First-year Louisiana Tech coach Tyler Summitt pushed his team to the breaking point in their first practice today:
RUSTON – Any doubts about Tyler Summitt changing the culture around Louisiana Tech’s women’s basketball program were put to rest Monday morning.
Weight vests, not basketballs, dominated the Lady Techsters’ first official practice of the fall as the main focus surrounded defense, rebounding and physicality.
“I’m not sure the players loved (it) … but it’s a culture that we gotta instill,” Summitt said. “The sooner we buy into it, the quicker we can actually get to using a basketball.”
