WAC Tournament Women's Game No. 5 - No. 2 Louisiana Tech vs. No. 7 New Mexico State

The final quarterfinal game is underway as second-seeded Louisiana Tech battles with seventh-seeded New Mexico State for a chance to play third-seeded Nevada in the semifinals on Friday night.

(12:30) With the score knotted at 10-10, Louisiana Tech's Shanavia Dowdell converted on a lay-up to put the Techsters up two. 

The two teams are just four days removed from playing each other in Las Cruces last Saturday when Louisiana Tech won a 78-69 contest to sweep the season series. 

NMSU's Pistol Pete breaks out into his own version of ... I'm not really sure what to call it. It included lots of gyrating of the hips, some waving of his arms was involved... please send us any possible names for this so called "dance."

(10:00) Meanwhile, Tech has pulled away with an 11 point lead with Shanavia Dowdell and Whitney Jones collecting seven points apiece.

WAC Director of Championships, Elizabeth Kampfe, points out that all the males in the New Mexico State band have pink lettering instead of the normal white. Why is this? The red dye from the NMSU shirt has bled on the font. Moral of the story: Men do not know how to do laundry. 

(3:51) At a timeout, Tech leads 25-20...

The "Verizon Dance Off" got a little crazy as the band played and the dancers danced.

I'm going to go ahead and apologize to all the readers out there. The blog for this game definitely wasn't my best material. After a long day of basketball, I am 0-for-thoughts, 0-for-coherentness and 1-for-8 on funny jokes. Tune in tomorrow for maximum comedic value. 

Halftime score update: Louisiana Tech takes a 33-26 lead into the locker room. 

Note: New Mexico State has registered 13 turnovers while the Techsters have only committed two... LTU has scored 14 points off of those turnovers, hence the seven-point deficit. 

The second half is getting started and we have a 38-30 game, with LTU leading.

Everyone currently has the fourth-game funnies.

One lucky fan just one a $100 gift card for a Spa treatment at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino for on-the-spot shooting, his significant other must be stoked!

Score update: LTU 58, NMSU 42

Louisiana Tech's Adrienne Johnson is pacing the Techsters with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Score update: LTU 73, NMSU 60

Final Score: LTU 81, NMSU 68
