Open Letter from Bulldog Basketball Head Coach Michael White



Feb. 24, 2014

Dear Louisiana Tech fans,

You have definitely made the Thomas Assembly Center one of the best home courts in the country during the past three years of #DunkinDogs Basketball.

Together, the fans and our team have recorded back-to-back 20-win seasons in large part because of your support as well as the support of our administration.

We have won 30 of the last 31 games in the TAC in large part because you have given us the motivation and energy to leave everything out on the court for 40 minutes.

Operation Sellout is the perfect example. We had more than 7,000 screaming fans that made the place absolutely electric and provided that sixth man atmosphere from the opening tipoff to the final buzzer in the win over Marshall.

Then you helped "white out" the Thomas Assembly Center against Tulsa in the comeback win over the Golden Hurricane.

With only one more home game remaining this season, we need the entire community and our Blue Crew student section to electrify the TAC one more time when Middle Tennessee comes to Ruston this coming Thursday. We need YOU to help us against a very talented Blue Raiders program while sending our four seniors out in a way they deserve.

Kenyon McNeail, Cordarius Johnson, Chris Anderson and Jaron Johnson have played huge roles in elevating this program back to national notoriety during their time in a Bulldog uniform.

These terrific upperclassman, along with the rest of our talented student-athletes, helped bring a WAC championship to Ruston last year, and they are fighting for a C-USA championship this year. Thursday night's game versus Middle Tennessee is critical in accomplishing this goal.



Your Bulldogs are one-game back of the league-leading Blue Raiders, so I am asking every Louisiana Tech fan to grab a family member or friend and Pack the TAC for the 6:30 p.m. tipoff.

Make your plans now! Wear blue. Get loud and be proud for your #DunkinDogs. Show the entire country and Conference USA who has the best basketball fans around!

Go Dogs!
