in

Rebecca Redgen led all scorers with 23 kills to go along with 10 digs for her sixth double-double of the season, but it was not enough on the day as Louisiana Tech fell to UTEP, 3-1 (19-25, 25-23, 20-25, 21-25), in volleyball action on Sunday at the Thomas Assembly Center.
Tech (9-17, 1-11 Conference USA) totaled 47 kills against UTEP (5-18, 3-9 C-USA), but 38 errors offset any success the Lady Techsters could have had, as the Miners had 48 kills and 12 blocks to clinch a road victory on Sunday.
