After a dramatic buzzer-beater win against Northwestern State, Louisiana Tech’s men’s basketball team looks to continue its good form against Arkansas-Little Rock Saturday and Northeastern Tuesday.

 

Despite losing all but one of their road games this season, the Bulldogs are trying to keep their undefeated record at home intact.

 

Head coach Michael White said his team needs to learn how to win and play together as a whole.

 

“We need to put a lineup together that plays well together consistently,” White said. “It seems like we have had eight or nine different guys that have been our best player on certain nights. Good teams have four or five that play well together.”

 

Senior guard Trevor Gaskins said he thinks the Bulldogs’ coaches have a good game plan for the next two games but said the team still has room for improvement.

 

“We could always get better defensively, get back in transition, and be more consistent,” Gaskins said. “I think we really need to improve on defense. We need to play team basketball.”

 

White and his staff are prepared to face two experienced and well coached teams.

 

“We have a couple of pretty good guards that need to do a better job at containing penetration,” White said. “We have great depth in our guards to block.”

 

The game against Arkansas-Little Rock will be Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Thomas Assembly Center and Northeastern will be Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the TAC.
