Coach's Show with Davis, Payne to air each Thursday on 106.1 The Eagle

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech basketball fans can keep up with the Golden Eagles through a variety of sources, and the Golden Eagle Sports Network has joined with Cookeville Communications once again to provide another option -- a weekly radio show featuring head coaches Jim Davis and Steve Payne.

The program, to be hosted on Fox Sports Radio 106.1 The Eagle by longtime "Voice of the Golden Eagles" Roger Ealey, will air each Thursday afternoon as segments during the popular Jim Rome Program. That national show is on from 2 to 3 p.m. The Tech segments will begin Thursday and will run through the end of the season. The only week it will not be aired is Dec. 27.

Davis is in his first season as head coach of the TTU women's team and directs a team that has been picked to win the Ohio Valley Conference East Division in 2013. Payne is in his second season as head coach of the men's team, after serving as associate head coach for nine seasons. His team is picked third this season in the OVC East Division.

Both teams will be in action Thursday night in Eblen Center, the final home games for each squad until January. The women's team will host Samford at 5:30 p.m. and the men's squad entertains UW Green Bay at 7:30 p.m. Individual game tickets and season tickets are on sale at the Athletics Ticket Office in Eble Center or by calling (931) 372-3940.
