@LATechWBB Hosts LSU-Alexandria Sunday at 2 p.m.
Nov. 11, 2017
RUSTON – Following its season opening win over Grambling State Friday, Louisiana Tech head coach Brooke Stoehr said film session would provide plenty of teaching points for her young basketball team.
Tech defeated the Lady Tigers 64-53 despite committing 24 turnovers in a foul-infested game that also saw a combined 48 fouls committed by the two teams.
Stoehr and Co. will have a chance to show what they learned during the past 48 hours from game one when the Lady Techsters host LSU-Alexandria Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Thomas Assembly Center.
“Just be simple,” said Stoehr, following the win. “Don’t beat yourself. We shot very well, 62 percent in the fourth quarter, because we took care of the ball, got it reversed and got layups. It was really that simple if we would have taken care of the basketball. Game one is no more important or significant than game 25. That’s what I stress to them. We have to continually get better every day. We aren’t going to change our focus.”
Tech’s ability to dominate inside during the second half allowed the Techsters to overcome its mistakes. Forwards Alexus Malone (17 points, 9 rebounds) and Reauna Cleaver (11 points, 12 rebounds) combined for 28 points and 21 rebounds against the Lady Tigers. The duo should have the advantage once again against the NAIA Generals, members of the Red River Athletic Association.
LSU-Alexandria has lost “exhibition” games against UL-Lafayette (86-48), Southeastern Louisiana (96-78) and Sam Houston State (76-61) – Sunday’s game against Tech will count towards the Lady Techsters record but not towards the Generals. LSU-A also lost 84-68 to Xavier-New Orleans in the one game against another NAIA school.
The game marks the second meeting between the two programs as the Lady Techsters defeated LSU-A 103-63 last season in Ruston. It marked the first 100-plus point performance by a Lady Techster team in more than 11 seasons.
Sunday’s contest can be heard on the LA Tech Sports Network on KNBB 97.7 FM and KRMD 100.7 FM and 1340 AM while fans can also access the audio through the Louisiana Tech X mobile app. A live video stream of the game can be accessed through a subscription to CUSATV.com.
