RUSTON, La. (AP) - The college basketball world is beginning to take notice of a little team in North Louisiana.

Raheem Appleby scored 16 points and No. 25 Louisiana Tech extended the nation's longest winning streak to 18 games Saturday night, clinching at least a share of its first Western Athletic Conference championship with an 88-61 victory over San Jose State.

"It was good to be able to send our seniors out with a win like that," Bulldogs coach Michael White said. "It was also good to accomplish one of our preseason goals that we started the season with and that was to finish undefeated at home. Winning a conference championship or at least a share of it was something that we set out to do for months. It's exciting, but there is still a lot left to play for over the next week."
