As the sun sets on Louisiana Tech's 12-year membership in the Western Athletic Conference and the University prepares to move to Conference USA on July 1, wanted to take a look back on some of the top moments from the past dozen years.  

Each day during the month of June, will feature a top game, player, or significant event that has occurred since the University joined the WAC on July 1, 2001 (these milestones will be done in random order).
