MILWAUKEE (AP) — Grambling State’s head coach Joe Price knew he’d be in for a long night against Marquette.
Chandler Thomas scored 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and A’Torri Shine added 17 in his first start of the season, but it wasn’t enough to keep Grambling State from losing 114-71 to No. 17 Marquette on Tuesday night. It was the 30th-straight loss for the Tigers.
“We just knew we were up against a tough team,” Price said. “They’re very physical.”

Robertson, Phil football mug.jpg

When Louisiana Tech plays at Rice Stadium on Saturday, it will be playing on a field that holds a fair amount of Bulldog football history.

In that game at Rice, Robertson completed three of his five attempted passes for 37 yards and netted three yards on two rush attempts in the 14-0 loss.

Show someone an act of kindness today

Recently, a Ruston resident shared the story of a Good Samaritan who found his life savings and returned them to the bank — rather than making off with them.
