La. Tech, LSU to Meet in Exhibition for Disaster Relief

Jason Scott Headshot

As Louisiana Tech and the Ruston, La., community continue to recover from the tornado that ripped through the area on April 25, the school announced an exhibition basketball contest between the Bulldogs and in-state rival Louisiana State University to take place on Nov. 2.

According to a press release, all proceeds from the exhibition will go toward disaster relief.

“The response from our community, the state of Louisiana and across the nation has been inspiring,” Louisiana Tech AD Eric Konkol said in the release. “We are grateful to LSU for coming to Ruston to play in this exhibition game and aid in the rebuilding efforts. This game will benefit our team and excite our fans, but more importantly, it will provide a tremendous opportunity to raise resources for the Disaster Relief Fund. Let’s pack the TAC [Thomas Assembly Center] on November 2 and continue to be Ruston Strong!”
