RUSTON, LA (KSLA) - Louisiana Tech will host LSU in an exhibition contest called “Hoops 4 Disaster Relief” on Nov. 2 in the Thomas Assembly Center on Karl Malone Court.
Head coach Eric Konkol announced the contest Friday, May 10.
The proceeds from the event will benefit disaster relief efforts following the tornado that hit Ruston and LA Tech’s campus on April 25.
“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," said Konkol.
“This is what we do in Louisiana,” said LSU head coach Will Wade. “When someone needs help, we all pitch in. For us, it gives our guys the opportunity to travel and go play a good team away while we prepare for the season. It’s helpful for everybody and we’re glad to be a part of it.”
