Inside Tech Basketball Postseason Special Set for Monday Night

March 15, 2015

RUSTON - A special postseason edition of the Bank of Ruston's Inside Tech Basketball radio show is set for Monday night at 6 p.m. at Scott's Catfish on Hwy 33 in Ruston.

The one-hour radio show will feature the Voice of the Bulldogs Dave Nitz and LA Tech men's basketball head coach Michael White and will air live on the LA Tech Sports Network on ESPN 97.7 FM.

The show will also feature other guests as the Bulldogs earned a No. 3 seed in the National Invitation Tournament and will host No. 6 Central Michigan on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. inside the Thomas Assembly Center.

The game will showcase both the regular season Conference USA champion Bulldogs (25-8) and the regular season Mid-American Conference West Division champion Chippewas (23-8).

Tech will bring a 29-game home winning streak into the contest, the fourth longest current streak in the country. Seniors Speedy Smith, Raheem Appleby and Michale Kyser will be looking for their 100th career win in a Bulldog uniform.

This will be only the second meeting ever between the two teams. The Bulldogs defeated Central Michigan 104-85 on Jan. 4, 1992 in Ruston.

It also marks the third straight year LA Tech has participated in the NIT as the Bulldogs advanced to the quarterfinals last season with wins over Iona and Georgia. Tech is 10-8 all-time in eight NIT appearances, including a 4-0 record in Ruston.
