RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech's volleyball squad will continue its four-match home stretch at 7 p.m. Thursday as they face off against the Denver Pioneers in this year's Dig Pink breast cancer awareness match.

The Lady Techsters (3-19, 0-9) are coming off losses in two home matches by close margins to Seattle and Idaho, and head coach Adriano de Souza said his team is eager to take to the court tomorrow night.

Tech Volleyball Shut Out by Denver Pioneers
The Louisiana Tech volleyball team fell in three sets to the Pioneers of Denver on the road tonight 25-16, 25-14, 25-16 Saturday night at Hamilton Gymnasium in Denver, Colo.

"We play two very good opponents this week, I invite our Louisiana Tech fans to come and support our Volleyball Team this Thursday and Friday," he said. "Our team has been practicing hard and I hope they can compete on game day with the same effort they bring to practice every day."

Tech will face the Pioneers for the second time this season, the first resulting in a straight set loss on the road for the Techsters.

Free pink T-shirts will be given out to fans attending the match while supplies last, and the Lady Techsters will also show their support as they will be outfitted in pink shirts for pregame warm ups and pink accents during the match to commemorate breast cancer awareness.

The Techsters will follow up Thursday night's match when they face New Mexico State Saturday at 2 p.m. Tech will also host a free volleyball clinic for boys and girls in grades 5-8 Saturday morning at 11 a.m. for those interested in participating in a training session with the Lady Techster squad.
