|Women start tough road trip on Friday|
On Tap This Week:
A Look At Louisiana Tech:
Tech has three scorers ranked in the top five overall in the conference, as Shanavia Dowdell leads the WAC with 15.2 points per game, Adrienne Johnson ranks fourth with 14.0 and Whitney Jones ranks fifth at 13.9 per game. Dowdell’s 9.1 rebounds per game are also good for second in the WAC behind Idaho’s Yinka Olorunnife.
Last time these two teams met, Idaho erased an 18-point second-half deficit over the final 11 minutes of the game and had two chances to take the lead in the final seconds before forcing overtime. A slow start by Idaho in overtime gave Tech the cushion it needed to escape Moscow with the 67-63 win.
After Idaho beat Hawai’i last Sunday, La Tech stands as the only remaining WAC team that the Vandals have never defeated. The all-time record between the two schools sits at 0-8, with seven meetings coming the regular season and one in the 2006 WAC Tournament.
