Tech (7-20, 2-11 C-USA) played its final two home matches of 2017 last weekend, falling to Charlotte and North Texas. Looking to rebound this week, the Techsters will need strong efforts from all across the lineup.

Senior Marta Monne has been one of the more consistent pieces for this year’s team, as she continues to lead the squad in kills (311), kills per set (3.27) and points (340.5). Her 275 digs and average of 2.89 digs per set are second best among team leaders.

For her four-year career in Ruston, Monne has put up 966 kills and 914 digs, while playing in 378 sets across 112 matches.

Some youngsters have also produced productive seasons for Tech to this point of the year, as freshmen Gina Cortesi and Carter Mirich have combined for 419 kills this year.

Fellow underclassman in sophomore Madeline Davis has registered a team-best 95 blocks and will be looking to crack 100 for the season on Thursday evening.

The Techsters will be looking to snap a streak of 11 straight defeats to the Golden Eagles (17-11, 7-5 C-USA). Earlier this season, Southern Miss defeated Tech, 3-0 in Ruston on Oct. 13.

Southern Miss is led by setter Sarah Bell, who has recorded 1,130 helpers this season alone. Fellow offensive threats in Kylie Grandy (334 kills) and Chandler Marshall (314 kills) have paced the squad to the fifth-highest hitting percentage in the league.

Live stats for the match can be found on the Louisiana Tech volleyball schedule page. The contests will be streamed live on ($).
