20-8 record on the road to earning the school’s first ever national ranking. After making its third straight appearance in the AIAW Regional Tournament and splitting four games, the Lady Techsters ended the season ranked 20th in the country.

Expectations were high entering the season as Tech returned the nucleus of its national title game team and Lady Techster fans would not be disappointed. Once again the Lady Techsters cruised through the regular season before advancing through the state and regional AIAW Tournaments. Tech defeated Kansas and Long Beach State to earn its second Final Four appearance before falling to Old Dominion and South Carolina to finish fourth in the country. The 40-5 mark still stands as the national and school record for the most victories in a season. Once again Pam Kelly dominated inside, scoring 932 points during the season, a mark that still stands in the Tech record books.

The contest was nationally televised on NBCTV as the nation watched Tech down the Lady Vols 79-59 in what would eventually become the top rivalry in women’s basketball. The win marked the 27th time in 34 games that the Lady Techsters had won by 20 or more points. “We knew with the schedule we were playing that it would be exciting for our fans and that we would certainly find out how good we were,” said Leon Barmore. However, perhaps only Street & Smith’s had the foresight to know as the preseason publication had picked Tech to win it all in October. It wouldn’t be Tech’s last.

1982-83

The 1982-83 season brought with it much change for the Lady Techsters. Gone were threetime Kodak All-American Pam Kelly and one-time All-American Angela Turner. Also, Leon Barmore was promoted to co-Head Coach before the start of the season. Probably the biggest change for the program was a new home as the 8,000-seat Thomas Assembly Center opened, replacing old Memorial Gym. However, one thing did remain the same as the Lady Techsters kept rolling along, earning a fifth straight Final Four and a third straight title game appearance. The only thing that stood in the way of another perfect season was Southern California who defeated the Lady Techsters twice, in the home opener at the TAC (6458) and in the national title game (69-67). Tech finished the season 31-2.

The one-two combination of Janice Lawrence and Kim Mulkey returned for their senior seasons with hopes of reclaiming the national title. And after starting the season with 18 straight wins, including a 75-66 win over Southern California at the TAC, it looked like little could stop Barmore and Hogg’s team. Only two close losses against Memphis State and Old Dominion blemished Tech’s regular season mark and the Lady Techsters cruised through the first three rounds of the NCAA Tournament to advance to a sixth straight

Although a number of impressive streaks ended, this was another exciting season of Lady Techster basketball. Tech opened the year with 18 straight wins, including a memorable 79-77 overtime victory over I-20 and Top 25 rival UL-Monroe in front of a Thomas Assembly Center record crowd of 8,975. Tech stumbled at the midway point, dropping three of five games, including a loss in the rematch against ULM. However, the Lady Techsters - in Hogg’s last season as coach - won seven straight games to end the regular season and gain momentum entering the NCAA Tournament. After two lopsided wins in the first two rounds, Tech and ULM faced off for a third time, with the Lady Indians prevailing 85-76. The loss prevented two streaks from continuing as Tech’s 29-4 mark ended a string of six straight years with 30 or more wins and it also prevented the Lady Techsters from earning a seventh straight Final Four. Tech did capture the 300th win in the program’s history with a 78-59 victory over Oral Roberts.

A new era began in 1985-86 as Leon Barmore took over the sole reigns of the Lady Techsters after Sonja Hogg’s retirement. Barmore led a relatively young team - featuring only one senior - to a 25-4 regular season mark, including impressive road victories over Tennessee, Alabama and Oklahoma State. Tech was 13-1 on the season before freshman Nora Lewis, who was averaging 13.3 points and 7.1 rebounds, suffered a season-ending knee injury. The Lady Techsters entered the NCAA Tournament and promptly defeated Washington and Long Beach State before exiting with a 80-64 loss to Southern California in the third round. Tech ended the season with an impressive 27-5 mark, and Barmore claimed milestone victory No. 100 in a win over UCLA Jan. 4, 1986, in Ruston.

Just call them the Cardiac Kids. After losing so convincingly in the national championship game the season before, Louisiana Tech felt it had plenty to prove entering the season - its first as a member of the newly-formed American South Conference. After Tech shot out of the gates winning the first 20 games of the season, including only one by less than 10 points, they dropped two consecutive last second contests against Tennessee and Penn State. The losses would be the last of the season. After easily claiming the ASC regular season and tournament titles, the Lady Techsters entered the NCAA Tournament and downed Kansas and Mississippi, setting up a third-round game against Texas in Austin. In what is still remembered as a classic, Tech downed the Lady Longhorns 83-80 in overtime to advance to yet another Final Four. The Lady Techsters got revenge over the earlier loss to Tennessee by downing the Lady Vols 68-59, setting up the national title game against Auburn. Just when it looked like Tech would drop a second straight title game - trailing by 14 at halftime - the Lady Techsters unloaded in the second half and won its third national championship 56-54 in Tacoma, Wash. “We were on the floor, flat on our backs,” Barmore said. “You find out a lot about yourself when you’re down. I’m proud that when we were down we had the kids on the floor who could get up and come back.” Tech ended the season 32-2.

As wonderful as the decade of the ‘80s was for Louisiana Tech, the ‘90s didn’t start as smoothly as the Lady Techsters posted a record of 18-12. The losses were the most in the history of the program, while the 18 wins were the fewest since the inaugural 1974-75 season. After starting the season 3-0, Tech set another school record with three straight defeats at the hands of LSU, UNLV and Notre Dame. After ending the regular season 16-11, Tech was in jeopardy of missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. However, an exhilarating 77-76 win over Lamar in the finals of the American South Conference Tournament kept the streak alive.

However, Leon Barmore worked his magic again, posting a 32-4 mark. Tech cruised through the regular season, suffering close losses against Tennessee (twice) and Colorado, while claiming second straight ASC regular season and tournament titles. Tech downed Oklahoma State, LSU and Stanford to advance to another Final Four before Auburn ousted the Lady Techsters 76-71. During the course of the season two more milestones were set as the program won its 400th game in a 79-51 victory over Holy Cross, while Barmore won his 200th game as Tech defeated Arkansas State 91-46 Feb. 11, 1989, in Ruston.

This proved to be a transition year as the American South joined the Sun Belt Conference. On the hardwood, the Lady Techsters tried to regain their old form, but struggled through another season of mediocrity at 20-10. Barmore’s team failed to win either the SBC regular season or tournament titles, but did receive an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. However, it was one and out as Tech fell 77-71 in overtime at Northern Illinois in the first round. A bright spot for the Lady Techsters was the return of Shantel Hardison after a year off. Hardison became the first Lady Techsters to ever lead the team in points, rebounds and assists in the same season, which earned her SBC Player of the Year honors.

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. That famous quote could be used to describe this season as Leon Barmore led Tech back to the national title game, but not without some rough moments. The highly-touted Techster team stumbled early in the season, losing a tough game at Iowa before being embarrassed at Alabama (99-77) and Tennessee (94-60). However, Barmore righted the ship as Tech cruised through the Sun Belt undefeated before easily winning the SBC Tournament title as well. Tech then proceeded to flex its muscle, winning five straight games in the NCAA Tournament - including revenge wins against both Alabama and Tennessee - to advance to the national title game against North Carolina. With less than one second remaining and Tech leading 59-57, the fourth national title was well within the Techsters grasp. However, a three-point shot by Charlotte Smith at the buzzer robbed Tech of another title.

With the loss of only two players from the prior season’s national title game team, Louisiana Tech was set to make yet another run at the national championship. After opening the season with a loss at top-ranked Tennessee, Tech won 12 straight before falling again to the Lady Vols. Tech then marched through the Sun Belt with only one blemish in claiming its third straight regular season title. Another loss in the SBC Tournament finals against the Lady Toppers left the Lady Techsters

1995-96

Another No. 1 ranking. Another Sun Belt Conference title. Another 30-win season. Another trip to the NCAA Tournament. It was business as usual for the Lady Techsters. After opening the season with a two-point overtime win over top-ranked Connecticut, Tech reeled off 15 more wins before falling at Tennessee. However, another 15 consecutive wins left the Lady Techsters in a showdown against Georgia in the regional finals. With Tech leading with only eight minutes remaining in the game, a career-ending injury to Maquisha Walker deflated the Techsters as they fell to the Lady Bulldogs. A 31-2 record and two more Kodak All-American selections highlighted the season. The program also reached milestone victory No. 600 with a 98-49 win over Western Kentucky.

Many people thought Louisiana Tech was going to have to rebuild after losing four starters to graduation, but Leon Barmore simply reloaded - and kept winning. Tech started the season strong, winning the inaugural Preseason Women’s National Invitation Tournament, defeating Tennessee 66-64 in the title game. Starting one freshman, three sophomores and a junior college transfer, Louisiana Tech proceeded to post a 31-4 record and win their fifth-straight regular season Sun Belt Conference title. After claiming a second consecutive SBC Tournament title, Tech entered the NCAA Tournament and promptly defeated St. Peter’s and Auburn before falling to Florida in the regional semifinals. Barmore won his 400th career contest with a 71-54 victory over North Carolina State in the Preseason WNIT.

Tech returned only one starter from the previous season and lost super sophomore Catrina Frierson with a torn ACL prior to the start of the year. Once again many national publications called for the Techsters demise but Leon Barmore would have none of it. After starting the season by capturing the prestigious preseason Women’s National Invitation Tournament with a win over No. 4 Purdue, the seniorless Lady Techsters never looked back. Tough losses to nationally ranked Tennessee and Connecticut didn’t deter Tech as Barmore and company claimed their ninth straight Sun Belt Conference regular season title and sixth straight tournament title. The Lady Techsters won three games in the NCAA Tournament before falling to Connecticut but finished the season 31-5. With the 31 wins, Barmore became the first coach in NCAA Division I history to record six straight 30-plus win seasons.

Ranked No. 2 in every preseason publication, a senior laden Lady Techster squad took to the floor for the 25th anniversary season. Compiling a 30-3 record on their way to a 13th Final Four appearance, Tech dominated the SBC once again winning its seventh straight regular season title and fourth straight tournament title. Tech’s only defeats came against No. 1 ranked Tennessee and the eventual national champion Purdue Boilermakers twice. The Lady Techsters defeated Central Florida, Penn State, LSU and UCLA on their way to another Final Four appearance. A 77-63 loss to Purdue in the national semifinals ended the season. However, the program posted its 700th victory with a 97-57 win over New Orleans during regular season conference play.

After losing three players to the professional ranks, Leon Barmore was faced with a team that had only one player with more than one year of Lady Techster experience in point guard Tamicha Jackson. However, like clockwork, Barmore built a machine using the athletic ability of Jackson and Betty Lennox as the Lady Techsters simply ran through, around and away from the competition for most of the year. Tech would extend its SBC title streak to eight straight while also claiming its fifth straight tournament title. After posting three impressive wins in the NCAA Tournament, including a memorable 66-65 win over Vanderbilt in the second round, the Lady Techsters were ousted in the Midwest Regional finals by Penn State. However, Barmore reached another milestone when he claimed coaching victory No. 500 as the Techsters defeated South Alabama 90-33 Jan. 10, 2000, in Ruston. Barmore won 500 games faster than any coach in collegiate history, doing so in only his 576th career game.

Entering the 24th season of Lady Techster basketball, there were few records this storied program hadn’t already set. However, they managed to find one and promptly broke it. After posting another 31-4 season, winning its sixth straight Sun Belt regular season title and its third straight SBC tournament title, Tech advanced to its eighth national championship game in school history. And although the Techsters fell 93-75 to undefeated Tennessee in the title game, Tech’s success led to all five starters being named to the All-Sun Belt Conference team - another first in not only Tech history but also league history.

Louisiana Tech returned all five starters from its Elite Eight team of the year before as it entered its first year as a member of the Western Athletic Conference. However, after downing No. 17 Michigan in the season opener, the Lady Techsters went on arguably the toughest three-game road stretch in the program’s history, playing Tennessee, Duke and Connecticut (all eventual Final Four teams) in a two-week period. The Techsters ran away with the WAC regular season title --

the program’s 10th straight regular season conference title -- before claiming the WAC Tournament title and the automatic bid to the program’s 21st straight NCAA Tournament. The Lady Techsters finished the season 25-5 after falling to UC-Santa Barbara on a last-second shot in the NCAA Tournament, the 25th time in 28 years Tech had won 20 or more games. Junior center Cheryl Ford was named the WAC Player of the Year while senior forward Ayana Walker and sophomore guard Amber Obaze both made the Kodak All-District team. Senior guard Brooke Lassiter finished her four-year Tech career as the NCAA career leader in free throw percentage at 91.8 percent (269 of 293).

The Kurt Budke era began at Louisiana Tech with question marks surrounding the Lady Techster program after the loss of five seniors from the previous team. However, Budke and Co. showed the nation early that Louisiana Tech was once again going to be mentioned among the nation’s elite as the Lady Techsters downed No. 7 Texas Tech 85-76 in the season opener. The ride on Cloud 9 was shortlived as Tech lost two of its next three games and came to a cross roads in its season heading down to Tulane for a match-up against the Green Wave. Tech responded with a resounding 68-53 win, the first of what would be 29 straight. Tech entered Christmas break defeating No. 25 ranked New Mexico at The Pit, the loss would be the only one at home during the regular season for the Lobos, proving what a feat the Lady Techsters had accomplished. The Western Athletic Conference had hopes that the Lady Techsters could be beaten (after the Rice Owls had accomplished

the feat at the end of the 2001-02 season). However, led by Cheryl Ford, who would win her second straight Conference Player of the Year Award while destroying both the school and league rebounding records, the Lady Techsters posted a perfect 18-0 mark in WAC play, claiming yet another conference title. After winning the WAC Tournament title and advancing to the program’s 22nd straight NCAA Tournament, Louisiana Tech defeated both Pepperdine and No. 20 Ohio State before falling to No. 3 ranked LSU 69-63 in the Sweet 16. In addition to Ford’s honor, Trina Frierson also earned first team All-WAC honors while guards Amber Obaze and Erica Smith both were named to the All-WAC second team and the league’s all-defensive unit. Budke earned the WAC Coach of the Year Award. Following the season, Ford was the third overall selection in the 2003 WNBA Draft by the Detroit Shock and would earn that league’s 2003 Rookie of the Year Award.

Louisiana Tech returned the nucleus of a team that went 31-3 the previous season although the Lady Techsters had to find a replacement for the departure of center Cheryl Ford, who won the 2003 WNBA Rookie of the Year Award. The Lady Techsters started strong winning their first three games, including posting an impressive road victory over Illinois in late November. Following an early December road loss at Tennessee, Tech reeled off five more wins in a row. The pinnacle of the out of conference schedule was a memorable 87-84 win over No. 6 ranked Penn State on the home floor of the Nittney Lions, a PSU team that had already deafeted LSU, Texas and Kansas State. After Penn State hit a three-pointer with 7.5 seconds remaining to tie the game up, Tech’s Amber Obaze hit a 35-footer with 1.2 seconds remaining to lead the Techsters to the win. After falling 87-84 to Rice in the second WAC game of the conference season, the Lady Techsters responded and promptly reeled off 16 straight wins to claim their third straight league title. Tech then won three straight contests in the WAC Tournament by an average margin of 31.6 points to earn the automatic berth in the program’s 23rd straight NCAA Tournament. Two wins in Missoula, Montana, including a memorable 81-77 victory over host Montana before a soldout crowd of over 7,500 screaming Lady Griz fans, sent the Techsters to the East Regional in Norfolk, Va. Tech’s season came to an end with a 63-49 loss to No. 1 ranked Duke as the Lady Techsters finished with a 29-3 mark. Senior forward Amisha Carter was named the 2004 WAC Player of the Year, while senior Trina Frierson was first team All-WAC and a finalist for the Naismith Player of the Year award.

Louisiana Tech simply had a tough year. Between a tough non-conference schedule that featured eventual Final Four opponents in Tennessee and LSU and six losses by six points or less, 2006-07 wasn’t a typical Louisiana Tech season. The Techsters started out the year losing seven of their first nine games before rebounding and ending the year winning 15 of their last 21. Head coach Chris Long’s team was streaky at best, posting some impressive wins over the likes of Mississippi State, Rice, Alabama, and Boise State. When they were on, the Lady Techsters were tough to beat as proven by the program winning its sixth straight Western Athletic Conference regular season title. However, inconsistent offensive play eventually spelled doom as a first round loss in the 2007 WAC Tournament ended the program’s 25 year streak of making the NCAA Tournament. Senior Shan Moore was named the 2007 WAC Player of the Year while junior Jo Sneed was named the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Newcomer of the Year.

2011-12 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL

The Lady Techsters entered the season with only one returning starter on the floor for the season opener against Ole Miss after graduating three All-WAC performers from the previous year. Also playing a huge role in Tech’s early season inexperience was the fact Preseason WAC Player of the Year Erica Taylor was sidelined, giving birth to her and husband Jermain’s first child, daughter Nia Jay on Dec. 15. With Taylor not returning to the Tech lineup until late January, junior point guard Tasha Williams was Tech’s lone starter from the previous year. Crain and Co. met a tough out-of-conference schedule, posting wins over Ole Miss, Arkansas State, Western Kentucky and Alcorn State, while falling to Tennessee, Oklahoma, Mississippi State and Illinos. Although Tech had won 10 straight regular season conference titles, many experts believed this would be the year the string was snapped. However, the Techsters made a statement early in conference play, overcoming a 16-point second half deficit to down Rice on New Year’s Day. Behind the play of Williams, who would see her scoring average increase from 4.3 her sophomore season to 18.2 this year, and guards Lakiste Barkus and Shan Moore, the Techsters posted a 14-4 mark in the WAC, tying Rice for the regular season title. The Lady Techsters string of 23 straight NCAA Tournament appearances was on the line in the semifinals of the 2005 WAC Tournament as Tech overcame a 15-point deficit with 7:02 to play before downing Fresno State 92-87 in double overtime. Despite falling in the WAC Tournament Championship game to Rice, Tech received an at-large berth into the Tournament as a No. 11 seed. Tech traveled to Storrs, Conneticut, and faced No. 6 seed and Top 25 Temple in the first round. Despite dominating the Owls for the entire first half, the Lady Techsters eventually fell 66-61. In addition to Williams earning the WAC Player of the Year honor, Barkus was named second team all-WAC while the pair both made the WAC all-defensive team. One week following the conclusion of the season, head coach Kurt Budke departed for the head coaching job at Oklahoma State. On April 8th, 2005, Chris Long was named as the fourth head coach in the program’s history in a press conference in the Hall of Fame Room at the Thomas Assembly Center. Following the season, Taylor was selected in the second round of the WNBA Draft by the Washington Mystics.

After opening his tenure as the head coach of the Louisiana Tech women’s basketball program with a loss at Western Kentucky, Chris Long and his team bounced right back in record-breaking fashion. Trailing by 19 points with less than eight minutes to play, Long and Co. rallied for a 95-91 double overtime win over Iowa in game No. 2 of the year ... setting the tone for another successful season. Behind the leadership of four-year starting point guard Tasha Williams and the record-breaking outside shooting of senior Aarica Ray-Boyd, Tech not only won its sixth straight regular season Western Athletic Conference title and earned the automatic berth to the program’s 25th straight NCAA Tournament, but they regained their rightful place among the nation’s Top 25. Tech overcame a lot of adversity and posted a very impressive 26-5 record on the season and earned a trip to Denver, Colo., for the first two rounds of the 2006 NCAA Tournament. Their opening round match-up against Florida State was considered one of the premier battles in the first round of the tournament by the women’s college basketball experts. However, only three days prior to the game, Williams suffered a severe ankle injury which proved costly to the Techsters and their fans as the Seminoles downed Tech 80-71, ending the Lady Techsters season. Williams, Ray-Boyd, Shan Moore and Ty Moore all earned AllWAC honors during the season while Williams and Ray-Boyd both earned Kodak All-District accolades.

For the second straight year, Louisiana Tech came up short in its bid for the NCAA Tournament as the Lady Techsters fell in the semifinals of the 2008 Western Athletic Conference Tournament. What started out as a season full of high hopes turned into a year of injuries and missed opportunities as the Lady Techsters finished 16-15. It was the program’s 34th straight winning season -- Tech has never had a losing campaign. However, in Ruston, La., expectations are always high and anything less than an NCAA Tournament berth is considered a down season. A preseason injury to freshman guard Sidney Stewart and a season-ending injury to sophomore guard Whitney Jones in the seventh game of the year increased the challenges for Tech head coach Chris Long and Co. The highlight of the season was the play of senior forward Jo Sneed, who averaged a double double and earned first team all-WAC and all-state honors, and the development of freshmen Adrienne Johnson and Tarkeisha Wysinger.

It proved to be an up and down season for the Lady Techsters in 2008-09 as LA Tech hovered around the .500 mark for most of the year. It took a late season run that saw the Lady Techsters win their final seven WAC regular season games to propel the program to a share of the conference title. Interim head coach Teresa Weatherspoon and Co. entered the WAC Tournament as the No. 2 seed and saw its eight-game winning streak snapped in a memorable 91-88 overtime loss to Nevada in the WAC Tournament semifinals. However, the Lady Techsters earned a berth in the WNIT where they dismantled Conference USA regular season champion SMU before falling in the second round to Illinois State. Tech posted a 21-13 mark on the year, the 29th season of 20 or more victories. Junior Shanavia Dowdell was named the WAC Player of the Year and first team all-state while sophomore Adrienne Johnson earned first team all-conference and all-state honors.

Back to the Big Dance. The Lady Techsters returned to their rightful place in the postseason as Teresa Weatherspoon and Co. recorded a mark of 23-9 which included a heart-stopping 68-66 victory over Fresno State in the WAC Tournament championship game. The non-conference portion of the season was highlighted with matchups against Top 10 foes LSU and Baylor as the Lady Techsters dropped a tough 77-74 contest against the Tigers in Ruston before falling 77-67 to the eventual Final Four participant Bears in Waco. After splitting their first six WAC games of the year, the season-changer came in a home game against Idaho. Tech trailed by four points with 28 seconds to play, but back-to-back three-pointers including the game-tying one by Jasmine Bendolph with eight seconds to play sent the game into overtime. Tech won 74-71 which started a stretch of eight wins over a nine-game span. Entering the WAC Tournament as the No. 2 seed, Tech defeated Utah State easily in the Quarterfinals before downing host Nevada 80-77 in a semifinal classic -- setting up a showdown with Fresno State which had won 18 straight WAC games and 19 straight games

overall. The Lady Techsters led by double digits in the first half before trailing 37-36 at the break. After building a nine-point lead in the final half, Tech watched Fresno State fight back to take a one-point lead with less than a minute to play. However, Bendolph sank an 18-footer with the shot clock running down and Tech hung on for the win. The Techsters earned a No. 14 seed and traveled to face ACC champion Florida State on their home floor in the NCAA Tournament. Behind 28 points from Shanavia Dowdell, Tech took the Seminoles down to the wire before falling.

Despite suffering through a modest three-game losing streak early in the season, Louisiana Tech posted impressive non-conference wins over Georgia, Tulane and Mississippi State that catapulted the Lady Techsters onto the national scene. Led by eventual All-American forward Adrienne Johnson, Tech entered Western Athletic Conference play and proceeded to reel off 13 straight victories, including a pair of memorable overtime wins against WAC rival Fresno State. The first was a 94-93 triple overtime win over Fresno State at the Save Mart Center when Brietta Thomas drained a three-pointer with 2.6 seconds to play in third overtime. Three weeks later, Johnson hit a free throw late in regulation to send the rematch into overtime where Tech prevailed 90-84 before 7,123 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. The Lady Techsters stumbled in Reno with a 71-66 loss to Nevada but rebounded with a pair of home wins over Boise State and Idaho to capture the outright league regular season title for the eighth time in 10 years. Tech recorded a milestone with its 1000th program win -- a 66-59 victory over Nevada in the semifinals of the WAC Tournament, setting up another rematch with Fresno State. This time Fresno State was the team to hit the big shot as the Bulldogs banked home a shot with less than a second to play to defeat Tech 78-76 for the WAC Tournament title. Despite the loss, Weatherspoon and Co. earned the program’s 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament where it fell to Rutgers in the first round in a game played at the CenturyTel Center in Shreveport. Johnson, who was named the WAC Player of the Year and a finalist for the Wade Trophy, was selected in the second round of the 2011 WNBA Draft by the Connecticut Sun.

The 6-foot, 3-inch center dominated women’s basketball during her four years at Tech, leading the Lady Techsters to a 136-6 record from 1980 through 1984. Even with her size, Lawrence possessed the ability to shot the 15-footer or put the ball and the floor and go past a defender at any time. The Lucedale, Miss., native participated in four Final Fours and won two national championships during her career while earning almost every individual honor imaginable. Lawrence earned her first Kodak All-American honor following a junior season that saw her average 20.8 points a game. However, that was just the beginning of her accolades. After her senior year, Lawrence earned Kodak All-American honors, and won the Wade Trophy and the Champion Player of the Year award. Today, Lawrence ranks No. 2 in points (2,403), No. 3 in scoring average (17.8), No. 5 in rebounds

51

(1,097), No. 4 in blocked shots (189) and No. 5 in steals (291). Lawrence proceeded to win a gold medal in the 1984 Olympic games in Los Angeles before playing for three seasons with the WNBA’s Cleveland Rockers. Lawrence, whose jersey has been retired at Tech, was inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in July of 2005 and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006. Pam Gant (1982-85) Kodak Year(s): 1985 Without a doubt the deadliest outside shooter in the history of Lady Techster basketball is Pam Gant. The 5-foot7-inch guard lettered at Tech from 1982 through 1985 and unfortunately played prior to the NCAA’s adoption of the three-point line in women’s basketball. Her outside shooting prowess was known across the nation as Gant connected on an incredible 54.6 percent of her field goal attempts during her four-year career, including an even more amazing 57.5 percent her junior and senior seasons. Gant played on three Final Four teams, including the 1981-82 NCAA National Championship team as a freshman. The Joliet, Illinois, native earned her Kodak All-American honor following the 1984-85 season, one in which Gant averaged 23.6 points a game - still a Louisiana Tech record. She recorded two games of 40-plus points during her career (second only to Sheila Ethridge’s three) including a career-best of 42 points in a win over Penn State and six games of 30-plus points. Gant currently ranks No. 12 in points (1,714), and No. 8 in steals (253).

2011-12 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL

When people think about some of the most dominating post players in the history of women’s basketball, Louisiana Tech’s Pam Kelly has to be near the top of the list. Despite the fact Kelly was a mere 6-foot tall, the Columbia, La., native recorded one of the most remarkable careers in Lady Techster history. Tech’s only three-time Kodak All-America honoree first ever recipient, Kelly led Tech to two national championships - the 1980-81 AIAW title and the 1981-82 NCAA title. During her four year career, the 1982 Wade Trophy winner scored an incredible 2,979 points and grabbed 1,511 rebounds while leading the Lady Techsters to a 143-10 record - the most wins ever over a four-year period in the history of the program. Almost 20 years after Kelly’s playing days ended, she still ranks No. 1 in scoring, No. 1 in rebounding, No. 1 in field goals made (1,193), No.1 in free throws made (593), No. 2 in scoring average (19.5) and No. 7 in steals (274). Kelly - whose number is retired - was enshrined in the Louisiana Tech Athletic Hall of Fame in 1984 and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2007.

championship titles - the 1981 AIAW and the 1982 NCAA. The Saline, La., native started from day one at Tech, averaging 16.0 points and 6.5 rebounds her freshman season, earning her the Louisiana Most Valuable Player award. Her sophomore year was even more impressive as Turner scored 817 points, which still stands No. 2 in the Tech record books for most points in a single season. Turner, who earned her Kodak AllAmerican award her senior season as Tech won its second straight national championship title, exemplified the term studentathlete as she also garnered an NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship. Today, Turner is the only Lady Techster to rank in the Top 10 in points (No. 3 with 2,262), rebounds (No. 6 with 1,073), assists (No. 8 with 466) and steals (No. 3 with 358). She also ranks No. 2 in field goals made (1,021). Her No. 5 jersey has been retired at Tech.

When a program’s won 1,000 games, participated in 31 national postseason tournaments including 27 NCAA Tournaments, advanced to 13 Final Fours, competed in eight national championship games and won three national titles, then it’s been fortunate enough to recruit some of the top players in the history of the women’s game. That’s just what Louisiana Tech has accomplished. Over the 37 years of Lady Techster basketball, the Memorial Gym and Thomas Assembly Center crowds have watched 11 Kodak AllAmericans suit up in the Columbia blue and red Tech uniform. The names ring like a who’s who in the history of the game - Pam Kelly, Angela Turner, Janice Lawrence, Pam Gant, Teresa Weatherspoon, Nora Lewis, Venus Lacy, Vickie Johnson, Debra Williams, Amanda Wilson and Tamicha Jackson. Four of those individuals - Kelly, Lawrence, Weatherspoon and Johnson - have won the award multiple times thus Tech can claim 16 Kodak All-Americans.

fearless leader on and off the court, Spoon exemplified the term emotional leader with a burning passion for the game. During Spoon’s playing days, Tech posted a 118-14 record and played in two national championship games. Spoon earned Kodak All-American honors her final two seasons and capped off her spectacular career by winning the 1988 National Championship and earning the Wade Trophy as the nation’s top women’s collegiate basketball player. Known more for her ballhandling and passing abilities than scoring, the Pineland, Texas, native saved her best performances for some of the nation’s top teams, recording a career high 17 assists against then nationally-ranked LouisianaMonroe and 10 steals against then nationally-ranked UCLA. During her career, Spoon scored 1,087 points, recorded 958 assists and totaled 411 steals with the assists and steals still ranking No. 1 in the Tech record books. Spoon - whose number is retired captured an Olympic gold medal in the 1988 games prior to becoming a four-time WNBA All-Star starter with the Liberty. She is an enshrined member of the Louisiana Tech Athletic Hall of Fame and will be enshrined in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.

Nora Lewis (1985-1989) Kodak Year(s): 1989 Nora Lewis ’ Louisiana Tech career didn’t start out on the most positive note, but it sure ended on one. Midway through Lewis’ freshman season - one in which she was averaging 13.3 points and 7.1 rebounds the forward suffered a season-ending knee injury and missed the remaining games. However, Lewis would not be deterred. The Peoria, Ill., native worked hard during the off-season and responded by averaging 14.2 points and 7.8 rebounds her sophomore campaign before helping guide Tech to the 1988 national championship game her junior season. Lewis earned her Kodak All-American honors following an incredible senior season that saw her average a double-double with 18.3 points and 10.9 rebounds a contest. The 6-foot forward also earned All-American South Conference and All-Louisiana honors her final two seasons. Currently, Lewis ranks No. 10 in points (1,760), No. 6 in free throws made (377) and

No. 7 in rebounds (1,071). Her No. 40 jersey is retired. Venus Lacy (1987-1990) Kodak Year(s): 1990 One of the greatest players in the history of Louisiana Tech didn’t start out as a Lady Techster. After playing her freshman season at Old Dominion, Venus Lacy made the decision to transfer to Tech - a move that would pay off for both her and the Lady Techsters. A virtual unknown before her playing days in Ruston, Lacy turned into one of the greatest post players in the country in little time. The 6-foot, 4-inch post helped Tech capture its third national championship during her first season (the 1987-88 NCAA title), averaging 14.5 points and 9.2 rebounds. Her junior campaign Lacy earned the American South Conference and Louisiana Player of the Year honors scoring over 20 points a contest. However, her great career was capped off by earning Kodak All-American honors as well as USBWA and Champion National Player of the Year awards her following her senior season, one in which she averaged 24.2 points a game (still a Louisiana Tech record). The Chattanooga, Tenn., native finished her three-year Tech career ranking No. 4 in points (2,004), No. 1 in scoring average (20.0), No. 6 in field goals made (793), No. 4 in rebounds (1,125) and No. 7 in blocked shots (164). Lacy went on to win an Olympic gold medal in the 1996 games in Atlanta and played for two seasons with the WNBA’s New York Liberty. Her jersey is retired at Tech.

Vickie

Johnson

(1993-96) Kodak Year(s): 1995, 1996 A two-time Kodak All-American (1995 and 1996), Johnson helped re-establish Louisiana Tech’s national prominence in the mid90s after the Lady Techsters had suffered through two mediocre seasons in 1990 and 1991. Johnson was a fourtime All-Sun Belt Conference selection during her playing days and earned Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year honors in 1995 and 1996. The Lady Techsters posted a 116-17 record during her four years including a trip to the national championship game in 1993-

55

94. During her junior year, Johnson became only the second player since Pam Kelly to lead the team in scoring for three straight seasons. The Coushatta, La., native still remains in the Tech record books, ranking No. 5 in points (1,960), No. 9 in scoring average (15.0), No. 6 in field goals made (793). Johnson - whose jersey is retired - recently became only the seventh player in WNBA history to score 4,000 career points, and has played 12 seasons in the WNBA. She was enshrined in the Louisiana Tech HOF in 2007. Debra

Williams

(1993-96) Kodak Year(s): 1996

Explosive. The perfect adjective to describe former Louisiana Tech great Debra Williams whose offensive moves became legendary around the Thomas Assembly Center during her playing days in the mid-90s. The 5-foot8-inch guard was blessed with talent and used it to her benefit as she teamed with Vickie Johnson to form the best one-two punch in women’s basketball during the time. Williams could hurt the opponent in a number of ways as her feathery touch from the three-point line was almost as deadly as her ability to take her defender off the dribble. The Houston, Texas, native earned All-Sun Belt Conference accolades three times and capped off her career with the Kodak honor in 1996. Williams earned the most valuable player award at the 1995 Sun Belt Conference Tournament as well as the Midwest Regional Tournament. One of the top three-point threats in Tech history, Williams ended her playing days as the Lady Techsters all-time leader in treys. Currently, she ranks No. 11 in points (1,749), No. 3 in three-pointers made (136) and attempted (378), No. 7 in field goals attempted (1,574) and No. 10 in three-point field goal percentage (34.0). Williams played for the Portland Power of the American Basketball League until 1998 when the league folded.

Amanda Wilson (1996-99) Kodak Year(s): 1999 If ever a player possessed self-confidence, Louisiana Tech’s Amanda Wilson was the one. After a stellar prep career at S h r e v e p o r t ’s Evangel High School, Wilson made the easy deci-

LOUISIANA TECH

If Tech fans happened to blink while watching a game, they might just have missed the next Lady Techster Kodak AllAmerican - Tamicha “Action” Jackson who proved lightning-quick during her career. Jackson started all four years for the Lady Techsters and starred from the beginning, scoring 428 points her rookie campaign while earning AllSun Belt Conference honors. That was only the beginning as Jackson led Tech to the 1998 NCAA National Championship game against Tennessee. The Dallas, Texas, native became only the second Louisiana Tech player to earn all-conference honors four times and capped her brilliant career by being named the Sun Belt’s Defensive Player of the Year. Jackson is one of only two Tech players to ever score 1,500 points, record 400 assists and 300 steals in a career (joining Angela Turner). The 5-foot-7-inch lightning rod ended her career as the SBC’s all-time steals leader with 361. Jackson currently ranks No. 9 in points (1,822), No. 9 in field goals made (753), No. 1 in three-pointers made (187), No. 7 in assists (474) and No. 2 in steals (361). The WNBA’s Detroit Shock selected Jackson in the first round of the 2000 WNBA Draft with the sixth overall pick, and she played seven seasons in the league.

sion to sign with the Lady Techsters and make the 60-mile move to Ruston ... a move Tech fans were thrilled about. After averaging 8.0 points in only one start during her freshman season, Wilson cracked the starting lineup at the beginning of her sophomore campaign and never relinquished the position, making 98 consecutive starts. The 6-foot forward earned All-Sun Belt Conference honors three straight seasons while also being named the SBC Player of the Year in 1998 and 1999. Wilson earned her Kodak All-American award following a senior season that saw her average 16.6 points and 7.9 rebounds while shooting an incredible 62 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free throw line as the Lady Techsters advanced to the Final Four. Louisiana Tech won at least 30 games in every year of Wilson’s career. Wilson ranks No. 8 in points (1,832), No. 4 in field goals made (815), and No. 4 in steals (303). The WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury selected Wilson in the fourth round of the 1999 Draft with the 46th overall selection.

The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Mel Greenberg began the Associated Press Women’s Basketball Top 20 poll at the start of the 1976-77 season. What began as a nationwide panel of 34 coaches now numbers 44 and represents all geographical areas of the nation as well as every conference. In 1989-90 the poll increased from 20 to 25 teams. Below is a history and indepth look at Louisiana Tech’s prominence in the poll. In the course of winning three national titles, advancing to eight championship games, earning 13 Final Four appearances and dominating the women’s game, Louisiana Tech has been a household name in women’s basketball ... just ask the AP Voters.
