Louisiana Tech and the Bulldog Baseball team has announced its schedule for the 2014 baseball season, featuring a 12-game home stand to open the season, a total of eight home weekend series and three-game series against SEC and Big Ten opponents.
Overall, the Diamond ’Dogs will play 29 home games inside J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park in 2014, including eight home weekend series and five midweek contests over the course of the season.
JaQuan Jackson scored 20 points and Whitney Frazier added 19 to lead Louisiana Tech to a 69-39 win over New Orleans before 1,217 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center Friday night.
Tech (1-4), which had struggled defensively in its first four games of the year, held the Privateers (0-5) to only 39 points on 24 percent shooting for the game. The Lady Techsters also forced 21 turnovers which led to a 17-2 advantage on points off of turnovers.
One of Brandi Wingate’s biggest fans has never seen her play.
Brittney Holland, the 28-year-old sister of Brandi, was born with cerebral palsy and is blind.
According to Brandi, the senior forward for Louisiana Tech, Brittney doesn’t like loud noises or big crowds so she has never attended one of her “little” sister’s games.
It doesn’t matter.
The two have a remarkable bond despite Brittney lacking the ability to communicate like most people. They have a connection that goes beyond words. Or sports.
