Syracuse Basketball Welcomes Louisiana Tech to Dome on December 14

New, 10 comments

It's the second-ever meeting between the two schools and first since 1988.

The last time the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs visited the Carrier Dome, they left with a 106-98 overtime loss. Let's try not to make it so hard on ourselves this time.

The Bulldogs will return to the Carrier Dome for the first time since 1988 when they take on the Syracuse Orange on Sunday, December 14.

Tech is coming off of a solid 29-8 season that concluded with a Conference USA regular-season title and NIT berth. They'll be led by Kenneth Smith, who was an All-Conference pick and 2nd overall in Division I in assists (7.7) last season. They ended up 54th in the RPI for what it's worth.

Let's see how the overall schedule shakes out now...
