RUSTON, La. -
After completing a two-match road stretch, the Louisiana Tech volleyball team return home to battle Texas State in the first of the team's final two home games of the 2012 season.
The Lady Techsters are coming off four- and three-set losses to San Jose State and Utah State on the road, and will face the Bobcats for the second time this season, the first meeting resulting in a straight-set loss for Tech on the road.
"Our team is looking forward to playing at home again," head coach Adriano de Souza said. "As for Texas State and UTSA, they are both very good teams. I am sure our players will prepare well for these next two opponents and I hope we put our best effort during our matches this week."
With just five games remaining on the schedule, Tech (3-22, 0-13 WAC) comes into the match looking to break a 16-match losing streak and notch its first win at home since Sept. 5.
Texas State leads the all-time series between the two schools with a 5-2 record, and is seventh in the WAC standings with a 12-12 record on the year and a 7-6 mark in conference play.
After Thursday's match against the Bobcats, Tech will return to action at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 in the Thomas Assembly Center to face the Roadrunners of UTSA.
