Syracuse to take on Louisiana Tech for just second time


SYRACUSE — Louisiana Tech will return to the Carrier Dome for the first time since the 1988-89 season when Syracuse hosts the Bulldogs on Sunday, Dec. 14.

The two clubs have met once previously. Syracuse defeated Louisiana Tech in the championship game of the 1988 Carrier Classic, 106-98 in overtime.

Louisiana Tech finished 29-8 a season ago and won its second straight Conference USA regular-season title. Louisiana Tech lost in the Conference USA Tournament final and then went 2-1 in the NIT.

The Bulldogs feature senior guard Kenneth Smith, who ranked second in Division I assist average (7.7) and was a first-team All-Conference USA selection. Junior guard Alex Hamilton, a third-team All-Conference USA pick, averaged 14.5 points and 3.6 rebounds per game in 2013-14.
