Louisiana Tech struggled to find their groove on offense against UT Arlington in a 3-0 (20-25, 19-25, 23-25) sweep on Friday night in the Maverick Classic inside Texas Hall.

The Techsters' match will mark the beginning of a busy day for Tech athletics with the Bulldog football team taking on Rice at Joe Aillet Stadium at 6 p.m., Saturday and head coach Adriano de Souza encourages all Tech fans to show up in support of both Tech teams.

"Our players are excited and looking forward to starting our conference season at home," he said. "I would like to invite all of our Tech football fans to come out and watch the LATech volleyball team compete in WAC play before heading across the street to watch the football game."

Tech is led by junior middle blocker Emily Maher, who has recorded 72 kills while averaging 1.95 thus far this season. Sophomore setter Maria Coelho continues to put up numbers offensively with 320 assists on the season, ranking her eighth in the WAC standings.
