EX-BOSSIER STAR WEST PLAYS KEY ROLE IN NSU RALLY
THIBODAUX — Former Bossier star Jalan West played a big role in Northwestern State’s come-from-behind 84-79 victory over Nicholls State Saturday.
NSU overcame a 13-point deficit in the second half.
West’s layup with 1:19 left put the Demons up for good, 78-76, and he sealed the outcome with a steal with five seconds left after Nicholls missed a pair of 3-point shots that could have tied the game during its final possession. West, fouled after the steal, swished two free throws with two seconds left to provide the clinching points.
The Demons (18-6, 12-2 Southland) moved into a first-place tie in the conference with Stephen F. Austin, which lost to Southeastern Louisiana 54-50 Saturday.
TECHSTERS WIN ON BASKET WITH .2 SECONDS LEFT
RUSTON — Whitney Frazier hit a three-pointer with .2 seconds to play to lift Louisiana Tech to a 64-62 victory over Idaho Saturday night before 2,404 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center.
Frazier’s heroics were set up when Idaho sophomore guard Stacey Barr gave the Vandals a 62-61 lead with a 10-foot bank shot in the lane with 8.4 seconds to play in the game.
Following a timeout by Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon, the Lady Techsters inbounded the basketball to guard Janay Borum who slipped down at mid-court. Borum kept her composure, fed former Benton star Lulu Perry who took a couple of dribbles to the top of the key before finding an open Frazier standing in front of the Tech bench.
Frazier took the pass, let the shot loose and watched as hit banked home with less than a second to play as her teammates mobbed her in front of Tech scorer’s table.
