Louisiana Tech (6-3, 4-3 D1) at Stephen F. Austin (5-2, 2-2 D1) – 7:30 PM EST (ESPN+)
After a weeklong hiatus from one of our writers, the UTR Game of the Day resumes with one of the better matchups we’ve had so far this season – the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs hit the road to take on the Lumberjacks of Stephen F. Austin. In their last outing, SFA finished 3rd in the Belfast Classic in Northern Ireland with an opening-round loss to San Francisco but won their final game against Milwaukee. Shannon Bogues currently leads SFA with 14.3 points a game; Kevon Harris also averages 12.3 points a game and 6.3 rebounds a game.
Louisiana Tech has rebounded a bit from their recent 2-game losing streak against UNC-Greensboro and Delaware; they’ve won a pair of home buy games against Houston Baptist and Prairie View. While the Bulldogs have won a pair of games against Southland teams (they beat Sam Houston State earlier in the season), this is another major road test for the Bulldogs. This will be their first game at SFA in two decades. Louisiana Tech has 5 players averaging double figures in points; Exavian Christon leads the way with 12 points a game.
If you happen to be in the Nagodoches area for the game, SFA is running a cross promotion with Toys for Tots for tonight’s game. Free admission is provided for anyone who brings an unwrapped toy to the game (valued at $10 and up)!
