RUSTON - The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and Lady Techsters will be competing in the 2013 Western Athletic Conference basketball tournament March 12-16 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Both teams will be looking to capture the tournament title and earn the league's automatic berth in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
Louisiana Tech fans can purchase tickets for the tournament through the Tech Ticket Office by calling 318-257-3631 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Ticket books are $165 and include all sessions for both the men's and women's games.
All 10 schools will participate in the 2013 WAC Tournament. Each of the first four days of the tournament will consist of four games each while Saturday will include the two championship games.
This marks Louisiana Tech's final year as a member of the WAC before joining Conference USA and both the Bulldogs and Lady Techsters have great opportunities to capture the tournament titles and advance to postseason play. Last season both teams advanced to the championship game of the event before falling one game short for the quest for the NCAA Tournament.
Mike White and the Bulldogs will be looking for the program's first ever WAC Tournament title while Teresa Weatherspoon and the Lady Techsters will be looking for the program's sixth tournament title.
