Athletics


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, LATechSports.com wanted to take a look back on some of the top moments from the past dozen years.  

Each day during the month of June, LATechSports.com 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).  

Starting on July 1, LATechSports.com will highlight each one of the 16 member schools for C-USA.
