Louisiana Tech University will host its biggest non-conference game of the year when the Lady Techsters welcome the LSU Tigers to the Thomas Assembly Center in the second game of a men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader Dec. 29.
The day will begin when Michael White and the Bulldogs host Spring Hill College at 5 p.m. followed by Teresa Weatherspoon and the Lady Techsters hosting LSU.
There’s no question Doug Williams left his mark on the Grambling State football program as a player and as a coach.
Now back for his second stint as football coach, he’s restoring the pride for the GSU program. There’s a new Tiger statue standing in front of the Eddie Robinson Stadium Support Complex, which has been given the name “Pride” by junior receiver Dezmond Spivey.
Pride is a acronym standing for the words “Perserverance, Restoring the tradition, Innovative, Determination and Education.”
After fighting back from two sets down, Louisiana Tech could not muster up enough of a comeback and fell to in-state foe Northwestern State, 3-2 (15-25, 18-25, 25-22, 25-18, 11-15), Tuesday night at the Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston.
The Lady Techsters (6-9) closed out non-conference play with a valiant effort after dropping the opening two sets to the Lady Demons of Northwestern State (6-8) only to fall short in the end.
