Techsters Earn Program’s 1000th Victory

Louisiana Tech’s women’s basketball program has always been among the nation’s elite since its inception in 1974. During its affiliation in the WAC, the program continued to see plenty of success including capturing milestone victory No. 1000 when the Lady Techsters defeated Nevada 66-59 in the semifinals of the 2010 WAC Tournament in Las Vegas. Tech joined Tennessee as the only two women’s basketball programs to claim 1000 wins. The win was one of 24 on a season that saw Louisiana Tech earn its 27th trip to the Big Dance.
