Highlights: Tulsa pulls away from Louisiana Tech to claim the C-USA title


TulsaEL PASO, TX – It didn’t take a miracle for Danny Manning’s Tulsa squad to make the NCAA tournament, just a hard-fought 69-60 win over Louisiana Tech in the Conference USA championship game.

26 years removed from leading Kansas to a national championship as a player, Manning is in his second year as the head coach of the Golden Hurricane.

James Woodard led the way for Tulsa with 27 points as the Hurricane makes a tournament appearance for the first time since 2003.

Dave Ryan and Kyle Macy called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
