Women host Tennessee Wesleyan Saturday at 6 p.m.
Doubleheader next Wednesday also starts at 6 p.m.

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Starting times for the next two nights of basketball in Eblen Center have slightly different starting times than fans are used to, so Tech officials are hoping to spread the word.

The women's basketball game on Saturday (Nov. 27) against Tennessee Wesleyan will start at 6 p.m. CT, with the ticket office and gates opening at 5 p.m.

Next Wednesday, when Tech hosts a doubleheader, the starting time is 30 minutes later than the usual twinbill tipoff. The first game of the night will be the men's game as coach Mike Sutton's team hosts SIU Edwardsville at 6 p.m. The nightcap will feature coach Sytia Messer's team at 8 p.m. against arch-rival Middle Tennessee.

Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center will be closed Thursday and Friday, and will open Saturday at 5 p.m. The ticket office will be open during its regular hours next week.

Season tickets and individual game tickets are on sale, and may be purchased at the ticket office or by calling (931) 372-3940. Tickets may also be purchased online at
