With a berth in the Conference USA Tournament on the line, Louisiana Tech fell short of a postseason bid as the Lady Techsters dropped a 3-0 decision to Rice on a rainy Wednesday evening at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex in Ruston.
The disappointing end dropped Tech to 9-10-1 overall with a 4-6-0 mark in the program’s first year in Conference USA. Rice (7-7-3, 5-4-1 C-USA) clinches a spot in the league tournament that the Owls will host beginning next week.

NCAA rules GSU-JSU game ‘no contest’

in

The NCAA is recognizing the canceled game between Grambling State and Jackson State on Oct. 19 as a no contest, not with a win and a loss.
Grambling State’s players refused to travel to the game during a six-day player walkout. The Southwestern Athletic Conference then declared the game a forfeit.
The SWAC is allowed to give Jackson State a win and Grambling State a loss in its conference standings, but it can’t count the game toward the teams’ overall records.
The NCAA recognizes Jackson State as 6-2 overall and Grambling State as 0-8 overall.
