Tech men pummeled at Lubbock

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs suffered one of the most humiliating men's basketball defeats in school history on Wednesday night when they lost 86-31 to Bobby Knight's Texas Tech Red Raiders. Yes, the same Red Raiders who've been beaten by Centenary and Sam Houston State this season.

Think the Knightster stayed around for the second half of that one?

To add insult to injury, highlights of TTech's 41-2 run were shown on ESPN, along with several missed layups and a missed dunk by the Bulldogs.

Tech coach Kerry Rupp is going through a rebuilding campaign with five potential starters sitting out this season for a variety of reasons, but give us a break! How does a Division I men's basketball team score only 12 points in a half and then go nine minutes in the second half before scoring?

The Bulldogs need to just take a bye for the remainder of the season because they may not win another game.

I am as stunned as you. I have no dog in the hunt, but thought for sure the score had to be a misprint.
It's unfortunate Tech has gone downhill while Centenary appears to be a solid team. I am happy for the Gents and from what I see Rob Flaska has done an incredible job on Kings Highway.
When he came in that team was terrible. I mean terrible!!
I will be very interested to see how they shape up against the Summit League.
Again, though, I know you hate it as much as anyone to see the Bulldogs in the state they are.
At least the Gents begin conference play with some hope.
