Rupp’s squad faces Redhawks

Tech will be trying to halt a two-game losing streak against the Redhawks (3-3), a member of the Ohio Valley.
Both of those defeats came against Arkansas-based clubs and on the road. The ‘Dogs were stopped 67-54 by the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff before losing the University of Arkansas-Little Rock 63-49.

Crews to drain derailed tanks

Dennis said three tank cars have been moved from the derailment site and are being thoroughly inspected before they are sent back on track to their destination.
None of the hazardous material spilled or leaked from the derailed cars, but officials have closed the area to residents and traffic as a precaution.
If all goes well today, Dennis said crews will transfer the butadiene from the two derailed tankers into other train tank cars this afternoon.
