RUSTON - The Louisiana Tech men's basketball game versus Longwood this Saturday, Jan. 4, inside the Thomas Assembly Center will now tip off at 4 p.m.

The game time change was made to accommodate fans wanting to attend LA Tech's last nonconference game of the season and make it home in time to watch New Orleans opening round playoff game.

The contest was originally scheduled for 6 p.m. which would have carried over into the start of the nationally-televised Saints-Eagles wild card game.
