Local Media Set for Game at TAC

Oct. 15, 2008

RUSTON -- The media is putting the shoe on the other foot ... or maybe the Chuck Taylor's on both feet.

Local media celebrities from Ruston, Monroe and Shreveport will participate in a media celebrity basketball game as part of the events surrounding Louisiana Tech's "Bounce is Back Basketball Bonanza" Oct. 22 at the Thomas Assembly Center.

The "Bounce is Back Basketball Bonanza" has been organized for all Louisiana Tech fans to come out and meet the players and coaches for both the Bulldog and Lady Techster basketball teams.

The media celebrity basketball game will start the evening off at 6:30 p.m. as television, newspaper and radio personalities from around the area lace 'em up and tip it off for two 10-minute halves of basketball on Karl Malone Court.

Following the media game, the Tech Band and cheerleaders will perform leading up to a spotlight introduction of both the Bulldog and Lady Techster players.

The evening will also consist of a dunk contest, a two-ball contest, 10-minute intra-squad scrimmages by both the Bulldogs and the Lady Techsters and an autograph session with both teams.

All Tech fans are invited to attend and admission is free. Free snacks and beverages will be provided by Aramark.
