WNBA Rookies of the Year Former Techsters Betty Lennox and Cheryl Ford have both earned the WNBA Rookie of the Year Award.

Teresa Weatherspoon is one of 21 WNBA players who played collegiately at Louisiana Tech.

The only three-time Kodak All-American in Lady Techster history, Kelly earned the 1982 Wade Trophy as the nation’s top player while leading Louisiana Tech to a mark of 143-10 during her four seasons, which included two national titles.

Hogg was the first head coach in the program’s history, leading LA Tech to a mark of 307-55, six Final Fours and two national titles. Teresa Weatherspoon (Class of 2010) lettered for LA Tech in the mid- 1980s where she was a two-time Kodak All-American and the recipient of the 1988 Wade Trophy as the nation’s top player. Weatherspoon led LA Tech to a mark of 118-14 during that time, two national championship appearances and the 1988 national title. She is the program’s all-time leader in assists and steals.

More than $12 million of the projected $20 million has already been committed as the project is moving forward and could break ground as soon as spring of 2013. Tech alums Steve Davison (pictured), Terry Bradshaw and Drake Mills form the Leadership Team that is spearheading the fundraising for the facility, along with Tech Athletics Director Bruce Van De Velde.

Since Louisiana Tech joined the WAC in 2001, its athletic programs have captured 29 team championships and dozens of individual titles. Louisiana Tech has contracted with renowned sports architectural firm Populous to develop a master facility plan. Populous has created some of the most recognizable professional sports venues in the country: “This project addresses many of the needs of our student-athletes, enhances recruiting and provides a source of pride for our alumni and fans.

2012-13 SEASON OUTLOOK

Despite recording the program’s 38th straight winning season last year, Louisiana Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon doesn’t have fond memories of 2011-12. After all, winning has a different meaning in Ruston for a program that has participated in 27 NCAA Tournaments, advanced to 13 Final Fours, played in eight national title games and won three national championships. And no one knows that more than Weatherspoon, who led LA Tech to the 1988 national championship title while earning the Wade Trophy as the nation’s top player. “Our focus and commitment must be different this year,” said Weatherspoon, who is entering her fifth season back in Ruston. “With a 17-15 record last year, people saw that as a winning season. For us, we underachieved. We weren’t satisfied. In order for us to be that team we want to be, our focus and commitment must change. All the other little things will follow. They must buy into what we are asking as coaches. “You have to have great team leaders on and off the floor. It has to be both places. Are you as a player committed to what has to be done to be a champion; study hall, classroom, eating right … everything that goes into succeeding before you even step between those four lines.” Although LA Tech overcame a slow start early in the year as well as a roller

coaster conference season to advance to the championship game of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference Tournament, the Lady Techsters fell short for their bid to a 28th NCAA Tournament appearance. However, this year’s team will be comprised of more newcomers than returners as Weatherspoon welcomes seven players to a 13-person roster. “What we like the most about our roster is our mixture of young kids – freshmen and junior college transfers – our DI transfers and our returners,” she said. “A lot of our kids have experience whether at the DI level or the junior college route. “You want competition every day in practice … a battle for each spot. The intensity never changes. It’s one of the beauties of looking at our roster. Who would you choose as your starters? It’s a great thing. No matter who starts or who finishes, the intensity will never change.” One thing that has changed is the size of the Tech roster as this year’s team boasts five players listed at 6-foot-2 or taller as well as one more listed at an even 6-foot. “It looks good to see we have gotten bigger,” Weatherspoon said. “We have become a little more talented in the painted area and more versatile. We have a mixture there. We have kids who are traditional post players and then we have some that can step out away from

the basket.” Weatherspoon also feels her crop of guards will be deep and talented – something that should translate into more of an up-tempo style of play. “They can all bring something different to the table to reach that common goal and vision,” she said. “When you take a look at our perimeter kids, we have slashers, shooters, finishers. We have so many different things we can do. It will help us be successful. “We will be able to open the floor up more and get in gaps more. We will make it difficult for any team to defend us. We want to run a little more … get up and down the floor more. The most important thing we want is to be versatile. We don’t want to be one dimensional.” Tech will be tested early and often as the Lady Techsters 11-game nonconference schedule features games against the likes of Texas A&M, LSU, Rutgers, South Carolina, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. “What an amazing schedule,” Weatherspoon said. “We are going to have to prepare ourselves and be ready to go from the onset. It’s a schedule we feel we can compete in. We don’t want to just compete in the WAC but in women’s basketball. In order to know where we need to be, we need to play teams like this. You have to play great teams and use it as a measuring stick. We feel like our team can compete.” Even Western Athletic Conference


Point Guard With the graduation of three-year starting point guard Jasmine Bendolph, head coach Teresa Weatherspoon will be relying on sophomore Courtney Hayes (Las Vegas, Nevada/Centennial High School) and junior college transfer Janay Borum (Upper Marlboro, Maryland/Palm Beach State College) to serve as the floor generals for the Lady Techsters this season. As a true freshman, Hayes saw action in 31 games for LA Tech making seven starts. The Las Vegas, Nevada native averaged 1.9 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 33 percent from the floor and 57 percent from the free throw line. “(Courtney) has great leadership ability,” Weatherspoon said. “She is a great slasher to the basket. She can find people open. She has great vision. Defensively, she will defend from one end to the other. “She does a good job of disrupting the other team’s offense early and does it by hounding the basketball. She has come back with great focus and she knows what we need from her in order to be successful. She must trust herself and her teammates will trust her. “ Hayes scored a season-high seven points in a win over Hawaii in the semifinals of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference Tournament in her hometown of Las Vegas, while also registering sixpoint performances in wins over New Mexico State and SEC foe Mississippi State. She recorded a season-high four assists against Tulane and Mississippi State. Borum joins the LA Tech family after playing the past two seasons on the junior college level, including her

freshman year at the College of Central Florida and her sophomore year at Palm Beach State College. She is ranked as the 25th best point guard in the junior college ranks by Dan Olsen’s Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. “Janay is an amazing leader,” Weatherspoon said. “She is a born leader. She does a good job of getting everyone involved. She does a great job of getting past her defender and running the offense. She gets the ball to the right person at the right time. “She will defend. She is all over the place. She will take over a game when needed. She has a great midrange shot. We want her to be a scorer. I like her turnover to assist ratio. She protects the basketball. Her size doesn’t matter. She is an athlete that wants to compete.” Borum ranked among the national leaders in assists, steals and assist to turnover ratio at Palm Beach State College while leading the team to the Region 8 State Tournament semifinals. She was named first team all-Mid Florida Conference while averaging 9.3 points, 5.0 assists and 2.8 steals per game. Off-Guard Weatherspoon will have a plethora of options for her two wing positions, including juniors Jelena Vucinic (Nelson, New Zealand/Waimea College), Brittney Jefferson (Leggett, Texas/Angelina College), sophomores Kelia Shelton

(Rock Hill, S.C./Clemson) and Kanedria Andrews (El Dorado, Ark./El Dorado HS) and freshman Lulu Perry (Benton, La./ Benton HS). Vucinic and Andrews are the only two who have played a game in a Lady Techster uniform although Shelton has big-time Division I experience from playing at Clemson while Jefferson has two years of junior college basketball under her belt. Perry was named Miss Basketball in the state of Louisiana. The sharp-shooting Vucinic should see more responsibility this year for the Lady Techsters after playing sparingly during her first two years in Ruston. The 5-foot-9-inch guard made two starts as a sophomore while seeing action in 21 games. However, it was her production in those two starts – 21 points in triple overtime win over Prairie View and 13 points in win over Tennessee Tech – that gives Weatherspoon confidence. “She is a joy to coach,” Weatherspoon said. “She has done a great job this summer playing back home in her league and playing well. She shoots the ball very well. She showed what she is capable of doing last year against Prairie View. That was a game that should carry over with her. I would really like for her to trust herself more. If she starts to do that, it’s amazing what she will be able to bring to this team. She is constantly working hard every day.” She averaged 3.6 points and 0.9

play will be challenging with the addition of five new programs to the league, including UTSA, Texas State, Texas-Arlington, Denver and Seattle. “This newness is good for us. It’s good for us to play different competition. We want our kids to be ready. We won’t take anyone lightly. No matter what, we have a Lady Techster uniform on and everyone is shooting for us.” With the Big Dance culminating in New Orleans this year, Weatherspoon and the Lady Techsters enter the season with ONE GOAL … ONE VISION … and ONE MISSION.

rebounds per game last season while shooting 29 percent from the field and 82 percent from the free throw line. However, she hit big shot after big shot while playing 51 of 55 minutes in the win over Prairie View in the St. John’s Chartwell Holiday Classic. Andrews returns for her second season in Ruston after seeing action in 23 games as a true freshman. The 5-foot-9 guard showed signs of being a defensive stopper last year but must work on her offensive game to take the next step. “She could definitely be our best defender,” said Weatherspoon. “One thing she does well on offense is get to the rim. We would like her to work on her outside shot … catch and shoot. It is all about her confidence level and believing in herself. There is no reason she shouldn’t be out there, giving us time and defending the best offensive players on the other team.” Playing in 23 games as a true freshman, Andrews averaged 1.3 points and

0.7 rebounds per game while shooting 44 percent from the field and 50 percent from the free throw line. She scored a career-high seven points against NCAA Tournament foe Fresno State, hitting a pair of three-pointers in that contest. She also scored six points and grabbed four rebounds against Memphis at the St. John’s Chartwell Holiday Classic. Shelton will return to the floor this season after sitting out last year due to the NCAA transfer rule after leaving Clemson and coming south. The 5-foot8-inch guard is a physical specimen and should be one of the Lady Techsters top offensive and defensive threats during the season. “She has a professional body frame,” Weatherspoon said. “She is an athlete who can do it all. I don’t say that very often. She has everything that you would like in a player. She has the competitor’s mentality. She will take over games when needed. She can finish above anyone. She can shoot it deep, has a great mid-range game and has great quickness. She makes everyone around her better.” As a true freshman at Clemson in 2010-11, Shelton averaged 4.9 points and 4.4 rebounds per game while playing in 30 games, earning seven starts. She scored a career-high 14 points against North Carolina and added 13 points against Georgia Tech. Shelton also pulled down 13 rebounds against South Carolina State. Jefferson was a Texas high school basketball legend after finishing her high school career as the second alltime leading scorer in state history with 4,258 points at Leggett High School. She played the past two years at Angelina College in Texas where she averaged 15.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game during her sophomore season. “She is quiet,” Weatherspoon said. “I look at her like a Vickie Johnson, who was a quiet assassin. She shoots the ball well. When you score as many points as she did in high school, you know you are doing something right. She shoots well, defends well and jumps well. She will help us spread our offense and make life easier on our post players. She can finish at the rim in many different ways. She is very athletic.” Jefferson was named all-Region XIV and all-conference as a sophomore. She is ranked as the 10th best shooting guard and 65th best player in the junior college ranks by Dan Olson’s Collegiate

Girls Basketball Report. Perry travels 60 miles down I-20 to come to Louisiana Tech after starring the past four years at Benton High School where she broke numerous school and parish scoring records while being named Miss Basketball in the state of Louisiana as a senior. “Lulu is beyond her years,” Weatherspoon said. “She has an amazing understanding of the game. She is confident in herself and fears no one. You won’t notice that she is a freshman. She has tremendous range. She has tremendous offensive moves to get off any shot. It was great to get Lulu into our system. She is one kid that will be an immediate impact to the success of this team.” Perry, a 5-foot-7 water bug, averaged 29.1 points per game as a senior at Benton while leading the Tigers to the state semifinals for the first time since 1997. While earning all-district, all-city and all-state honors along the way, she


Posts Louisiana Tech has more size on its roster this season then it has had in some time as the Lady Techsters enter the year with six players on the team listed at 6-foot or taller, including five listed at 6-foot-2 or taller. Weatherspoon, who played with the likes of Erica Westbrooks, Venus Lacy and Nora Lewis during her days in a LA Tech uniform, knows that a productive, dominate post game is one of the main keys to returning to the NCAA Tournament. Tech lost its leading scorer and rebounder from last year with the graduation of Shantale Bramble-Donaldson, but Weatherspoon should have more than enough weapons at her disposal in the painted area with the likes of senior Brittany Lewis (Orange Park, Fla./Temple), juniors Jasmine Bryant (Bossier, La./Southern-Shreveport) and Tavasha Anderson (Grenada, Miss./Grenada HS), sophomores Whitney Frazier (El Dorado, Ark./El Dorado HS) and Savanna Langston (El Dorado, Ark./Parker’s Chapel HS) and freshman Veanca Hall (Monroe, La./Richwood HS). Anderson possesses the most intimidating build in the lane for Tech as the 6-foot-3-inch center boasts a strong physique but must prove that she can have success on both ends of the floor in order to log more minutes. “She has to dominate the painted area for us to be successful,” Weatherspoon said. “She has years under her belt, and she knows what we need. She must be a dominate player in the paint for us this year. She should be known as one of the best post players around.” As a sophomore, Anderson made two starts while seeing action in 29 games for LA Tech, averaging 4.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per contest. The redshirt junior scored in double figures five times, including a career-high 17 points in wins over Houston, Nevada and New Mexico State. She also added double figure scoring games against LSU and Idaho. Frazier had a productive rookie campaign for the Lady Techsters, earning all-freshman and all-defensive team honors in the WAC while also being voted the Freshman of the Year in the state of Louisiana by the Louisiana Sports

Writers Association. “What an amazing year she had last year,” Weatherspoon said. “That experience will carry over to this year. She is an inside-outside player. She has great quickness to the rim, but she needs to finish more consistently at the rim. She stayed positive and focused last year. She is a very coachable kid. I really believe she will be a great player because of her desire to want to be great. She will be one of our go-to players.” As a true freshman, Frazier started 26 games while seeing action in all 32 and averaged 9.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals per contest while shooting 42 percent from the field and 79 percent from the free throw line. The 6-foot1 forward recorded 10 double digit scoring games, including a career-high 25 points in a road win at Utah State. In that contest, she scored all 25 points in the second half becoming only the second LA Tech player to ever score 25 or more in a half (Sheila Ethridge). Langston gained some valuable experience off the bench during her freshman season as the 6-foot-2-inch forward saw action in 19 games, making one start. Despite her size, Langston is very versatile with her ability to knock down

the perimeter shots. “She is a tremendous shooter with great form,” Weatherspoon said. “She is consistent in her shooting. Last year was a learning experience for her. She now understands the strength she needs in order to defend in the post and play in the post. I like to move her around on the perimeter because she feels comfortable out there. She has great vision for a post and can find her teammates. I’m looking for her to really be a contributor.” Langston averaged 1.2 points and 1.6 rebounds per contest last year while shooting 27 percent from the field and hitting a pair of three-pointers. She earned her first career start in a road win at Houston and scored a seasonhigh four points against Utah State and New Mexico State. After graduating from Temple and enrolling at Louisiana Tech to pursue her master’s degree, Lewis will have one year of eligibility remaining for the Lady Techsters. The 6-foot-2 forward started her career at Virginia Tech before playing the past two seasons for the Owls in the Atlantic 10. “She will be big for us,” Weatherspoon said. “She is skilled in every as-

Her teammates will be comfortable knowing she will protect the painted area. She is not afraid of anything.” The two-time all-district performer averaged 25.0 points per game as a senior while earning second team all-state honors for the Rams.

pect of the game. One thing she does well is she can stretch defenses. When she gets in the painted area, she understands the little intricacies of being a post player. Her footwork is excellent. She demands the ball and when she gets it, she will demand double teams. She has good vision and can locate teammates. Her experience (at Virginia Tech and Temple) is invaluable.” During her junior year at Temple, Lewis averaged 8.0 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while making 18 starts and seeing action in 31 contests. She proved her versatility when she came one assist shy of recording a triple double (11 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists) in a WNIT first round win over Quinnipiac. She scored a career-high 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in an A-10 semifinal loss to Dayton. Bryant signed with LA Tech after playing the past two years for Southern of Shreveport as the 6-foot-2-inch forward comes from a family of athletes. Her father, Larry Robinson, spent time with eight different NBA teams from 1990 through 2002 while her brother Justin plays at North Texas. “Jasmine is tremendously energetic,” Weatherspoon said. “She has a great

pedigree. I like her constant communication on the floor. She is always motivating her teammates. She needs to work more with her footwork and post work. She is relentless on the boards. She is constantly moving. She runs the floor like a guard. She demands the basketball. She will be important for us.” Bryant was named first team allMississippi-Louisiana Conference last year after averaging 15.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game and shooting 49 percent from the field and 65 percent from the free throw line. She was ranked as the 24th best power forward in the junior college ranks by Dan Olson’s Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. Hall is another versatile interior player as the true freshman signed with LA Tech after a stellar prep career at Richwood High School in Monroe. The lanky 6-foot-2 forward also lettered in track and field in high school, competing in the high jump, long jump, triple jump and hurdles. “Veanca is someone that I think some people will take lightly,” Weatherspoon said. “This kid is excited to be a part of the program. She has strength and power in the paint. We will work on

TERESA WEATHERSPOON Head Coach

Not too many women’s basketball programs can boast a head coach that won a national title as a player. Not too many programs lay claim to a head coach that played professionally in the WNBA. And even fewer programs have a head coach that won an Olympic gold medal. However, Louisiana Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon has done all three ... and more. Weatherspoon, entering her fifth year at her alma mater, is one of the marquee faces and names in the women’s game, and rightly so. 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, the four-time Hall of Famer 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 reins of the program in February of 2009. Since then, she has led the program to three postseason appearances, including back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and 2011. And although Weatherspoon and Co. missed out on a fourth straight postseason trip last year, Louisiana Tech is poised for another run to an event that has been synonymous with the Lady Techster program since the late 1970s. A two-time all-American during her playing days at LA Tech, Weatherspoon has recorded an overall record of 73-33 as head coach - 41-12 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 ... the first since 2006. Tech also took ACC champion and 9thranked 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. She followed that up with an impressive 2010-11 that saw LA Tech win 24 games, including a 15-point victory over Georgia, capture the WAC regular season title, earn votes in the AP and ESPN Top 25 polls and earn the program’s 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Tech also posted the program’s 1,000th victory with a win over Nevada in the WAC Tournament semifinals.

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 g u i d e d Louisiana Tech to a 9 - 2

player at Louisiana Tech. During her Louisiana Tech playing career which spanned from 1984 through 1988, Weatherspoon was a two-time Kodak AllAmerican (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 in the WNBA -- seven with the New York Liberty and one with the Los Angeles Sparks. During her time in the league, Weatherspoon started 220 straight games and led the Liberty to three WNBA championship ap-

pearances 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. She still ranks No. 3 in career assists (1,338) and No. 8 in career steals (465) in the history of the WNBA. This past summer, she was named one of the 15 greatest players in the history of the WNBA. 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.

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 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 alltime greatest players, made the decision an easy one for Tech administrators. Weatherspoon’s career accomplishments tell the story of one of the top players to ever play the game collegiately, internationally and professionally. And as impressive as her professional playing resume is, it doesn’t hold a candle to the one she b u i l t as a

DAVID CAPUTO Assistant Coach

David Caputo enters his second season as a member of 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 is in charge of post player development and assists with recruiting and defensive schemes, and he has been successful as both an assistant coach and head coach on both the men’s and women’s side as well as all levels of intercollegiate basketball. “He is an Italian guy that people just love,” Weatherspoon said. “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. “Having someone who feels that way only helps make great things happen. His vision for this program is the same as mine. He is just amazing. It will be interesting to see who stays in the gym the longest; he’s that type of coach.” During his first year on the LA Tech sideline, Caputo helped mentor All-Western Athletic Conference forward Shantale Bramble-Donaldson, who played for him at Indian River State College before signing with the Lady Techsters. BrambleDonaldson was one of the leading scorers and rebounders in the WAC as a senior. He was also instrumental in LA Tech signing a Top 60 ranked recruiting class which included two high school prep stars, three junior college signees and a pair of Division I transfers. Prior to arriving at Tech, the 33-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 his 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 signed with the Lady Techsters as Shantale Bramble-Donaldson and Brittany Hardy played for both programs. 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-to-back regular season titles.

Assistant Coach

Since arriving on the Louisiana Tech campus as a member of the Lady Techster coaching staff in 2008, Sara Carter has provided plenty of drive, a lot of intensity and even a little comic relief for head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. During her playing days at South Alabama, Carter was known for her passion for the game and drive to excel on-andoff the playing floor. Those same characteristics - and a great sense of humor - have followed her into the coaching ranks as she enters her fifth season in Ruston. On the court, Carter is all business which makes it no surprise that Weatherspoon relies on her for numerous responsibilities. After all, Weatherspoon fits that same mold. “Fire,” Weatherspoon said. “If I use one word to describe Sara, it’s fire. 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 role in the Lady Techsters return to the top of the Western Athletic Conference and to the NCAA Tournament since joining the program in the summer of 2008. In three of her four years on the LA Tech staff, Carter has helped guide the Lady Techsters to the postseason, including back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances. Tech captured WAC regular season titles in 2008-09 and 2010-11 and the WAC Tournament title in 2009-10 while also advancing to the championship game of the league tournament in 2012. Carter works closely with the Lady Techster guards, a group that has seen a vast improvement in assist to turnover ratio since her arrival while seeing three players earn all-conference honors, including graduated point guard Jasmine Bendolph the past two seasons. 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. The Lady Techsters have seen their team grade point average increase while the program recorded its highest multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) ever at 987. She was also instrumental in LA Tech signing a Top 60 ranked recruiting class this past year which included two high school prep stars, three junior college signees and a pair of Division I transfers. 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 twotime 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. She earned her bachelor’s in physical education from South Alabama in 2005 and her master’s in health promotion from Ole Miss in 2007.

COURTNEY SIMMONS Assistant Coach

Fresh off a national championship title at Trinity Valley Community College, Courtney Simmons enters her first year at Louisiana Tech as she joins Sara Carter and David Caputo to complete head coach Teresa Weatherspoon’s coaching staff in Ruston. Simmons comes to Ruston after spending the past two years as the recruiting coordinator and assistant coach at the perennial NJCAA power in Athens, Texas. “The thing about Courtney that is so special is her ability to recruit,” Weatherspoon said. “She has done a tremendous job of bringing in great talent everywhere she has been. That is due to the hard work of putting in the time and effort to research and find the right student-athletes. She has a very good understanding of young people, which is good for me as a head coach. She will give a lot of positive feedback to them, on and off the floor. “It’s good when you have someone that is excited to be a part of your program. She is excited to be here, and she has brought some great team-building ideas. She will also help us with our community service program. She will be a great help to Sara in developing our guards. She is a bright young lady and an up-and-coming coach.” Simmons main responsibilities for the Lady Techsters will include on-the-floor-coaching with an emphasis on guard development, recruiting, scouting, and heading up the program’s community service efforts. The Baton Rouge native, who played collegiately at Trinity Valley for one year and Louisville for two years, helped guide the Cardinals to the 2012 National Junior College Athletic Association national championship title this past season as well as back-to-back appearances in the national title game (TVCC fell in the championship game in 2011). Simmons was instrumental in signing a pair of nationally ranked recruiting classes during her time at TVCC, including signing the 2012 NJCAA National Player of the Year in Sha’Kayla Caples and a 2012 Kodak All-American in Keuna Flax. Simmons also spent a two-year stint as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Louisiana-Lafayette from 2008 through 2010. In addition to her coaching duties at Louisiana-Lafayette, Simmons also signed the 7th rated junior college player in the country in Danyell Oliver while with the Ragin’ Cajuns. As a player, Simmons helped lead TVCC to a 32-3 record in 2005-06, a Region XIV Conference regular season and tournament championships and a sixth place finish in the national tournament after transferring from Tulane. Upon leaving TVCC, she went on to play two seasons at Louisville, where she received her degree in communications. At Louisville, she played in 30 games, helping the Cardinals to a 26-10 season record and 10-6 Big East mark. Simmons helped Louisville post victories over three ranked teams in her final season - No. 5 Rutgers, No. 13 West Virginia and No. 25 DePaul. Simmons is fluent in sign language and volunteered at the 2007 Mini Deaf Olympics. She also volunteered at the 2007 Scotlandville Alumni Association Basketball Clinic and the 2003 and 2006 Southland Girls All-Star Basketball Camp.

2012-13 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL


2011-12 Season in Review Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Christiana Shorter scored 20 points to lead four Missouri State players in double figures as the Lady Bears defeated Louisiana Tech 78-65 Friday night before 1,788 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. Missouri State (1-0) shot 51 percent (2855) from the field for the game, including a blistering 62 percent (16-26) in the final 20 minutes of play. It marks only the fifth time in the last 76 games that a Teresa Weatherspoon-coached Lady Techster team has allowed an opponent to hit more than half of their field goal attempts. “You have to give Missouri State a lot of credit to come in here and play with such energy on our floor,” Weatherspoon said. “However, when you talk about our players, we didn’t bring the energy we needed in order to play against a team like this. When you get a chance to open the season in front of your home crowd, then that should have been enough to energize you. “When we learn to bring the energy and effort, we will be a very, very good basketball team because I have some very talented young ladies. We just didn’t accept the challenge tonight. That’s what was so disappointing. They gave us a good ole fashion whipping. We will learn from it.” After Tech had overcome an 11-point deficit early in the second half to tie the game at 5555 with 9:22 to play on a layup by senior Kiara Young, Missouri State responded holding the Lady Techsters scoreless over the next four-plus

minutes. During that stretch, Missouri State forced four turnovers and held Tech to 0-of-5 shooting while beating the Lady Techsters in transition. Casey Garrison’s free throw with 5:50 to play in the game upped the Lady Bears lead to 68-55 as Tech would get no closer than nine points the rest of the way. The two teams went back and forth in the opening half of play as the game saw eight ties and seven lead changes. Tech’s biggest lead came at 15-10 on a Young layup with 10:12 to play in the half but Missouri State answered with a 6-0 run to claim a 16-15 advantage. Tech guard Jasmine Bendolph gave Tech its last lead of the first half on a jumper with 2:22 to play before the Lady Bears used a 10-0 run to go up 36-27. Tavasha Anderson’s conventional three-point play with 18 seconds to play in the half closed the deficit to 36-30 at the intermission. Missouri State opened the second half scoring the first five points to lead 41-30 before Shantale Bramble-Donaldson led LA Tech back, scoring 11 points during a 18-7 run that saw the Lady Techsters tie the game at 48-48. BrambleDonaldson led Tech with 18 points and nine rebounds in the game. For the game Tech shot 44 percent (27-61) from the field but hit only 3-of-13 three-pointers and only 8-of-14 free throws. In addition to Shorter’s big night, Jaleshia Roberson added 18 points, Garrison 13 points and Whitney Eddie 11 points.

Oral Roberts 92, LA Tech 71 Nov. 19, 2011 Mabee Center in Tulsa, Okla. Kevi Luper scored 28 points to lead four players in double figures as Oral Roberts defeated Louisiana Tech 92-71 before 1,215 fans at the Mabee Center Saturday afternoon. Oral Roberts (4-0) shot 58 percent (23-40) from the field in the second half to break open a 38-38 halftime score as the Golden Eagles defeated the Lady Techsters for the first time in the series seven-game history. Louisiana Tech (0-2) got off to a strong start building as much as a 10-point first half lead at 33-23 on a Whitney Jones three-pointer with 5:39 to play. However, the Golden Eagles hit 6-of-10 field goals down the stretch and Savanna Buck’s layup off an inbounds play at the buzzer sent the two teams into the locker room tied at 38-38. Although Tech shot only 37 percent (13-35) from the field in the opening 20 minutes, the Lady Techsters committed only seven turnovers against an ORU team that entered the game forcing 28 per game. Tech also made the most of the Golden Eagle miscues, outscoring them 14-4 in points off turnovers. Senior Angie Felton came off the bench to score eight first half points while backcourt teammate Whitney Jones added nine points. “It was a tale of two halves for us,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “In the first half we did everything that we set out to do. We attacked them on the offensive end and really handled their zone pressure well. We defended well. We kept Luper from getting easy shots. We helped defensively. I thought we played really well on their home floor in the first half. “In the second half, we got impatient on the offensive end. We didn’t defend. We didn’t help. We didn’t rebound. All the things we did well in the first half, we didn’t do in the second half. You can’t do that against a good basketball team on their floor.” Shantale Bramble-Donaldson scored the first bucket of the second half to give LA Tech a 40-38 lead but it would be its final as Oral Roberts scored seven straight to take a 45-40 advantage on a Jordan Pyle layup with 17:20 to play. Freshman Whitney Frazier scored three straight to close the gap to 45-43. However, it was as close at Tech would get as the Lady Techsters struggled defensively. Despite shooting 50 percent (12-24) in the second half, Tech got outscored 54-33 in the final 20 minutes of play as Luper scored 18 of her game-high 28. “I saw flashes and stretches of really good basketball, especially in that first half,” Weatherspoon said. “We showed how good we can be when we execute the game plan. I’m disappointed in our effort in the second half, but we are going to get there. We are going to keep working and keep getting better.” Felton led LA Tech, hitting 6-of-10 field

goals, including 4-of-7 three-pointers, to score a career-high 16 points in 24 minutes of action. “I thought that was Angie’s best basketball since she got here,” Weatherspoon said. “I am proud of her. She is a great shooter who just needs to stay confident.” Kiara Young and Jasmine Bendolph each added 10 points for Tech. Tech was outrebounded 44-26, including 25-7 in the second half.

LA Tech 64 UALR 48 Nov. 22, 2011 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Louisiana Tech held UALR scoreless for more than 10 minutes in the first half as the Lady Techster overcame an early seven-point deficit to pick up their first win of the season 64-48 Tuesday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. Jasmine Bendolph hit a career-high five three-pointers and scored 19 points while Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added 10 points as the Lady Techsters (1-2) defeated the Trojans (1-3) for the seventh time in nine meetings. “It was rough,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We started out rough. We didn’t shoot it well and we were allowing them to get some wide open looks. We finally settled down and played better. This was a big win for us confidence-wise as we head into three tough games this week.” Marian Kursh scored 10 points to lead the Trojans to a 19-12 lead on a three-pointer by Janette Meriex with 11:29 to play in the opening half. However, the Lady Techsters clamped down defensively, holding UALR to only two points the rest of the half as the Trojans hit only 1-of-12 field goals and committed 11 turnovers during that stretch.

Bendolph provided the majority of the offense for Tech in the first half, connecting on four three-pointers. Her three-pointer with 1:55 to play in the first stanza gave the Lady Techsters their first lead of the game at 21-19. Tech led 26-21 at the half. Tech shot only 29 percent (10-35) in the opening half while UALR hit 31 percent (7-22). Angie Felton gave Tech a nine-point lead at 34-25 with a jumper at the 15:12 mark of the second half before UALR used a 13-7 run over the next eight minutes to cut the advantage to 41-38 with 7:53 to play. However, the Lady Techsters offensive execution improved late as Tech hit 7-out-of-8 field goals during the next four minutes to push the advantage to 59-45 with 1:47 to play. Kiara Young added eight points and a game-high eight rebounds for Tech which outrebounded UALR 46-41 for the game, including 20 offensive boards. “We knew we needed to be active on the boards tonight and get some second chance points,” Weatherspoon said. “I thought we did a good job of that. It’s a must that all five on the floor rebound for us at all times.” For the game, Tech shot 38 percent (25-66) from the field, 7-of-19 from the three point line but only 7-of-18 from the free throw line. UALR hit 32 percent (15-47) from the field, 4-of-12 from beyond the arc and 14-of-21 from the free throw line. Kursh led UALR with 25 points while Merriex added 15 points.

Seton Hall 72, LA Tech 69 Nov. 24, 2011 University of Virgin Islands Sports and Fitness Center in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands Jasmine Crew scored 35 points, including

26 in the second half, as Seton Hall rallied to down Louisiana Tech 72-69 at the University of Virgin Islands Sports and Fitness Center Thursday in the first day of the 2011 Paradise Jam. Crew hit 9-of-23 field goals and 16-of-21 free throws while playing 39 minutes. “I feel like a broken record,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “It was a tale of two halves again. We came out and executed on both ends of the floor in the first half. Seton Hall didn’t do anything differently in the second half. We just decided for some reason to play differently. “I give (Crew) a lot of credit. She attacked us. She got to the free throw line 21 times because she was the aggressor. That’s what we should have been doing, but we didn’t. Give Seton Hall credit.” Seton Hall (4-1) entered the game ranked as one of the top defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to 47.5 points per game and only 29 percent shooting from the field. However, LA Tech (1-3) hit 59 percent (16-27) of its field goals in the opening half to take a 43-30 lead into the locker room. Senior guard Whitney Jones started a 10-0 run by the Lady Techsters late in the first half with a three-pointer at the 6:26 mark and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson finished it with a 15-foot jumper with five minutes to play as Tech eventually built a 43-28 advantage. Crew’s jumper with 15 seconds to play in the half made the score 43-30 at the break. Jones led Tech in the first half scoring all 11 of her points, connecting on 3-of-3 from the three-point line, while Brittany Hardy and Jasmine Bendolph each added seven points in the first half. Crew took over in the second half, scoring 21 of Seton Hall’s first 28 points as the Pirates slowly clawed their way back into the game. A Nicosia Henry layup with 6:42 to play tied the game at 62-62, and a Crew free throw with 5:59 to play gave the Pirates their first lead since 1715 with 12:34 to play in the opening half. Seton Hall pushed its advantage out to 71-66 before Bendolph drained a three-pointer from the top of the key with 51 seconds to play. After a defensive stop by the Lady Techsters, LA Tech called two timeouts to set up their final possession. “The play was designed to get the ball in Jasmine’s hands and not leave her hands,” Weatherspoon said. “Unfortunately, it left her hands. We didn’t get a very good look.” Felton was forced to take a contested 17-footer which was off target and LA Tech had to foul. Tajay Ashmeade hit 1-of-2 free throws with five seconds to play and Bendolph’s halfcourt heave at the buzzer was just wide as the Pirates completed the comeback. Bendolph led Tech with 15 points while Jones added 11 points and Bramble-Donaldson 10 points. Hardy added nine points and Kiara Young eight points. For the game, Tech shot 49 percent (25-51) from the field, including 8-of-16 from the threepoint line while Seton Hall hit 47 percent (21-45) of its field goals. Seton Hall won the game at the free throw line where the Pirates hit 28-of-40 while Tech hit 11-of-18. Seton Hall outrebounded Tech 36-23.


LA Tech 84, Old Dominion 71 Nov. 25, 2011

Louisiana Tech shot a season-high 58 percent from the field and four Lady Techsters scored in double figures in an 84-71 win over Old Dominion Friday afternoon at the University of Virgin Islands Sports and Recreation Center in day two of the Paradise Jam. Shantale Bramble-Donaldson scored a career-high tying 18 points while Jasmine Bendolph added 17 points as Louisiana Tech built a 15-point second half lead and withstood an Old Dominion rally. “The difference in today and yesterday was our kids accepted the challenge,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon, who saw her team blow a 13-point halftime lead in a 72-69 loss to Seton Hall on Thursday. “We knew we were going to be undersized and our kids accepted the challenge of beating their man to the spot and being physical all game long. “I’m proud of our effort. We played hard for 40 minutes. This shows what you can accomplish when you do that. We had a lot of players step up, and when we can be balanced offensively, we are tough to stop. We have a great shooting team.” One day after hitting 49 percent of their field goals in the loss to the Pirates, the Lady Techsters connected on 31-of-54, including 64 percent (16-of-25) in a second half that saw them score 51 points. Tech’s ability to knock down open shots was crucial against an Old Dominion team that boasted the 6-foot-3 tandem of Tia Lewis (24 points, 10 rebounds) and Shaveka Richards (18 points, 5 rebounds). After holding a nine-point halftime lead, Tech came out in the final stanza and pushed the advantage to 46-31 on a three-pointer by Angie Felton with 15:51 to play. ODU (1-5) wouldn’t go quietly as the Monarchs - who defeated Alabama 77-76 on Thursday - chipped away at the deficit, cutting it to as few as five on three separate occasions. A Richard’s jumper at the 4:00 minute mark of the game closed the gap to 70-65. However, with the shot clock running down on Tech’s next possession, Bendolph hit a huge three-pointer that ignited an 8-0 run as the lead was once extended to double figures at 78-65. Tech hit 8-of-11 free throws in the final two minutes to seal the victory, improving its alltime record against Old Dominion to 15-5. In the first half, Old Dominion came out strong building an 18-13 advantage on a Richards’ short jumper in the lane with 10:40 to play in the opening half. However, sophomore guard Jelena Vucinic provided a huge spark off the bench as the New Zealand native hit a driving layup and a three-pointer while recording two rebounds, one assist and a drawn charge as Tech used a 20-6 lead to close the half. “I am so proud of Jelena,” Weatherspoon said. “I think this really did her some good. I think she realizes now that she can compete with anyone. We was a big factor in our success today.”

Alabama 67, LA Tech 59 Nov. 26, 2011 University of Virgin Islands Sports and Fitness Center in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands Kiara Young and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson each registered double doubles but it wasn’t enough as Louisiana Tech couldn’t overcome 23 turnovers in its 67-59 loss to Alabama Saturday at the 2011 Paradise Jam. With the victory, Alabama (5-2) captured the title in the Island Division while Louisiana Tech finished third with a three-game record of 1-2. For the third consecutive game on the island, Louisiana Tech (2-4) shot the basketball well as the Lady Techsters hit 44 percent (2454) of their field goals against the Crimson Tide. However, 23 turnovers by LA Tech proved to be the difference as the Crimson Tide outscored the Lady Techsters 25-13 on points off of turnovers. Fifteen of the turnovers came in the opening 20 minutes of play as Alabama built as much as a 13-point lead before entering the halftime locker room leading by eight. Tech cut the lead down to one at 43-42 with 12:26 to play in the game on a Whitney Frazier layup, but Bama used an 11-3 run over the next five minutes to push the advantage back to 56-47. The Lady Techsters would get no closer than seven points the rest of the way as Alabama won for the second time in three games on the island. Tech took its biggest lead of the game early as a Whitney Frazier free throw at the 18:33 mark of the opening half gave the Lady Techsters a 3-1 advantage. With the two teams tied at 5-5, Alabama capitalized on five turnovers over the next four minutes to extend its lead to 14-5. A Young jumper with 13:19 to play stopped the 9-0 run as the lead was 14-7. With Alabama leading 20-8 at the 11:30 mark, Tech used an 8-2 run as a pair of threepointers by Jelena Vucinic and Whitney Jones made the score 22-16. The Crimson Tide pushed the advantage back out to 29-16 on a Jasmine Robinson three-pointer at the 6:24 mark. The lead remained 13 at 33-20 when Tech used an 8-3 run to close the half as the Crimson Tide led 36-28 at the half. The Lady Techsters started the second half handling the pressure as Tech cut into the advantage. Frazier triggered the run, scoring five straight points as her layup with 12:26 to play in the game cut the score to 43-42 in Alabama’s favor. However, Bama freshman Aneesha Daniels scored four straight points in the paint to help the Crimson Tide extend their lead back out to nine. Young, who was named to the all-tourna-

ment team, scored 15 points and grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds while Bramble-Donaldson added 11 points and 10 boards. Jones also added 11 points and five rebounds for the Techsters. Robinson led Alabama with 19 points while Ericka Russell scored 12 and Khristin Lee added 11.

Tulane 61, LA Tech 52 Dec. 2, 2011 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Whitney Jones scored a season-high 20 points and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added a double double with 14 points and 10 rebounds but it wasn’t enough as Louisiana Tech fell to Tulane 61-52 Friday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. Tech (2-5), which entered the game ranked in the Top 20 in the country in field goal percentage, shot a season-low 29 percent (18-61) from the field as Tulane led from the opening tip and never looked back. The Green Wave (6-1) used an early 10-0 run to take a 12-2 lead with 13:08 to play in the opening half on a Tyria Snow jumper. Tech responded with a 13-4 run over the next nine plus minutes as a Jasmine Bendolph driving layup cut the Tulane advantage to 16-15. Tulane led 2421 at halftime. Tulane came out in the second half strong, scoring the first nine points as Janique Kautsky’s free throws at the 15:52 mark gave the Green Wave its biggest lead to that point at 33-21. Tech eventually found itself trailing 4328 on an Olivia Grayson layup with just over 10 minutes to play. However, behind the strong play of Jones who scored 14 of Tech’s first 18 points of the second half, the Lady Techsters made a run.

Jones scored nine points during an 11-1 run as her three-pointer with 6:06 to play cut the deficit to 44-39 and forced the Green Wave to call a timeout. Grayson answered with a huge threepointer and Brett Benzio added a layup on its next possession as Tulane pushed the lead back out to double figures. Tech would get no closer than seven the rest of the game. Jones and Bramble-Donaldson combined to hit 12-of-29 field goals but the rest of the Louisiana Tech team was only 6-of-32 from the field while committing 19 turnovers in the game. Grayson led Tulane with 19 points and nine boards while Benzio added 16 points, 16 rebounds and six blocked shots.

Western Kentucky 69, LA Tech 54 Dec. 5, 2011 E. A. Diddle Arena in Bowling Green, Kent. Freshman Chasity Gooch scored a careerhigh 19 points to lead Western Kentucky to a 69-54 win over Louisiana Tech Monday night before 814 fans at E.A. Diddle Arena. Tech (2-6) lost for the third straight time as the Lady Techsters shot only 35 percent (2160) from the field in the loss while surrendering 19 offensive rebounds and committing 18 turnovers. Whitney Jones led three players in double figures for the Lady Techsters with 13 points while Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added 12 points and 10 rebounds and Jasmine Bendolph added 11 points and four steals. For the second straight game, Louisiana Tech never saw the lead. The game was tied three different times in the early going, the last coming at 12-12 on a Jones jumper with 11:12 to play in the opening half. Chaney Means hit on the first of her three first half three-pointers to give Western Kentucky (2-6) a 15-12 advantage and after a pair of free throws by Tech freshman Whitney Frazier cut the deficit to 15-14, Western used a 9-2 run to push the advantage to 24-16 with 4:33 to play. Back-to-back three-pointers by Jasmine Bendolph bookended a trifecta by Means and cut the Lady Toppers lead to 27-22 with 3:01 to play. However, Western used a 9-2 run to end the half highlighted by Vanessa Obafemi’s 45foot desperation heave at the buzzer as Western led 36-24 at the half. Tech had an opportunity to close the gap early in the second half as Western didn’t score on its first seven possessions, but the Lady Techsters misfired on their first five attempts from the field and a pair of free throws as well. A Bramble-Donaldson layup at the 16:05 of the second half broke the drought and cut the deficit to 10 but Keshia Mosley answered with a layup for WKU to push the lead back to 12. The lead remained double figures as WKU pushed it to as many as 15 at 54-39 on another Obafemi three-pointer with 8:13 to play before Tech chipped away and cut it to single digits at 60-51 on a conventional three-point play by Bramble-Donaldson with just over four minutes remaining.

However, Western scored five straight points and Tech got no closer than 13 the rest of the way. In addition to Gooch’s career-high, Mosley added 12 points and Obafemi chipped in with 10 points. Western outrebounded Tech 44-35, including 19 offensive rebounds.

LA Tech 79, Houston 53 Dec. 7, 2011 Hofheinz Pavilion in Houston, Texas Tavasha Anderson scored a career-high 17 points and Whitney Frazier added a career-high 16 points to lead Louisiana Tech to a 79-53 win over Houston before 507 fans at Hofheinz Pavilion Wednesday night. With the victory, Tech improved to 3-6 on the season as the Lady Techsters prepare to host Mississippi State Sunday at the Thomas Assembly Center at 2 p.m. Anderson connected on 6-of-8 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws while adding a careerhigh seven rebounds in 23 minutes while Frazier was 7-of-12 from the field, including her first career three-pointer in 34 minutes of action. “We asked these two kids to play low, slow and under control,” Weatherspoon said. “It started yesterday in practice and continued tonight. I am proud of both of them. It’s so important for them to continue to build on this performance. We need them this year. “I was also proud of the way Jasmine Bendolph delivered the basketball. She found the open player all night long. To see a stat line like hers tonight, that will make any coach proud.” Bendolph added 14 points, 11 assists and five rebounds while committing only two turnovers in 34 minutes of action. It was her second career double double. After a slow offensive start by both teams saw a 2-2 tie at the first officials timeout, Bendolph scored five straight points to ignite a 12-2 run as Tech took a 14-4 advantage on a Brittany Hardy three at the 11:34 mark of the first half. Houston answered with a bucket before Hardy drained another three - the second of three in the first half for the Orlando, Florida native - as Tech pushed the lead out to 23-8 with 7:31 to play. The Lady Techsters biggest lead of the first half came at 36-16 on an Anderson

layup before the Cougars scored the final four points of the half. The Cougars tried to make a run early in the second half, cutting the lead down to 12 on two different occasions - the final time at 43-31 - but Frazier and Anderson scored the next eight points for Tech and an Angie Felton three with 13:18 to play gave Tech a 54-33 lead. Tech biggest advantage of the night came at 77-48 on a Shantale Bramble-Donaldson bucket with 2:56 to play. For the game, Tech shot 48 percent (31-64) from the field, including eight three-pointers, and 9-of-11 from the free throw line. Houston hit 36 percent (18-50) from the field but only 14of-28 from the free throw line. The Lady Techsters outrebounded Houston 38-34.

LA Tech 63, Mississippi State 62 Dec. 11, 2011 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Freshman Courtney Hayes free throw with 23.5 seconds to play lifted Louisiana Tech to a 63-62 win over Mississippi State Sunday afternoon before 2,243 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. After Hayes hit 1-of-2 free throws to give Tech (4-6) the one-point advantage, Mississippi State (7-2) had one last opportunity to win. However, Diamber Johnson’s off-balance floater in the lane was short and Tech prevented the Bulldogs from getting the offensive board as the final seconds ticked off the clock. “Our kids were undersized but you saw the fight in them at the end of this game,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We refused to allow a second opportunity on that miss. Our kids were jumping and jumping and jumping just trying to keep the ball away from them, and then you saw three or four bodies on the floor on the loose ball. I am proud of the way we fought and the effort we gave today.” After trailing for the majority of the game - Tech didn’t take its first lead until Jasmine Bendolph’s three-pointer with 13:08 to play in the game - , the Lady Techsters fought back and took an eight-point lead at 61-53 with 1:50 to play on a driving layup by Kiara Young. Johnson hit a free throw to cut it to seven points and then completed a conventional


LA Tech 69, Arkansas State 59 Dec. 13, 2011 Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Ark. Jasmine Bendolph and Brittany Hardy each scored 17 points to lead Louisiana Tech to a 6959 win over Arkansas State before 938 fans at the Convocation Center Tuesday night. The victory was the third straight for LA Tech (5-6) which heads to New York this week-

end to compete in the St. John’s Chartwell Holiday Classic starting Saturday with a 2 p.m. tipoff against Memphis. Hardy came off the bench to hit 7-of-10 field goals, including 3-of-4 from three-point range, and scored a career-high 17 points with 12 coming in a first half that saw the Lady Techster take a 33-27 lead into the locker room. Bendolph hit 7-of-9 field goals, 1-of-2 from beyond the arc, as she scored 11 in the second half, including eight straight during one stretch. “We need Jasmine Bendolph offensively,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We need her offense and leadership every night. We know what Brittany is capable of doing. She can really shoot the basketball and as she continues to get in better shape, she will only get better for us.” For the third straight game, the Lady Techster bench came up big as Hardy, Tavasha Anderson, Angie Felton and Kiara Young combined to score 39 points in the game. In Tech’s three-game winning streak, the Lady Techster reserves have scored 111 points compared to 100 points by the Tech starters. “It’s so big for me to be able to go to our bench and know that they are going to produce,” Weatherspoon said. “They are doing a great job. For us to continue to be successful, we need production from as many people as possible.” In a first half that saw four ties and 10 lead changes, Arkansas State’s biggest lead was only two points on several different occasions. A pair of free throws by Jane Morrill at the 5:49 mark of the first half gave Arkansas State its last lead at 21-20. A Whitney Frazier layup followed by five straight points by Hardy gave Tech a 26-20 lead. A conventional three-point play by Anderson with 1:07 to play in the opening stanza gave the Lady Techsters their biggest advantage of the half at 31-24. Tech hit 48 percent (15-31) of its field goals in the first half compared to only 28 percent (1034) by the Red Wolves but 10 first half turnovers allowed Arkansas State to stay close. The second half started with Arkansas State scoring five straight points as the Red Wolves cut the deficit to 33-32 on a Morrill layup less than three minutes into the final period. However, Hardy answered with a threepointer and Frazier added two free throws as the lead was pushed back to 38-32. With Tech leading 48-39 midway through the half, Bendolph caught fire scoring seven straight points on three straight trips down the floor. Her three-pointer - the team leading 22nd of the year - with 10:01 to play made the score 55-43. Tech’s biggest lead came at 60-45 on a Young free throw with 7:54 to play. Arkansas State would get no closer than nine the rest of the way. For the game, Tech shot 47 percent (25-53) from the field, 5-of-9 from the three-point line, and 14-of-21 from the free throw line. The Lady Techster outrebounded the Red Wolves 39-34. Morrill led Arkansas State with 20 points while Quinishia McDowell and Nene Hurst added 12 each. Tech leads the all-time series 37-2, including 29 straight victories.

Memphis 86, LA Tech 67 Dec. 17, 2011 Carnesecca Arena in Queens, N.Y. Shantale Bramble-Donaldson recorded her fourth double double of the year but it wasn’t enough as Memphis defeated Louisiana Tech 86-67 Saturday afternoon at Carnesecca Arena in the first day of the 2011 St. John’s Chartwell Holiday Classic. Brittany Carter scored 24 points and Jasmine Lee added 23 points as Memphis (9-1) won for the seventh straight time while snapping LA Tech’s (5-7) three-game winning streak. The Tigers shot 51 percent (31-61) from the field, including 64 percent (14-22) in the second half, while holding the Lady Techsters to only 33 percent (22-66) shooting. Memphis started the game strong, scoring the first eight points before Tech guard Whitney Jones nailed a three-pointer with 17:20 to play in the opening half to cut the deficit to 8-3. After the Tigers extended the advantage out to 12-3 on a jumper by Lee, Tech whittled the deficit down to four on a three-pointer by Jasmine Bendolph with 9:51 to play, making the score 21-17. After Tavasha Anderson’s short jumper off the glass made the score 23-19, Memphis used a 10-0 run over the next two minutes to build a 33-19 advantage. Lee and Carter each scored four points during the run. Kiara Young’s jumper stopped the run and a jumper by Bramble-Donaldson with 4:21 to play in the half made the score 36-27. Bramble-Donaldson scored 12 of her game-high 16 points in the opening half.

three-point play with 1:13 to play to close the gap to 61-57. On the play, Bendolph was whistled for her fifth foul as the senior point guard left the game as Weatherspoon inserted Hayes. Back-to-back turnovers by Tech allowed Mississippi State to cut the deficit to 61-60 with less than a minute to play. Hayes hit 1-of-2 free throws with 47 seconds left to push the advantage to 62-20 before Johnson’s short jumper in the lane tied the game at 62-62 with 36 seconds left. After a Tech timeout, Porsha Porter was called for a foul attempting a steal on the inbounds play in front of the Lady Techster bench, sending Hayes to the free throw line for the eventual winner. “Jasmine knows how important she is to us, and she knows we need her in the game down the stretch,” Weatherspoon said. “But I thought Courtney grew up a lot by being put in that situation. It was a good experience for her.” Tech’s bench came up big in the win as Young, Angie Felton, Brittany Hardy and Tavasha Anderson combined to score 32 points and pull down 17 rebounds. “That was big for us,” Weatherspoon said. “Tavasha Anderson made some strong moves inside and really wanted to battle with their bigs. Angie Felton ... her numbers might not pop off this box score but she was big with her leadership and her defense down the stretch. And I’m proud of Kiara Young. She didn’t play in our last game due to violation of team rules, but she didn’t hang her head. She accepted the consequences and came out here with a lot of energy and fire today.” Mississippi State, which entered the game shooting only 26 percent from the three-point line as a team, hit 8-of-16 from behind the arc in the opening 20 minutes as Johnson and Porsha Porter combined to hit seven and scored 30 of the Bulldogs’ 35 points. Tech shot only 28 percent (10-36) from the field in the opening half and trailed 35-28 at the break. However, the Lady Techsters hit 44 percent (11-25) from the field in the second half and attacked the basket, getting to the free throw line a total of 29 times - 18 coming in the final 20 minutes of play. Defensively, Tech held the Bulldogs to only 33 percent (22-66) from the field and forced 18 turnovers, outscoring MSU 17-7 on points off of turnovers. Bendolph led Tech with 12 points while Kiara Young added 10 points. Felton and Hardy each scored nine points. Johnson led Mississippi State with 25 points on 10-of-28 shooting while Porter added 23 points.

LA Tech 89, Prairie View A&M 83 (3 OT) Dec. 18, 2011 Carnesecca Arena in Queens, N.Y. Jelena Vucinic and Kiara Young each scored a career-high 21 points and Louisiana Tech overcame a 16-point second half deficit to defeat Prairie View A&M 89-83 in triple overtime Sunday afternoon at Carnesecca Arena on the campus of St. John’s University. After an Asha Hampton-Finch jumper at the 7:05 mark of the second half, Prairie View led LA Tech 57-41. However, behind a combined 13 points from Vucinic and Young, the Lady Techsters closed regulation with a 21-5 run as Jasmine Bendolph’s three-pointer with 49 seconds to play sent the game into overtime. Tech hit eight of its final nine shots in regulation. Both teams exchanged leads in the first overtime period - a free throw by Young at the 2:26 mark gave Tech its first lead since 29-27 at the 4:05 mark of the first half - as Prairie View held a 72-69 advantage with just under a min-

ute to play. Whitney Jones buried a three-pointer from the left wing to tie the game at 72 and then following two free throws by PVAM, Young hit a short jumper in the lane with 26 second remaining to send the game into the second extra period. Tech quickly built a modest 80-77 lead on a Tavasha Anderson layup with 2:06 to play in overtime No. 2, but a free throw cut it to two and then Kiara Etienne hit a jumper with 59 seconds to play to tie the game at 80-80. Tech had opportunities to win it but four missed free throws in the final minute by Whitney Frazier and Anderson and an off-balanced miss by Bendolph with two seconds remaining sent the contest into the third overtime. Bendolph scored four points during an 8-0 run by LA Tech in the third overtime as the Lady Techsters pulled away for the victory. Tech is now 19-13 all-time in overtime games, including a 2-0 mark in triple overtime contests. The game also marked the third largest come-from-behind victory in Lady Techster history, trailing only Old Dominion (-21 in 1989-90) and Iowa (-19 in 2005-06). Vucinic, making her first collegiate start, hit 7-of-12 field goals, 3-of-8 three-pointers and 4-of-5 free throws while playing 51 minutes. The sophomore entered the game having played only 62 minutes all season and having scored only 11 points. Frazier added 12 points and four assists, while Bendolph scored 11 points, dished out eight assists, recorded four steals and grabbed three rebounds. Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added 11 points and nine rebounds before fouling out. Bendolph earned all-tournament team honors. For the game, Tech shot 53 percent (36-68) from the field, but only 5-of-17 from the threepoint line and a mere 12-of-27 from the free throw line. Prairie View shot 41 percent (33-81) from the field and outrebounded Tech 55-40. Etienne led the Panthers with 24 points while Larissa Scott added 15 points and 19 rebounds.

Whitney Frazier scored a career-high 20 points to lead five Louisiana Tech players in double figures as the Lady Techsters defeated Tennessee Tech 82-64 before 2,479 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Wednesday afternoon. With the victory, Tech (7-7) enters Christmas break having won five of its last six games as the Lady Techsters will return to the floor Dec. 29 when they host LSU at 7 p.m. Frazier hit 9-of-11 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws and scored 16 of her game-high 20 points in the opening half helping Louisiana Tech build a 39-28 halftime advantage. The freshman from El Dorado, Arkansas hit her first four shots from the field as she scored eight of the first 10 points of the game for LA Tech. “Anytime you can get some easy buckets early, it really builds your confidence,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “Whitney looked very confident after her early success and you could see that confidence build as the game progressed. She took her time and knocked down some mid-range jumpers. It was good to see her have that type of success.” Frazier, whose previous career-high was 16 points in a win over Houston, joined Jelena Vucinic (13 points), Shantale Bramble-Donaldson (10 points), Jasmine Bendolph (10 points) and Angie Felton (10 points) in double figures. For the game, the Lady Techsters shot 56 percent (27-48) from the field, 5-of-8 from the three-point line and 74 percent (23-31) from the free throw line. Bendolph, who didn’t attempt a shot in the first half, ended the game 4-of-4 from the field with six assists and zero turnovers. “Jasmine really did a nice job of distributing the basketball for us early,” Weatherspoon said. “She can do so much more than just distribute though. She can score when she needs to and she can defend. She is a very smart player. She does whatever we need her to do to be successful.” Tennessee Tech (4-8) opened the game by hitting 7 of its first 14 field goals as Golden Eagles guard Tacarra Hayes scored nine early points. The game was tied at 16-16 at the first media timeout at the 13:53 mark but five straight points by the Lady Techsters - all coming at the free throw line - started a 20-8 run. Vucinic’s third three-pointer of the opening half gave Tech a 36-24 advantage with 3:39 to play. Tech entered the half leading 39-28. After Tennessee Tech opened the second half by scoring the first four points and cutting Tech’s lead down to 39-32, the Lady Techsters responded. Four points by both Vucinic and Bendolph highlighted a 12-2 run over the next three minutes as Tech built its advantage to 5134 with 16:59 to play. Defensively, Tech did a much better job against Hayes, who entered the game averaging over 28 points a game in her last three contests. The senior guard ended the night with 18 points - her season average - but was slowed


LSU 66, LA Tech 55 Dec. 29, 2011 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Courtney Jones scored 16 second half points to lead LSU to a 66-55 come-from-behind win over Louisiana Tech Thursday night before 4,930 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. For the second year in a row, Jones proved to be the difference for the Tigers (9-3) against the Techsters (7-8) as the senior forward scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed six boards as LSU won for the sixth straight time this year. Behind the strong bench play of Angie Felton and Tavasha Anderson, Louisiana Tech (7-8) built as much as a 12-point first half lead as Kiara Young’s layup with 4:43 to play in the opening half gave the Lady Techsters a 26-14 advantage. “We played a great first half,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “The second half wasn’t as great. We went away from what worked for us. All of these are great lessons for us to learn as we move forward to conference play. You just take your hat off to LSU for the way they fought, scratched and battled the way they did.” Tech came out of the gates strong. After LSU hit the first bucket of the game to take a 2-0 lead, the Lady Techsters scored five straight as Jasmine Bendolph’s three-pointer with 17:49 to play gave Tech a 5-2 advantage. Leading 7-6, Tech used an 11-2 run triggered by seven points from Felton and Anderson to up the advantage to 18-8 with 11:12 to play in the first half. After the Tigers closed it to six points, Tech used a quick 6-0 spurt to push the advantage out to 12. LSU closed the half on a 10-3 run as Tech lead 29-24 at the break. “LSU is a very good basketball team,” Weatherspoon said. “They fought hard to keep it close. They did a great job of getting the ball inside and scoring to get themselves back in it. They did a great job of stopping our momentum. That’s what the game is all about is about momentum and who will stop it. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t have that same fire and intensity when the second half started.” Tech shot 44 percent (12-27) in the opening half while also outrebounding the much bigger LSU team 22-17 and holding the Tigers to only 31 percent (10-31) shooting. The second half mostly belong to LSU as

the Tigers hit 10 of their first 14 shots and quickly turned the five-point halftime deficit into a 4738 lead on Bianca Lutley’s jumper with 11:06 remaining in the game. Tech then held LSU scoreless for almost four minutes. However, the Lady Techsters were only able to shave five points off the deficit in large part to struggles at the free throw line. Tech, which ended the night only 11-of-23 from the stripe, hit only 3-of-7 free throws during that four-minute Tiger drought. Adrienne Webb’s layup at the 7:41 mark of the game broke the drought as LSU pushed the advantage out to double digits at 55-45 with just over four minutes to play. LSU hit 11-of-14 free throws down the stretch to seal the win. Felton led Tech with a game-high 15 points while Anderson and Whitney Jones each added 10 points. Kiara Young scored nine points and led all players with eight rebounds. Jones led LSU with 20 while Adrienne Webb added 12 points. For the game, Tech held its own on the boards as LSU ended the night with a slim 4140 rebounding margin. Tech shot 38 percent (20-53) from the field against the nation’s third best defensive team. LSU entered the contest allowing opponents to average only 46 points a game and shoot only 31 percent from the field.

LA Tech 66, Idaho 54 Jan. 12, 2012 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Louisiana Tech used a balanced offensive attack and forced 23 turnovers to overcome a poor shooting night as the Lady Techsters downed Idaho 66-54 Thursday night in the Western Athletic Conference opener before 4,472 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center. Tech (8-8, 1-0 WAC) hit only 32 percent (2268) of its field goals in the game, but outscored

the Vandals (5-12, 0-1 WAC) 17-4 on points off of turnovers. The Lady Techster bench also outscored the Idaho bench 37-11 in the victory as Tech improved to 14-0 all-time against Idaho. Despite the victory, LA Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon was far from satisfied. “There is a lot to work on,” Weatherspoon said. “It’s more of the mental approach to the game. You can use as many excuses as you want. We had 14 great days of practice and this is the effort and energy we give? This wasn’t what we were looking for. There are a lot of things we have to correct.” Part of LA Tech’s offensive struggles were due to the Vandals blocking a record 15 shots against the Lady Techsters, including seven by Ashley Walters and five by Alyssa Charlston. The 15 blocks broke the previous opponent record of 14 set three times, the last time by Tulsa in 2001-02. “Over and over again, we were asking in the huddle to work the ball, move the ball, make them defend for 30 seconds, go from one option to the next,” Weatherspoon said. “We can’t just take one dribble and throw something up and let them block it. We did that. Frustration set in, and it took us out of our game.” After Idaho took what would be its only lead of the entire game at 6-5 on a layup by Ganeaya Rogers at the 17:38 mark of the first half, Tech scored six quick points as Kiara Young’s jumper with 14:23 upped the Lady Techsters advantage to 11-6. With the score 15-10 just over midway through the opening half, Tech’s bench came on strong scoring every point in a 15-4 run as Kanedria Andrew’s first collegiate three-pointer with 5:00 minutes to play made the score 30-14. Tech would take a 36-23 lead into the halftime locker room as the Lady Techsters reserves scored 24 points and 11 of 12 players scored in the opening half. By the end of the game all 12 Tech players had entered the scoring column.

considerably in the second half. “I thought we really settled down, made some nice adjustments and did a good job against her,” Weatherspoon said. “You could see she is a very good offensive player. I thought we forced her to take some contested shots and even confused her a times. We made it tough on her.” The lead continued to grow and Courtney Hayes’ free throw at the 11:39 mark of the game gave Tech’s its largest advantage at 65-41. Weatherspoon turned to her bench for the final 10 minutes of the game as Tennessee Tech never got closer than 16 points the rest of the way. Molly Heady added 17 points and Jala Harris 11 for the Golden Eagles.

2012-13 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL

“All of my players played their tails off for 14 days (in practice),” Weatherspoon said. “The way they practice and performed, you give them an opportunity to play and experience what it’s like between those lines. That’s important. Everyone is important on this team. To have the opportunity to play today in a crucial game - the first game of conference - it’s big to be able to do that; to gain that experience.” Idaho wouldn’t go away quietly in the second half as the Vandals used a 9-2 run to open the final 20 minutes of action as Rogers layup at the 15:25 mark cut the deficit to 38-32. After missing eight of its first nine shots in the second half, Tech finally found some offensive rhythm as Shantale Bramble-Donaldson’s bucket ignited a 10-0 run. Bramble-Donaldson, who was saddled with three fouls in the first half, scored 10 of her 12 points after the intermission as her two free throws at the 8:21 mark of the game gave the Lady Techsters their biggest lead of the night at 54-35. Idaho would get no closer than 12 the rest of the way. In addition to Bramble-Donaldson’s 12, Angie Felton added 11 points and Tavasha Anderson 10 points while Jasmine Bendolph ended with a game-high nine assists. Charlston led Idaho with 13 points and 10 rebounds while Stacey Barr added 11 points.

Utah State 79, LA Tech 62 Jan. 14, 2012 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Utah State guard Devyn Christensen scored 20 points and Ashlee Brown and Brooke Jackson added 17 each to lead the Aggies to a 79-62 win over Louisiana Tech in Western Athletic Conference action Saturday night at the Thomas Assembly Center. The Aggies (11-5, 2-0 WAC) shot 57 percent (29-51) from the field for the game and won for only the second time in 14 meetings against the Lady Techsters (8-9, 1-1 WAC). Christensen’s hot start propelled Utah State off to an early lead as the junior scored 14 points in the first seven-plus minutes of the game. Her three-pointer on the Aggies opening possession started the run and her layup with 12:32 to play in the first half gave Utah State a 19-12 advantage. Tech, which never led in the contest, found itself trailing by double figures at 28-17 on a Franny Vaaula layup with 8:37 to play. The lead remained double figures for the rest of the half as Utah State pushed it out to as many as 18 at 41-23 before Tech freshman Whitney Frazier hit a pair of free throws to close the gap to 41-25 at the break. Utah State connected on 16-of-27 field goals in the opening half while LA Tech made only 10-of-36. After the Aggies pushed the advantage out to 20 at 52-32 on a pair of Jenna Johnson free throws with 16:17 to play, Tech guard Whitney Jones hit back-to-back three-pointers to trigger a 10-2 run as the Lady Techsters closed the gap to 54-42 with just over 12 minutes to play. However, every time Tech began to make a run, Utah State answered. The Aggies hit 13-

98

of-24 from the field in the second half while the Lady Techsters upped their shooting percentage by connecting on 13-of-31. The two teams entered the game ranked first and second in the WAC in three-point field goal percentage. Utah State hit 8-of-13 while Tech connected on only 3-of-17. The Lady Techsters committed only 11 turnovers in the game while forcing 16 but it wasn’t enough to offset the shooting difference. Frazier led Tech with 14 points and eight rebounds while Jones added 13 points and Brittany Hardy scored 10.

Hawaii 61, LA Tech 46 Jan. 19, 2012 Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, Hawaii Kamilah Jackson scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead Hawaii to a 61-46 win over Louisiana Tech Thursday night at the Stan Sheriff Center in Western Athletic Conference action. With the loss, Tech dropped to 8-10 overall and 1-2 in WAC play while Hawaii improved to 6-11, 1-1 in league action. For the third straight conference game, Louisiana Tech couldn’t find any type of rhythm offensively all night long as the Lady Techsters hit only 26 percent (19-72) of their field goals, including only 18 percent (8-36) in the opening half. Hawaii took advantage of the Lady Techsters cold night building an early double digit lead. After Jasmine Bendolph hit a three-pointer to give Tech its only lead of the night at 3-2, Hawaii used a 12-0 run to take a 14-3 lead midway through the first half. Tech hit only 1 of its first 16 shots. The Lady Techsters fought back, using a 10-2 run to cut the UH advantage to 16-13. However, the Rainbow Wahine wouldn’t allow Tech any closer as they took a 26-17 lead into the halftime locker room. After UH came out and pushed the advantage out to 30-17 early in the second half, the Lady Techsters finally found some momentum as Shantale Bramble-Donaldson helped spearhead a run that saw Tech pull to within 41-37 with just under eight minutes to play. The Lady Techsters then had four straight opportunities to cut farther into the deficit but came up empty on each one as Hawaii pushed the lead back out to 51-39. Tech made one final push as an Angie Felton three-pointer and a Whitney Frazier layup trimmed the lead down to 51-46 with less than two minutes to play. Hawaii finished the game by scoring the final 10 points as the Rainbow Wahine snapped a six-game losing streak to Tech. Bramble-Donaldson led Tech with 15 points and nine rebounds.

LA Tech 70, San Jose State 64 Jan. 21, 2012 The Events Center in San Jose, Calif. Louisiana Tech senior Shantale BrambleDonaldson posted a career night to lead the

Lady Techsters to a 70-64 win over San Jose State in Western Athletic Conference action Saturday night before 1,447 fans at the Events Center. Bramble-Donaldson scored a career-high 20 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds in 36 minutes of action and Whitney Jones chipped in with 16 points as LA Tech (910, 2-2 WAC) snapped the Spartans (7-11, 2-1 WAC) four-game winning streak. “Shantale did exactly what we asked of her tonight in the painted area,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “Brittany Johnson has a lot of (moves inside). We wanted Shantale to make sure that every time the ball went in the paint to (Johnson) that she made her go through her, over her to score; then turn around, box out and get the rebound. She is loaded with talent. Tonight she really showed what she is all about. She had a great night of putting forth the effort. She had the mentality she was going to get it done on both ends of the floor.” Two nights after scoring a season-low 46 points and shooting a season-low 26 percent from the field in a loss at Hawaii, the Lady Techsters responded using a 15-0 run early in the first half to build a lead they would never relinquish. After San Jose State scored the first seven points of the game to take a 7-0 lead, the Lady Techsters answered as Jones and Jasmine Bendolph hit back-to-back three-pointers to ignite a 15-0 run which was capped by a Whitney Frazier layup at the 14:53 mark of the opening stanza. Tech hit 6-of-8 field goal attempts during the run. “I really believe confidence plays such a large part in this game,” Weatherspoon said. “You have to step between the four lines and be confident. We didn’t have a very good shooting night against Hawaii although we had every open shot possible. We just didn’t knock them down. We shot well in practice yesterday. It was a positive practice. “We told the players to trust in themselves and keep a positive mentality. They shot the ball well yesterday and built confidence and came out tonight and brought that to the floor. If you don’t believe that what you do in practice translates to the game, you better believe it. That’s what I saw tonight.” Tech maintained a four to seven point lead the majority of the first half until Myesha Broaden’s layup at the 6:30 mark closed the gap to 28-26. Angie Felton answered with a threepointer and Courtney Hayes followed with a layup with 5:15 to play in the stanza as Tech’s advantage increased to 33-26. However, the Lady Techsters wouldn’t make a field goal the rest of the half. Despite missing its final seven shot attempts of the half, Tech held a 37-33 halftime lead as the Lady Techsters limited San Jose State to only 32 percent (14-43) shooting. Jones led Tech with 10 points in the first half while Felton added eight and BrambleDonaldson six. Johnson led the Spartans with 11 first half points. Tech came out even stronger in the second half, outscoring the Spartans 13-1 to start the stanza as Kiara Young’s layup with 14:31 to play in the game upped the Lady Techsters ad-


LA Tech 69, NMSU 42 Jan. 28, 2012 Pan American Center in Las Cruces, N.M. Louisiana Tech used a pair of 15-0 second half runs to blow open a tight game as the Lady Techsters defeated New Mexico State 69-42 in Western Athletic Conference action Saturday before 1,109 fans at the Pan American Center. Leading 22-19 at the half, Tech (10-10, 3-2 WAC) shot 52 percent (18-35) from the field in the second half as the Lady Techsters outscored the Aggies (4-16, 1-4 WAC) 47-23 after intermission. Senior guards Kiara Young and Whitney Jones provided the spark as the duo each scored 15 points, combining to hit 11-of-18 field goals, 3-of-6 three-pointers and all five free throws while also pulling down 10 rebounds. Young, who entered the game having hit only one three-pointer all season, connected on a pair of long-range bombs in the first two minutes of the second half. After a Tabytha Wampler layup with 17:09 to play cut the Tech advantage to 32-25, the Lady Techsters held the Aggies scoreless for more than six minutes. Tavasha Anderson’s layup with 11:20 to play capped the first 15-0 run of the second half as Tech led 49-25. A Kelsie Rozendaal free throw for the Aggies at the 10:53 mark snapped the run. NMSU then used a modest 8-0 run of its own to cut the deficit to 49-33 with 7:53 to play before LA Tech answered again, scoring 15 straight points over the next three-plus minutes

to push the advantage to 31. Head coach Teresa Weatherspoon emptied her bench with four minutes to play as the Lady Techsters won for the eighth straight time in the series and improved to 15-2 all-time against the Aggies. The opening 20 minutes was an offensive struggle for both teams as Tech shot only 33 percent (9-27) from the field while NMSU shot only 29 percent (6-21). In a half that saw five ties and seven lead changes, NMSU’s biggest lead came at 10-8 while Tech’s biggest first half advantage was 2216. However, Wampler hit a three-pointer with 33 seconds to play in the first stanza as Tech led 22-19 at the break. While Tech found its offensive rhythm in the second half, New Mexico State couldn’t overcome the Lady Techsters defensive pressure as the Aggies turned the basketball over 25 times. Tech outscored the Aggies 33-6 on points off of turnovers. For the game, Tech shot 44 percent (2762) from the field, 7-of-19 from the three-point line and 8-of-10 from the free throw line. NMSU shot only 29 percent (12-42) from the field for the contest, hitting 3-of-11 from the three-point line and 15-of-23 from the free throw line. Tech recorded 17 assists and only 12 turnovers while the Aggies outrebounded Tech 3734. Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added eight points and nine rebounds while Jasmine Bendolph and Angie Felton each added seven points. Wampler led NMSU with 14 points and nine rebounds.

LA Tech 77, Nevada 63 Feb. 2, 2012 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Louisiana Tech Senior guard Jasmine Bendolph has always said she loves playing for one of the greatest point guards in the history of women’s basketball in current Lady Techster head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. On Thursday night in Tech’s 77-63 win over Nevada, Bendolph tried everything in her power to give her best impression of T-Spoon ... and pretty much succeeded. The Mobile, Alabama native recorded her third career double double with 12 points and a career-high 15 assists as the Lady Techsters shot 53 percent (31-58) for the game in the 14-point victory over the Wolf Pack (5-16, 1-5 WAC). Bendolph’s 15 assists were the sixth most in Tech history and the most by a LA Tech player in more than 24 years. The last Lady Techster to accomplish the feat was none other than Weatherspoon, who tallied 15 dimes in a win over Oklahoma State in 1987-88. “She makes the game so easy,” said Weatherspoon, who saw her team record 29 assists on 31 field goals. “Her vision is so good. She can see behind her. She knows what is about to happen before it happens. She makes the game so much easier for everyone else. To see her perform with so much energy and life is fun. That’s her job. It’s unselfish basketball. You

get joy from passing the basketball. Her teammates were finishing for her. I am proud of her.” Bendolph got Tech (11-10, 4-2 WAC) started early as she recorded assists on the first four field goals and eight of the first nine as LA Tech built a 20-12 lead with 12:50 to play in the first half. Shantale Bramble-Donaldson was the main recipient in the first half of Bendolph’s distribution as the senior forward scored 14 of her 16 points in the opening 20 minutes. Tech built its biggest advantage of the first half at 36-18 on a Kanedria Andrews layup off a Jelena Vucinic assist with 5:37 to play. “We wanted to makes sure we shared the basketball,” Weatherspoon said. “We have been working on those things. We are starting to see people when they are open. We were turning the corner and finding people open. We were drawing the defense and finding open shots. We were knocking down those shots.” After Nevada cut the Tech advantage to 4029 with less than two minutes to play in the half, Bendolph ignited an 8-2 run to close the half with a three-pointer and freshman Whitney Frazier capped it with an offensive rebound and putback at the buzzer as the Lady Techsters led 48-31. Bendolph then opened the second half with a three-pointer to give Tech what would be its biggest lead of the night at 51-31 before the Wolf Pack used a 10-1 run over the next four minutes to cut the deficit to 52-41 with 14:19 to play. The lead was pushed back out to 19 at 6647 thanks to offensive contributions by Tavasha Anderson and Frazier. Nevada made one final push and cut the Techster advantage to 71-61 with under two minutes to play before Bendolph hit a 15-foot jumper and then recorded her 15th and final assist of the night on a fast break layup by Bramble-Donaldson with less than a minute to play. Anderson tied her career-high with 17 points while Frazier recorded her first career double double with 14 points and a career-high 11 boards. Chanelle Brennan led Nevada with 17 points and eight rebounds. Tech held the Wolf Pack’s leading scorer in Kate Kevorken to only four points.

vantage to 50-34 - its biggest of the game. The Spartans, who entered the game having won six of their last eight games and off to their best WAC start in more than six years, wouldn’t hang up their sneakers easily though as a 13-2 run during the next five minutes cut the deficit down to five as a pair of Johnson free throws made the score 52-47. A conventional three-point play by Bramble-Donaldson and a pair of three-pointers by Jones over the next four minutes helped the Lady Techsters extend the advantage out to double figures at 64-53 with 5:18 to play in the game. Brea Matthews scored five straight for SJSU and Sara Plavljanin’s layup with 36 seconds to play brought the Spartans to within 68-64. However, despite hitting only 2-of-6 free throws in the final minute of play, Tech held on for the win. In addition to Bramble-Donaldon and Jones’ big nights, Bendolph added nine points and five assists while Frazier chipped in with eight points and a career-high tying eight rebounds. Young added five points and nine boards. For the game, Tech shot 42 percent (27-65) from the field and 9-of-26 from the three-point line while SJSU hit only 34 percent (24-71) from the field. The Spartans did connect on 13-of-24 from the free throw line compared to only 7-of12 for the Lady Techsters. Johnson led San Jose State with 18 points and 10 rebounds but hit only 7-of-24 field goal attempts while Ta’Rea Cunnigan added 17 points and Plavljanin scored 14 points.

Fresno State 61, LA Tech 59 Feb. 4, 2012 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Angie Felton’s running 30-footer at the buzzer bounced off the rim as Fresno State solidified its spots atop the Western Athletic Conference standings with a 61-59 win over Louisiana Tech before 7,034 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Saturday night. With Tech trailing by two, Fresno State forward Rosie Moult missed the front end of a one-and-one with just under six seconds remaining. Tech’s Whitney Frazier pulled down the rebound, found point guard Jasmine Bendolph who found Felton running up the middle of the floor. Felton got a good look but just misfired as Fresno State survived a furious LA Tech rally. It’s the sixth straight game in the rivalry which will

end after this year when Fresno State moves to the Mountain West Conference that has been decided in overtime or by two points. With the victory, the Bulldogs improved to 18-4, 7-0 in WAC play, while LA Tech fell to 11-11, 4-3 in league action. Fresno State entered the game ranked second in the nation in three-pointers made per game at 9.8, but Louisiana Tech put pressure on the perimeter and held the Bulldogs to 0-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc. However, Fresno State made Tech pay on dribble penetration as the Bulldogs scored 52 points in the paint and the other nine at the free throw line. After a conventional three-point play by Shantale Bramble-Donaldson gave Tech its only lead of the game a 3-2 early in the contest, Fresno State used a 12-0 run to take a 14-3 advantage. A tip-in by Felton stopped the run but the Bulldogs would push the lead out to 20-7 its biggest of the game - on a Ki-Ki Moore layup with 9:53 to play in the first half. Back-to-back three-pointers by Whitney Jones and Felton trimmed the lead to 20-13 and Tech would eventually cut the deficit to 25-19 on a layup by Frazier with under five minutes to play in the half. However, Fresno State closed the half with a 6-2 run to lead 31-21 at the break. Tech shot only 29 percent (9-31) for the half while Fresno State hit 46 percent (13-28). The Lady Techsters came out in the second half and executed much better offensively, eventually cutting the double digit deficit down to 41-36 on a layup by Felton with 14:17 to play. Tech trailed 47-42 when freshman guard Kanedria Andrews provided a huge spark off the bench, scoring seven straight points - including a pair of three-pointers - as Tech tied the game at 49-49 with 7:35 to play. Fresno State answered, using a 12-4 run to take a 61-53 lead with 3:02 to play before Felton sparked a run of six straight points by LA Tech to trim the lead to 61-59. After a defensive stop by the Techsters, Tech called a timeout with 10 seconds to play to draw up the final play. However, out of the timeout, Frazier and Whitney Jones collided while trying to run the offensive set which forced a turnover by Jasmine Bendolph. Tech committed the foul on Moult setting up the final six seconds. For the game, Tech shot 40 percent (22-

55), 5-of-15 from the three-point line and 10-of11 from the free throw line while Fresno State shot 44 percent (26-59), 0-of-8 from the threepoint line and 9-of-13 from the free throw line. Tech outrebounded the Bulldogs 36-34. Bramble-Donaldson and Felton led Tech with 13 points while Frazier added 12 points. Moore led the Bulldogs with 20 points while Madison Parish added 15.

LA Tech 82, Utah State 76 Feb. 9, 2012 Dee Glenn Smith Spectrum in Logan, Utah Louisiana Tech freshman forward Whitney Frazier has shown flashes of brilliance during the first 22 games of her collegiate career. On Thursday evening at the Dee Glenn Smith Spectrum, Frazier showed 20 straight minutes of it as she scored a career-high 25 points - all coming in the second half - to lead the Lady Techsters to a come-from-behind 8276 win over Utah State before 948 fans. The El Dorado, Arkansas native saved her best for last as she scored 14 points during the final six minutes, including every point in an 8-2 run that saw LA Tech take the lead in the final 60 seconds of play. With Tech trailing 72-66 after a Brooke Jackson layup with 3:34 to play, senior guard Angie Felton drained a three-pointer that started a game-ending 16-4 run. Following Felton’s threepointer, Frazier scored eight straight points including a 12-foot jumper in the lane with only 46 seconds remaining to put Tech up 75-74. After a Utah State timeout, Frazier stepped in front of the inbounds pass on the sideline in front of the Aggies bench and went coast to coast for a layup to up the LA Tech advantage to 77-74. Utah State guard Devyn Christensen, who led the Aggies with 22 points, then came up short on a 25-footer and Brittany Hardy pulled down the rebound and was fouled. Hardy sank both free throws and Tech hit 5-of-6 free throws in the final 30 seconds to pull away for the victory which avenged a 79-62 loss to the Aggies in Ruston on Jan. 14. However, the story of the night was Frazier. Entering the game averaging 8.0 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, the 6-foot forward

was held scoreless in an opening half that saw Tech enter the locker room leading 32-29. Tech ended the half on a 9-0 run capped by a Kanedria Andrews three-pointer with 1:01 to play. The second half proved to be a back-andforth affair as the game saw a total of eight ties and 13 lead changes. After going 0-for-2 from the field in the first half, Frazier erupted in the second half connecting on 9-of-11 field goals and 7-of-7 free throws. Frazier scored 11 points in the second half before picking up her fourth personal foul with 11:36 to play in a tie game. Tech coach Teresa Weatherspoon substituted for Frazier who sat along with frontcourt teammate Shantale Bramble-Donaldson, who also had four fouls. Trailing 64-60 with just under seven minutes to play, the duo was inserted back into the game. Less than 30 seconds later, BrambleDonaldson picked up her fifth foul, exiting the game for the night. Seeing her frontcourt teammate go to the bench only inspired Frazier, who scored 14 of the next 17 points for the Lady Techsters who improved to 7-0 all-time in Logan. Frazier added seven rebounds - six offensive - one block and one steal in only 24 minutes of action. Bramble-Donaldson finished with 12 points and nine rebounds while Jasmine Bendolph added 11 points and eight assists and Hardy chipped in with 10 points. Tech won despite allowing Utah State to shoot 52 percent (27-52) from the field, including 64 percent (16-25) in the second half. The Lady Techsters shot 48 percent (30-63) from the field, 9-of-22 from the three-point line and 13-of17 from the free throw line.


In addition to Christensen’s 22 points, Brooke Jackson and Ashlee Brown each added 14 points and Maddy Plunkett 12 points for the Aggies.

Cowan Spectrum in Moscow, Idaho Shantale Bramble-Donaldson scored a career-high 25 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Louisiana Tech to a 61-57 win over Idaho Saturday night at Cowan Spectrum. Tech (13-11, 6-3 WAC) led by 10 points late in the game before the Vandals (8-17, 3-6) used a 9-2 run to cut the deficit to 60-57 with under a minute to play. After Whitney Jones missed two free throws with 13 seconds to play that could have sealed the win, Idaho pushed the basketball and Stacey Barr barely misfired on a 25-footer with three seconds to play. Jones then hit 1-of-2 free throws with 1.5 seconds to play to seal the win. The first half saw the two teams trade the lead throughout the opening 20 minutes as Idaho took a 30-29 advantage into the halftime locker room as the game saw 15 lead changes and three ties. Idaho pushed its lead out to 37-32 early in the second half before Tech used a 22-7 run to take its biggest advantage of the game at 54-44 on a pair of free throws by Bramble-Donaldson with 7:07 remaining. The lead remained at 10 at 58-48 with under five minutes to play before Idaho began their comeback as Barr’s three-pointer with 18 seconds to play capped the run as the lead was trimmed to 60-57. Tech won despite hitting only 7-of-16 free throws and shooting only 36 percent from the field. The Lady Techsters outrebounded Idaho 46-43. Jones added 15 points, five steals and three rebounds for Tech. Keri Arendse scored 14 points to lead Idaho while Alyssa Charleston and Barr added 10 points and 10 rebounds each.

LA Tech 73, San Jose State 68 Feb. 16, 2012 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La.

Tech (14-11, 7-3 WAC) led 29-27 at the half but saw San Jose State come out of the locker room on a 23-8 run as Ta’Rea Cunnigan’s layup with 11:57 to play gave the Spartans a 50-37 advantage. Teresa Weatherspoon called a timeout and her message to her team worked. A Jasmine Bendolph jumper ignited what turned into a 3010 run as a pair of Jones free throws with 57

Hawaii 61, LA Tech 49 Feb. 18, 2012 Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, La. Kamilah Jackson scored 19 points to lead four Hawaii players in double figures as the Rainbow Wahine swept the season series from Louisiana Tech with a 61-49 victory before 3,997 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Saturday night. With the loss, Tech fell to 14-12 overall, 7-4 in WAC play, and saw its three-game winning streak snapped. Hawaii improved to 10-15 and 5-5 in league action and became only the third WAC team to ever sweep a regular season series from the Lady Techsters. Much like the first loss against Hawaii a 61-46 setback on the island on Jan. 19 - the Lady Techsters struggled mightily on the offensive end, shooting only 33 percent (20-61) from the field while being outrebounded 47-33. After leading by as many as nine points in the first half at 21-12 on a three-point play by Tavasha Anderson with 7:12 to play, Tech saw Hawaii use an 11-1 run to take a 23-22 advantage with just under four minutes to play in the half. However, a Whitney Jones jumper and a Courtney Hayes driving layup gave LA Tech a 2624 halftime advantage. Hawaii wasted little time in the second half regaining the momentum as Vicky Tagalicod’s three-pointer 10 seconds into the half started an 20-7 run as the Rainbow Wahine led 44-33 with 10:50 to play in the game. Tech mounted a come-back as Anderson scored four straight points and Whitney Jones hit a three to cap a 7-0 run as the Lady Techsters eventually closed the gap to 48-46 with under four minutes left. Jackson started a 9-1 run with a layup as Hawaii pushed the advantage back out to double digits at 57-47 as Tech fell for only the second time ever on its home floor to UH. Angie Felton led Tech with 11 points and

Jasmine Bendolph added 10 points and four assists. Tech’s starting forward combination of Whitney Frazier and Shantale Bramble-Donaldson struggled to ever find a rhythm as they combined to hit only 1-of-14 from the field. Frazier did record a career-high five steals.

seconds to play gave Tech its biggest lead of the game at 67-60. San Jose State (9-15, 4-5 WAC) wouldn’t go away quietly as two free throws by Sara Plavljanin with 18 seconds remaining cut the deficit to 70-68. After Angie Felton hit 1-of-2 free throws, Plavljanin misfired on a jumper and Jones pulled down the defensive rebound and was fouled. Her two free throws sealed the win. Jones finished with 21 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks while Frazier added 21 points and seven rebounds. Shantale Bramble-Donaldson added her seventh double double of the year with 11 points and 12 rebounds and Bendolph added eight points, 10 assists and eight rebounds.

With the victory, Tech improves to 15-12 overall and 8-4 in league play while New Mexico State fell to 6-21 overall and 3-9 in WAC action.

Tech shot only 35 percent (9-26) in the first half while NMSU shot only 23 percent (522). Head coach Teresa Weatherspoon benched three of her normal starters for the first half due to violations of team rules but Anderson responded to only her second start of the season by hitting 7-of-10 field goals and 3-of-5 free throws in 27 minutes of action.

fense to keep it in the lead as the Lady Techsters forced 13 first half turnovers that led to 10 points - more than half of the team’s total. The two teams were tied at 4-4 five minutes into the contest when Anderson scored four points during an 8-0 Tech run that gave the Lady Techsters a 12-4 advantage more than midway through the first half. Freshman Courtney Hayes’ jumper at the 4:38 mark of the opening half gave Tech a 17-8 advantage as the Lady Techsters took a 19-12 lead into intermission. Weatherspoon started her normal five in the second half and the energy level immediately rose as Tech quickly pushed the advantage to double figures at 27-13 on a pair of buckets by Kiara Young and a layup by Whitney Jones. Tech led 34-22 with 13:47 to play when a Jasmine Bendolph jumper ignited 17-5 run over the next five minutes as a pair of Angie Felton free throws gave the Lady Techsters their biggest lead of the night at 51-27. New Mexico State fought back, using an 11-1 run to cut the deficit to 52-38 on a threepointer by Erica Sanchez with 6:09 remaining. The Aggies would get as close at 56-46 with 3:12 to play before the Lady Techsters scored six points in a 24 second span on a pair of Bramble-Donaldson layups and a Jones layup. Tech improved to 16-2 all-time against New Mexico State and pushed its winning streak against the Aggies to nine games. For the game, Tech shot 47 percent (27-58) from the field while holding the Aggies to 37 percent (19-52).

Fresno State 65, LA Tech 62 March 1, 2012 Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif. For the seventh straight time, it wasn’t decided until the waning moments. Trailing by three points with 14 seconds to play, LA Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon drew up a play in the huddle during a timeout. Fresno State swarmed Tech senior guard Jasmine Bendolph out of the timeout, forcing the ball out of her hands and back to freshman guard Courtney Hayes. Hayes’ potential game-tying three-pointer with six seconds to play bounced off the front of the rim and Fresno State ran out the final seconds as the Bulldogs defeated the Lady Techsters 65-62 at the Save Mart Center Thursday night.

102

ney Jones, Tech fought back from a 13-point second half deficit to give itself an opportunity to tie the game. Bendolph scored a seasonhigh 20 points and recorded a career-high 11 rebounds while Jones added 19 points and four boards before fouling out with 3:37 to play. A Ki-Ki Moore three-pointer with 6:33 to play in the game gave Fresno State a 59-46 advantage before the Lady Techsters began their comeback. An Angie Felton three-pointer ignited the spurt as Bendolph scored five points in the 16-6 run that ended the game. Defensively, the Lady Techsters were superb against the WAC’s top offensive team, holding Fresno State to only 33 percent (22-67) shooting and only 7-of-34 from beyond the arc. Tech countered with 46 percent (25-55) shooting for the game. However, the difference in the game was turnovers as Tech committed 22 while Fresno State committed only 13. The Bulldogs also pulled down 18 offensive rebounds. The Lady Techsters led for the majority of the first half. After Fresno State jumped out to an early 5-2 advantage, Tech held the Bulldogs without a field goal for seven minutes as the Lady Techsters built a 16-10 advantage on a Jones jumper at the 7:22 mark. That’s when Tech went cold, hitting only 3-of-8 field goals, missing both free throws and committing six turnovers over the rest of the first half as Fresno State took a 26-22 lead into the locker room. The second half was a shootout between Rosie Moult and Moore of Fresno State and Bendolph and Jones of Tech. After holding Moult scoreless in the opening half, she erupted for 17 points in the second half while Moore added 10 of her team-high 18 points. Bendolph and Jones combined to score 23 points, hitting nine of 14 field goals, 2-of-3 three-pointers and 3-of-4 free throws.

Nevada 76, LA Tech 72 March 3, 2012 Lawlor Events Center in Reno, Nevada After fighting its way all the way from a 13-point deficit to take a 70-69 lead with just over a minute to play, Louisiana Tech faltered down the stretch as the Lady Techsters fell 7672 to Nevada Saturday afternoon in the Western Athletic Conference regular season finale for both teams. Sophomore reserve Jelena Vucinic hit a driving layup with 1:25 to play to give the Lady Techsters their first lead since 4-2 in the first half. However, with the shot clock running down on Nevada’s ensuing possession, Wolf Pack senior guard Amanda Johnson hit a shot in the lane to give UN a 71-70 advantage. Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon called a timeout with 46 seconds to play to set up a play which worked perfectly as Jasmine Bendolph found Shantale Bramble-Donaldson alone under the basket. However, BrambleDonaldson missed the layup and Nevada pulled down the rebound. The Lady Techsters were forced to foul down the stretch and Nevada hit only 5-of-12 free throws in the final 40 seconds. However,

on two separate occasions, LA Tech failed to pull down the defensive rebound as the Wolf Pack pulled away for the win. With the loss, Tech finishes the regular season 15-14 and 8-6 in WAC play and will enter the league tournament as the No. 3 seed. Tech’s first round game will be Wednesday at 2 p.m. CT against sixth-seeded Hawaii, a team that swept the Lady Techsters in the season series. Tech’s struggles Saturday started early as Nevada used an 11-0 run in the first five minutes of the game to take a 13-4 advantage. The Wolf Pack pushed the advantage out to as many as 13 at 32-19 on an Arielle Wideman layup with 7:23 to play in the opening stanza. The Lady Techsters closed the gap to 3529 as Bendolph hit a three-pointer and BrambleDonaldson and Tavasha Anderson converted layups. Nevada entered the halftime locker room leading 40-31 after shooting 50 percent (16-32) from the field. After Tech came out of the halftime locker room and scored the first five points to cut the lead to 40-36, the game remained tight. The UN lead remained between one and six points until Tech was finally able to tie the game on a pair of free throws by Bramble-Donaldson with 7:41 to play. Nevada retook the lead until Whitney Jones - who was saddled with foul trouble most of the game - hit a three-pointer with 4:09 to play to knot the score at 66-66. After the Wolf Pack grabbed another three-point advantage at 69-66, Whitney Frazier hit two free throws setting up the final few minutes of play. Frazier led Tech with 17 points while Bendolph added 14 points and Bramble-Donaldson recorded a double double with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Kayla Williams led Nevada with 20 points while Kate Kevorken added 18 points and Chanelle Brennan 15 points. For the game, Tech shot 41 percent (27-66) from the field, including 52 percent (15-29) in the second half and 4-of-10 from the three-point line. Nevada shot 46 percent (29-63) from the field.

LA Tech 63, Hawaii 54 March 8, 2012 Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada Louisiana Tech exorcised its Hawaii Rainbow Wahine demons Wednesday afternoon as the Lady Techsters defeated UH 63-54 in the first quarterfinal game of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference Tournament at the Orleans Arena. Despite struggling to shoot the basketball for the third straight time against Hawaii this year - the Rainbow Wahine swept the regular season series from the Lady Techsters for the first time ever - LA Tech used a solid defensive effort and near-perfect free throw shooting to advance to Friday’s semifinal against the winner of Utah State and Nevada. “My hats off to Hawaii,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “They are a very well-coached basketball team that’s had our number all season long. It was a difficult battle for us to even get going. When you are playing

Jasmine Bendolph and Angie Felton combined for 40 points and Whitney Jones hit two clutch free throws with nine seconds to play to lift Louisiana Tech to a 73-69 win over Utah State in the semifinals of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference Tournament Friday at the Orleans Arena. In one of its top offensive games of the season, the Lady Techsters shot 49 percent (26-53) from the field, 7-of-17 from the threepoint line and 14-of-16 from the free throw line to defeat the Aggies for the second time this season. Tech improved to 14-2 all-time against Utah State. After building a 62-50 lead with just over eight minutes to play, Louisiana Tech had to withstand a furious Utah State rally that saw the Aggies close the deficit to within 71-69 on a three-point play by Brooke Jackson with only 31 seconds to play. On the ensuing inbounds play, Tech turned the ball over as Utah State had two opportunities to tie or take the lead. However, Jackson’s layup was blocked by Felton and Devyn Christensen’s three-pointer was off target. Utah State then fouled Jones with nine seconds to play as the West Monroe native calmly sank a pair of free throws to seal the win. Bendolph and Felton kept the Aggies at arm’s length all day. Bendolph scored a seasonhigh 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting while also adding five rebounds and four assists in 40 minutes of action. Felton added a career-high 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting with six rebounds, a career-high five steals and two blocks. “Angie Felton came out and was shot ready,” said Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon. “We just kept telling Angie to shoot it. We know what she can do.” As critical as Tech’s offensive execution was to the victory, the job the Lady Techsters did against Utah State’s guard combination of Devyn Christensen and Brooke Jackson was just as important. Tech held the duo to only 7-of-29 from the field and only 3-of-14 from the three-point line. Utah State, which entered the game as the WAC’s top three-point shooting team percentage wise at 39 percent, hit three of the first five three-pointers they attempted in the opening five minutes. The Aggies wouldn’t connect on one the rest of the game. While Christensen and Jackson struggled offensively, Utah State forward Ashlee Brown

Fresno State hit a Western Athletic Conference Tournament record 15 three-pointers in defeating Louisiana Tech 89-61 in the championship game at the Orleans Arena Saturday afternoon. With the victory, Fresno State (28-5) earns the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament while Louisiana Tech (17-15) will wait to see if it receives a postseason invitation. The game saw seven ties and three lead changes in the opening nine minutes of play as freshman Courtney Hayes layup with 11:46 remaining in the first half gave the Lady Techsters an 18-16 advantage. It was the last time the Tech saw the lead. Fresno State guard Madison Parrish hit a three-pointer 12 seconds later to ignite a 17-2 run which included five three-pointers during the four-minute span. Rosie Moult scored 11 straight points during the run. Whitney Jones and Shantale BrambleDonaldson hit back-to-back layups to cut the deficit to 33-24, but Fresno State answered with 10 straight points, including two more three-pointers, to push the advantage out to 43-24 with 3:31 to play in the half. Fresno State led 52-34 at the break. The Bulldogs shot 57 percent (20-35) from the field in the opening half, including 10-of-20 from behind the arc. Tech shot 46 percent (1533) from the field in the first half but only 1-of-7 from the three-point line. Any chance of a second-half rally by Tech was doused early as Fresno State pushed the advantage to 65-38 at the first media timeout thanks to three more trifectas. Whitney Frazier, who led Tech with a game-high 18 points, scored six points during an 8-2 run as Tech cut the deficit down to 67-46 with 12:57 to play. It was as close as LA Tech would get as Fresno State eventually pushed the lead out to 83-50 with 7:39 to play in the game. For the game, the Bulldogs hit 15-of-40 three-pointers and shot 49 percent (32-65) from the field while LA Tech hit 39 percent (24-61) from the field. The Lady Techsters were only 1-of-13 from the three-point line. Tech senior guard Jasmine Bendolph earned all-tournament team honors.

against a team like this, as hard as they play, it’s tough to get going. You have to find a way to battle through adversity. We were fortunate to get out of here with a win.” Tech (16-14) shot only 32 percent (21-of66) from the field for the game, but hit 17-of-19 free throws over the final 20 minutes of play as it pulled away late for the win. The Lady Techsters also committed a season-low eight turnovers while outscoring UH 19-6 in points off of turnovers. In a game that saw 11 ties and nine lead changes, UH (11-19) used a 13-4 run to grab a 44-42 lead with only 6:16 to play in the game. However, Lady Techster freshman guard Courtney Hayes, playing on the same floor where she led Centennial High School to the Nevada state title less than a year ago, hit a jumper as Tech used a 7-0 run to take a 49-44 advantage. After Nevada cut the deficit to 49-46 with 2:54 to play, the final two minutes became a free throw shooting contest for LA Tech. Despite entering the game as only a 62 percent free throw shooting team, the Lady Techsters connected on 12-of-14 over the final two minutes - including 7-of-8 by senior point guard Jasmine Bendolph to pull out the win. Neither team was ever able to find an offensive rhythm in a first half that saw Tech take a 26-25 lead into the locker room. In the opening 20 minutes, Tech shot only 26 percent (1142) from the field while Hawaii shot only 38 percent (10-26). Hawaii built as much as a five-point lead in the first half at 23-18 with 6:51 to play before Bendolph hit a short jumper that ignited an 8-2 run to end the stanza. Bendolph’s three-pointer with 37 seconds to play in the half gave Tech the one-point lead. The second half saw the Lady Techsters hold UH without a field goal for more than six minutes as a Bendolph jumper with 14:28 to play in the game gave Tech its largest advantage at 38-31. However, Tech went cold for the next eight minutes scoring only four points while Hawaii sophomore Kamilah Jackson scored five points to lead a 13-4 run that saw the Rainbow Wahine take its last lead of the game at 44-42.

Tech shot 42 percent (10-24) from the field in the second half while holding UH to only 26 percent (7-27). Bendolph led Tech with 20 points, six rebounds and four assists while Bramble-Donaldson added 13 points and 11 rebounds. Jackson led Hawaii with 17 points and 16 rebounds while Vicky Tagalicod added 13 points. Tech improved to 21-5 all-time in WAC Tournament games and 53-8 all-time in conference tournament games. The Lady Techsters are 17-1 all-time in quarterfinal contests.

After completing its 50th year of intercollegiate competition, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best programs. 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 years. Since 2000, a total of 43 football teams have been invited to bowl games, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five. The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games three times since 2006. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 29 seasons. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003. In women’s basketball, Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three NCAA postseason tournaments during its history. 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, 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 the 2000-01 season. In 2005, Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. Boise State withdrew prior to the 2011-12 season. The current membership began on July 1, 2012 when the WAC added Denver, Seattle, UT-Arlington, UTSA and Texas State to replace withdrawing members, Fresno State, Hawai‘i and Nevada. Boise State returns in 2013-14 in all sports except football. The WAC has had just six 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), Karl Benson (1994-2012) and current interim commissioner Jeff Hurd (2012-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

JEFF HURD, WAC INTERIM COMMISSIONER Jeff Hurd was named interim commissioner of the WAC on March 9, 2012. He has been associated with the conference for more than half of its existence as he joined the WAC staff in 1985 as the Director of Conference Relations. Prior to taking the reins of the 50-year-old conference, Hurd also served as associate commissioner, then as senior associate commissioner where he oversaw communications, television operations and the basketball tournament. He was also responsible for team sport scheduling and was the administrator for football, men’s basketball and baseball. Hurd is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and began his professional career as the Sports Editor of the Hannibal (Missouri) Courier-Post. He also worked for the Tulsa Tribune, was the Sports Information Director at the University of Tulsa and the Director of Public Relations for the Missouri Valley Conference prior to joining the WAC. A native of Minot, North Dakota, Hurd and his wife, Cheri, reside in Centennial, Colo., and are the parents of four children: Shannon, Michael, Kristen and Kevin.

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 AllStar 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. In 2010-11 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 39th 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.

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.

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.

Led by freshman post player Pam Kelly, Tech recorded a regular season mark of 24-3 (the three losses were by a combined four

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.

However, no one envisioned the dominating performance the Lady Techsters would put on throughout the year, destroying the competition on its way to a perfect 34-0 record and the school’s first AIAW National Championship title.

The 1982-83 season brought with it much change for the Lady Techsters. Gone were three-time Kodak AllAmerican 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 8,000seat 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 (64-58) 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 Final Four. However, for the second season in a row, Tech was knocked off by Southern California in the Final Four as the Lady Techsters ended the year 30-3.

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.

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

Just when it looked like the Lady Techster dynasty might be slowly folding, Leon Barmore brought in one of the nation’s Top 5 recruiting classes. And although Tech lost three of its first eight games - two against nationally ranked Tennessee and Texas Tech - the Lady Techsters slowly found their chemistry and by the end of the regular season looked poised to make a run at the Final Four. After winning the Sun Belt regular season title, Tech received an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament after dropping the SBC Tournament title game to Western Kentucky. Tech’s resurgence surprised many as the Techsters won the first three games of the tournament before losing a 57-52 heart-breaker to No. 1 ranked Vanderbilt in the Midwest Finals. However, the 26-6 record showed Tech was back among the nation’s elite. During the course of the season, Tech also won the 500th game in the program’s history with a 93-72 win over Alabama in Ruston. Barmore also claimed his 300th coaching victory when the Lady Techsters downed Arkansas State 72-66 Feb. 15, 1993, in Ruston.

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. The Lady Techsters would exit the NCAA Tournament after a first round loss at California State-Fullerton, the earliest exit ever.

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

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 with an at-large bid to the NCAA’s. After two wins over Furman and Oklahoma in the first two rounds of the tournament, Tech dropped another one-point loss this time against Virginia in the regional semifinals.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. During the season, the retired Leon Barmore was announced as a member of the 2003 Class for both the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

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. Guards Amber Obaze and Erica Smith-Taylor both earned second team All-WAC honors as well as WAC All-Defensive Team accolades.

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 outof-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 LadyTechsters string of 23 straight NCAATournament 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

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.

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.

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 allWAC while the pair both made the WAC alldefensive 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.

2007-08

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 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

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 seasonchanger 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.

2010-11

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

122

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 threepointer 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.

2011-12

Louisiana Tech got off to a tough start and never truly recovered as the Lady Techsters finished a roller coaster ride of a season at 17-15, dropping the championships game of the 2012 WAC Tournament against Fresno State. Tech lost six of its first eight games of the year with single digit losses to Seton Hall, Alabama and Tulane and wins over eventual NCAA Tournament participant UALR and old rival Old Dominion. The Lady Techsters then started to right the ship, winning five of its next six games including victories over SEC foe Mississippi State and a triple overtime win against Prairie View A&M. Weatherspoon and Co. entered WAC play 7-8. After falling in two of its first three league games, Tech won six of its next seven with the lone loss being a two-point setback against eventual WAC champion Fresno State. The Techsters finished third in the league race and entered the WAC Tournament where it defeated Hawaii in the first round before upsetting No. 2 seed Utah State in the semifinals. LA Tech needed one more win to qualify for its third straight NCAA Tournament but fell 89-61 to the Bulldogs as the season came to an end.

When a program’s won 1,017 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 38 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. Pam Kelly (1978-82) Kodak Year(s): 1980, 1981, 1982 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 198081 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.

41

Angela Turner (1978-1982) Kodak Year(s): 1982 Known affectionately as A.T. by all Lady Techster fans, the sharp-shooting Angela Turner is still considered today as one of the best allaround players in the history of Tech basketball. A key component to Tech’s early success in women’s basketball, Turner helped lead the Lady Techsters to

5

four straight Final Fours and two national 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. Janice Lawrence (1980-1984) Kodak Year(s): 1983, 1984 Many people argue that Janice Lawrence is the greatest player in Louisiana Tech Lady Techster history - an argument that has plenty of factual support. 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

51

in scoring average (17.8), No. 5 in rebounds (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).

career with the Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters. A 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 AllAmerican 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 ball-handling 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 Louisiana-Monroe 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.

11

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

40

124

(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.

43

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 rt ’s Evangel High School, Wilson made the easy decision to sign with the

30


Tamicha Jackson (1996-2000) Kodak Year(s): 2000 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 All-Sun 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-foot7-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.

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.

Final Polls 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.

University President

For over half a century, President Dan Reneau and Louisiana Tech University have shared a reputation for higher education excellence, leadership and performance that is unrivaled anywhere in the State of Louisiana. With a passion for service and a commitment to his University and its constituents, Dr. Reneau has become one of the most respected and admired educational leaders in the history of Louisiana higher education. Dr. Reneau’s many accomplishments at Louisiana Tech began with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 1963. He also earned a master’s degree from Tech in chemical engineering in 1964, followed by a doctorate from Clemson University in 1966. Dr. Reneau returned to Louisiana Tech in 1967 as an assistant professor of chemical engineering and quickly distinguished himself as a scholar and researcher. He has published over 80 technical papers in books and journals, edited five books, and attended over 100 international meetings and conferences. In 1972, Dr. Reneau was responsible for establishing Louisiana Tech’s Biomedical Engineering Department – one of the first of its kind in the United States. The department and its undergraduate curriculum became only the fifth program accredited in the nation. The Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. program was later awarded a Commendation of Excellence by the Louisiana Board of Regents. Dr. Reneau’s continued vision and leadership resulted in his appointment as Louisiana Tech’s Vice President of Academic Affairs in 1980. In this capacity, he served as chief academic officer to some 400 faculty housed in six colleges and three professional schools, offering 160 different degree programs. During his tenure, every major program with an accrediting agency was awarded accreditation. He was also instrumental in establishing Louisiana Tech’s Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Science. On February 20, 1987, the Board of Trustees for State Colleges and Universities selected Dr. Reneau as the 13th President of Louisiana Tech University. While accomplishments have been many during Dr. Reneau’s tenure as President of Louisiana Tech, some of the most notable include the implementation of selective admissions, achievement of Division I-A football status, establishment of the Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM), construction of a new state-of-the-art Biomedical Engineering facility, attainment of the Carnegie Research University/High Research Activity classification, and the establishment of a 50-acre research park between the Tech campus and downtown Ruston called Enterprise Campus. In 1995, Dr. Reneau was awarded the Distinguished Arthur T. Prescott Professorship in Engineering. In 1999, the Clemson Alumni Association, in conjunction with Clemson University, installed Dr. Reneau as an inaugural Alumni Fellow of the University. The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering selected Dr. Reneau as a 2000 AIMBE Fellow. In 2002, he was awarded the Newell Perry Award by the National

Federation of the Blind – the highest honor that is given by the National Federation of the Blind. In recent years, Dr. Reneau has led Louisiana Tech to the University of Louisiana System’s (ULS) highest graduation rate, highest retention rate, highest average freshman ACT score, and fastest time-to-completion rate for first-time baccalaureates as well as achieving record graduate enrollment and doctoral graduates. Dr. Reneau has led Louisiana Tech to a Tier One “National University” ranking by U.S. News & World Report, as well as a designation as an SREB Doctoral Four-Year 2 Research University, a Carnegie Foundation Research University with High Research Activity (RU/H) and a “statewide university” as defined by the Louisiana Board of Regents. Louisiana Tech has been ranked in the nation’s top 10 for graduating students with the least amount of debt for three consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report (2010, 2011 and 2012) and was the highest ranked Louisiana public university in mid-career median pay for graduates, according to PayScale. com (2010). Tech was also north Louisiana’s only public university to make the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. As he enters his 26th year as Louisiana Tech President, Dr. Dan Reneau continues to share his vision for moving Louisiana Tech forward and strengthen his commitment to serving the students and alumni of his University. Through Dr. Reneau’s leadership, Louisiana Tech University has transformed itself from an aspiring regional university into one of the state’s premier research institutions. Dr. Reneau is a native of Woodville, Mississippi and is married to the former Linda Digby of Bernice, whom he met as a student at Louisiana Tech. They have two children, John and Dana, who are also both Louisiana Tech alumni. John currently lives in Las Vegas and Dana lives in Baton Rouge with her husband, Jim Bernhard, and their two sons, Michael and Ben.

BRUCE VAN Director of Athletics

DE VELDE

Joining Louisianan Tech University in the spring of 2008, Bruce Van De Velde became director of athletics on March 1, 2010 after serving as deputy director of athletics. During his initial months as director of athletics, Van De Velde led a national search and hired 2011 WAC Coach of the Year Sonny Dykes. Van De Velde also initiated the largest fund raising campaign in athletic department history in the Quest for Excellence, a $20 million initiative to raise private donations to enhance athletic facilities. A veteran administrator Van De Velde has a track record of operating programs with integrity and with the student athlete as the top priority. As director of athletics at three NCAA Division I institutions, those programs have achieved no major rule infractions. This past season Louisiana Tech student athletes achieved their highest graduation success rate in University history. With Louisiana Tech’s invitation to join Conference USA in 2013 Van De Velde and his administrative team have Louisiana Tech poised to reach its highest level of achievement. “This is the dawn of a new era for Louisiana Tech University and a goal we have worked very hard over the past several years to achieve,” said Tech President Dan Reneau. “I want to publically acknowledge the efforts of Bruce Van De Velde and his team, who were instrumental in telling our story and promoting our vision for the future of Louisiana Tech Athletics.” Van De Velde has more than two decades of experience at the Division I level as a senior administrator including the University of Oklahoma, University of Missouri, Kansas State University and Utah State University. Van De Velde also has a thorough understanding of coaches and the needs of student-athletes having served as an educator and coach early in his career. On the forefront of national service to intercollegiate athletics Van De Velde has served on numerous NCAA cabinets and committees including NCAA Football Issues Committee, NCAA Championship and Competition Cabinet and the Division IA Athletic Directors Executive Committee. During his tenure in the Big XII Conference he served on the Television Committee and the Conference Bowl Committee. “It is an honor to be the director of athletics at Louisiana Tech University,” Van De Velde said. “Our vision is to build a program to a level where we can be associated with universities that aspire to academic and athletic excellence at the highest level.” During his tenure Van De Velde has been instrumental in a number of accomplishments that have helped further the advancement of the University’s athletic department, including: * Leadership and strategic direction for Louisiana Tech’s invitation and transition to Conference USA from the Western Athletic Conference. * Developed and implemented the largest fund raising campaign in athletic department history. Quest for Excellence: The Campaign for Tech Athletics is a $20 million campaign to upgrade athletic facilities. * Reorganized annual giving program doubling the number of donors and increasing annual contributions to the program 140 percent; increased total contributions to intercollegiate athletics from $1.6 million in 2008 to $6 million in 2012. * Hired head football coach Sonny Dykes and head men’s basketball coach Michael White. * Upgraded ticket operations improving customer service, marketing by ecommerce and out bound sales capabilities by partnering with Ticketmaster and the Aspire Group and established a new record for football season ticket

sales. * Student-athlete graduate success rate of 71 percent in 2011 was the highest in the history of the university and one of the top graduation rates in the nation. All 16 sports programs were APR penalty free and eight programs achieved their highest APR in school history. In 2010, the Louisiana Tech athletic department was recognized nationally with the PRISM Award for excellence in athletics management under Van De Velde’s leadership. The athletic department was also honored with the Excellence in Management Cup by Texas A&M University for three consecutive years and won the NCAA Pack the House for the Western Athletic Conference five consecutive years for its marketing and promotions efforts for women’s basketball. Tech has also seen plenty of competitive success since Van De Velde’s arrival at Tech as the Bulldog football team captured the 2011 WAC championship and participated in the Poinsettia Bowl against 15th ranked TCU. The Bulldogs also captured its first bowl victory in more than 30 years with the 2008 Independence Bowl win over Northern Illinois. The Lady Techster basketball team won the 2009 and 2011 regular season Western Athletic Conference titles, and the 2010 WAC Tournament title while the women’s indoor and outdoor track and field teams won the 2009, 2010 and 2011 league titles. The Bulldog basketball team under the direction of first-year coach Mike White advanced to the program’s first ever WAC Tournament title game in 2011, defeating defending WAC Tournament champion Utah State and regular season WAC champion Nevada along the way. Numerous individual success stories have also occurred under his leadership including sprinter Antoinette Cobb earning the 2010 Honda Inspiration Award and catcher Clint Ewing becoming a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award for their work both on the field of completion and in the classroom. In 2011, track star Chelsea Hayes earned the WAC’s Joe Kearney Award while shattering numerous school records and qualified for the United States Olympic team in the long jump. Prior to Louisiana Tech Van De Velde who has an extensive background in higher education fund raising served as a development consultant at the University of Missouri during their $100 million campaign and as Director of Athletics at Iowa State University.


MARY KAY

HUNGATE

Deputy Athletics Director/ Senior Woman Administrator Deputy Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator Mary Kay Hungate enters her 28th year as a member of the Louisiana Tech Athletics Department and has proven to be an integral part in the emergence of the University’s programs on the playing fields and in the classroom. Not only does Hungate serve as the sports administrator for men’s and women’s basketball, women’s soccer, softball, women’s tennis, women’s bowling and women’s volleyball, but she is also in charge of NCAA compliance for all of the university’s 16 NCAA sanctioned programs. As one of the top two ranking administrators in the Tech Athletics Department, Hungate is part of a senior staff that was instrumental in helping the University earn an invitation to join Conference USA starting July 1, 2013. In addition, Hungate and the current senior staff has also garnered a number of national awards, including the 2010 Turnkey PRISM Award which recognizes colleges for managerial excellence across four areas: marketing/branding; fan development; community relations; and customer/client service. The Tech athletics department has also finished in the Top 10 three of the past four years in the Excellence in Management Cup, which recognizes the most efficient athletic departments in the nation. Hungate serves a vital role in the hiring of coaches. Hungate proved instrumental in the decision by former Tech Kodak All-American and WNBA All-Star Teresa Weatherspoon - who played for Hungate in the late-80s - to return to Louisiana Tech in June of 2008. Weatherspoon was promoted to head coach in February of 2009 where she has led the program to a trifecta of Western Athletic Conference titles and two straight NCAA Tournament appearances. She also served as the point person in the hiring process of head women’s soccer coach Kevin Sherry. Sherry led the Lady Techster soccer team to four straight winning seasons (the first ones in program history), the program’s first ever WAC victories and its first appearance in the WAC Tournament in 2010. Another of Hungate’s responsibilities includes overseeing the academic side of the Tech athletics department, another area which has improved drastically as proven by the fact LA Tech’s graduation rate continues to be one of the highest in the state (Federal Graduation Report). This past year Tech student-athletes boasted an all-time high 72 percent four-year graduation success rate while a total of 92 studentathletes earned Academic All-WAC accolades. Tech football was recognized nationally with the Academic Achievement Award presented by the American Football Coaches Association while the Bulldog golf team earned an NCAA Public Recognition Award. For the fourth consecutive year, Louisiana Tech saw impressive improvements in the majority of its Academic Progress Rates (APR) as all 16 of its NCAA sanctioned programs are penalty free for the second consecutive year. Louisiana Tech saw nine of its programs record their highest multi-year APR scores ever while five registered their highest single year APR score ever. Four of the programs also earned a perfect 1,000 score on the single year rate. Hungate also plays an important role in LA Tech’s NCAA Certification process. As a member of the Steering Committee and the liaison between the athletic department and the University’s Self Study Committees, she provides the information needed for the committees to write their reports. In 2006, LA Tech completed its second NCAA Certification cycle and once again was certified without conditions. Hungate joined the Louisiana Tech staff in 1985 as an assistant women’s basketball coach and remained in that role for five years. During that time, the Lady Techsters participated in four Final Fours and won the NCAA National Championship in 1988. In 1990, Hungate made a move out of coaching and became as-

2012-13 LADY TECHSTER BASKETBALL

Van De Velde’s tenure at Iowa State University included an unprecedented five bowl appearances in six years and the highest national AP football poll ranking (9th) in school history. Iowa State’s 2001 average football attendance of 45,172 reached its highest watermark in 18 years. In 2002 and 2003, total football attendance exceeded 300,000; the most at ISU in two decades. The emergence of the Cyclone football program on a national stage with Van De Velde at the department helm was affirmed in 2002 when Iowa State was chosen to play No. 1 Florida State University in the Eddie Robinson Classic. During Van De Velde’s tenure at Iowa State, the men’s and women’s basketball teams won Big XII conference championships and participated in the 2001, 2002 and 2005 NCAA basketball tournaments. Van De Velde, with a track record for generating revenue, increased the total an
