Matched up against Wyoming over the weekend. Louisiana Tech was drilled 42-24 in the first half alone. The Bulldogs fell behind 48-41 the rest of the way and lost 92-65. David Green was the top team scorer on 21 points in 16 minutes.

PICK: I’m going to try Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs are fresh off a blowout loss to a decent Wyoming team, shooting 42.9 percent from the field with 10-of-27 (37 percent from 3-point range. LA Tech was out-rebounded 34-28 and had 11 turnovers. That said, the Bulldogs had a nice run going during their five-game win streak and they had hit 74 or more points in six straight games prior to the Wyoming loss. I like LA Tech to bounce back and cover in this one.
