Cut 16 (15) “…what happens”
The Longhorns visited LSU last year and the Tigers took two of three.

In college hoops last night, ULM and the Ragin Cajuns both won. The Warhawks defeated Appalachian State 81-75 as Daishon Smith had 26 points. JaKeenan Gant poured in 29 points as UL-Lafayette defeated Coastal Carolina 83-70. Both teams are 8-7 in league play. La tech dropped its first home game, falling to Marshall 90-79.


The Pelicans have reportedly signed Euroleague shooting guard Dairis Bertans to a two-year contract. Bertans shot nearly 50-percent from three-point territory for a team in Italy. To make room for Bertans on the roster, New Orleans has waived Tim Frazier. The Pels are in Phoenix tomorrow night.

Former LSU pitcher Aaron Nola should be a happy man. That’s because his Phillies have signed Bryce Harper to a 13-year, 330 million dollar contract.

Jason Whitten is leaving the Monday night football broadcast booth and returning to the football field. Whitten is ending his retirment so that he can play his 16th season with the Cowboys.

At the girls state basketball championships, North Caddo advanced to the Class Two-A Championship game with a 48-47 win over Red River yesterday. They’ll face Mansfield, who knocked off Rayville 57-49.

Six state champions will be crowned today and six more tomorrow. All of the games will be shown live on C-S-T. The final game tonight is the Class 4A championship game between Benton and Warren Easton.
