Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau will officially rename Memorial Gymnasium and its basketball court for legendary basketball coach Scotty Robertson.

Robertson, who died in August 2011, coached the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs from 1964 to 1974 and recorded a 161-86 mark while leading Louisiana Tech to its first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. He spent time in the NBA, serving as the head coach for three organizations and assistant coach for six more. Robertson was also honored as a Tech “Alumnus of the Year” for the university school of education.

During his tenure at Tech, Robertson led the Bulldogs to three Gulf States Conference championships, achieved the No. 1 national ranking in the college division and played in two college-division (later known as Division II) NCAA postseason tournaments.
