RUSTON - The second round NIT matchup between No. 3 seed Louisiana Tech and No. 2 seed Texas A&M has officially been set for Monday, March 23 with tipoff at 6 p.m. on ESPN.

LA Tech was able to reach this point in the tournament by defeating Central Michigan, 89-79, on Tuesday night in Ruston. The victory was No. 100 for head coach Michael White who became just the ninth active head coach to reach 100 victories in his first four years.

Monday's game will mark the second straight season the Bulldogs face an SEC opponent on the road in the NIT. Last year, the `Dogs were able to pull out a victory at Georgia to reach the quarterfinals.
