LA Tech Sets Dates for Legends Days for Basketball

Nov. 13, 2015

RUSTON – Louisiana Tech fans can look forward to a pair of Legends Days during the upcoming basketball season as both the Bulldogs and the Lady Techsters will welcome back players, coaches and support staff members from the past.

The Bulldogs Legends Day is set for Sunday, Jan. 31 in a game against UTEP while the Lady Techsters Legends Day is set for Saturday, Feb. 20, also in a game against UTEP.

As part of these Legends Days, Louisiana Tech Athletics is inviting all former basketball players, coaches and support staff members back to Ruston. Exact details surrounding these games will be released at a later date, but everyone is encouraged to put these dates on your calendars.

For the Bulldogs Legends Day, members of the 1990-91 team will be honored at halftime. This team went 21-10 and won both the American South Conference regular season and tournament titles while advancing to the NCAA Tournament, the last Bulldog team to accomplish this feat. This team was led by NBA champion P.J. Brown, who will be enshrined into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame this summer.

For the Lady Techsters Legends Day, members of the 1974-75 team – the very first in program history – will be recognized and honored at halftime. This team recorded a 13-9 record in its inaugural season, including two in the state AIAW Tournament at the end of the year. It was led by head coach Sonja Hogg as well as current Lady Techster associate head coach Mickie DeMoss, who was the starting point guard.

Any former players, coaches or support staff members for Bulldog and Lady Techster basketball can contact Solomon Randel at 318-257-5151 or Emily Embree at 318-257-5152.
