RUSTON, La. - Following Friday night's contest at Tulsa, Louisiana Tech returns home to Ruston to battle league foe FIU in the team's annual Dig Pink match at 1 p.m. Sunday in Scotty Robertson Memorial Gymnasium.

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Lady Techsters will be wearing pink shoe strings and accents, while free pink LA Tech Volleyball T-shirts will be given away to all fans in attendance while supplies last.
