The last time Louisiana Tech came off a loss this season, it had to face a Southwestern Athletic Conference opponent at home the next game.
The situation sets up the same this time as the Bulldogs look to rebound from their second defeat as they play host to SWAC foe Southern at 6:30 p.m. today inside the Thomas Assembly Center.
Both road losses were identical in a lot of areas for Tech (8-2). The opponents each came into the game shooting subpar from long range but set season highs in 3-pointers made.

Moment of silence this Christmas

Hawley, Heather.jpg

With Christmas next week — that’s right, it’s here already — I’ve started trying to divide up my time so that I have the opportunity to see all of the people who matter most to me.
My best friend from California, Allison, will be making her way to my part of the country for a short visit and I am very excited to see her — it’s been more than a year since our last visit.
She and her husband, Kevin, will spend Christmas with his family in Shreveport, and the sheer fact that the atmosphere in the Sims house is love, love and more love, makes me wish it was already Christmas eve.
