Box Score

(AP)--Brandon Gibson grabbed the offensive rebound with a few seconds left in the first half, wheeled toward the basket and put up an awkward running 10-footer between two defenders as time expired.

Somehow, it went in. Of course it did. On this night, nearly all of Louisiana Tech's shots did.

Playing as a nationally ranked team for the first time since Karl Malone was a college superstar in 1985, No. 25 Louisiana Tech cruised past Utah State for an 84-61 victory Thursday night, its 17th straight win to stay undefeated in the Western Athletic Conference.

"On nights we make shots to complement our ability to defend -- we're pretty good," Louisiana Tech coach Michael White said. "And that happened tonight at a level that we haven't done all year."

Gibson scored 20 points and Raheem Appleby added 15 as Louisiana Tech shot 31 of 62 (50 percent) from the field, including 11 of 21 (52.4 percent) from 3-point range.
