RUSTON -- Louisiana Tech (5-6) returns home Monday, Dec. 22, to take on TCU (7-4) in the second game of a double-header for a scheduled 7 p.m. tip off in the Thomas Assembly Center after the Lady Techsters host UALR.

The Bulldogs most recently lost to Samford Thursday in Birmingham by a final score of 71-58. Tech led for a majority of the night before Samford's Bulldogs shot 71 percent in the second half of play to get the win.

The Horned Frogs have not played a game since Dec. 10 and have been off for nearly two weeks. Their last game was a 68-64 loss to Indiana, which snapped a six-game winning streak.

Junior Kyle Gibson leads the Bulldogs with 15.9 points per game, while junior Jamel Guyton is close behind at 13.7 ppg.

TCU is led in scoring by Kevin Langford at 13.1 points per game.

TCU leads the all-time series 6-4, but the Bulldogs picked up the win the last time the two teams played. Tech bested the Frogs in the 1999-2000 season by a final score of 95-76.
