Deadline extended for purchasing OVC Tourney tickets at reduced price

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Golden Eagle fans who plan to attend the Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Tournament in Nashville, March 2-5, have until the end of January to purchase all-session tickets for the reduced price of $60 each. The deadline has been extended one month by the conference office.

For the first time the entire tournament, featuring the top eight men's and top eight women's teams, will be played in Nashville instead of first round games being played at campus sites. The new format will allow fans to plan ahead to attend the tournament, and the all-session pass offers a significant savings over purchasing individual session tickets.

Tennessee Tech fans may purchase the OVC Tournament all-session tickets at the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center.

Heading into their mid-January home matchups against UT Martin (Thursday evening) and Murray State (Saturday evening), both Tech teams are in the thick of the race for OVC titles. The women's team is tied for first place in the standings with UT Martin and Eastern Illinois with 4-1 conference records. The men's squad is 3-2 in league play, and tied for fifth place with Murray State just one-half game out of second place.

To order OVC Tournament tickets, or for more information, please call the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center at (931) 372-3940.
