Jackson County Night is Thursday in Eblen Center

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Residents of neighboring Jackson County can purchase tickets for just one dollar each for Thursday's Ohio Valley Conference basketball doubleheader in Eblen Center. Tennessee Tech hosts UT Martin in an important pair of games, starting with the women's game -- a battle for first place in the OVC -- which begins at 5:30 p.m.

Jackson County residents can purchase the $1 tickets by showing their ID or driver's license at the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center, either in advance or at the game on Thursday night.

The night is also Vision Basketball Night, with an invitation for all youth basketball players to receive free admission simply by wearing their game shirts.

On Saturday, Tech hosts Putnam County Night for the Murray State doubleheader, which also tips off at 5:30 p.m. with the women's game. The same $1 offer is available to all residents of Putnam County.

Earlier in the year, Tech hosted White County Night. The fourth special county night is on Saturdya, Feb. 5, when Tech hosts Overton County Night at the doubleheader against Morehead State.
