Still a deal: Season tickets for remainder of TTU games on sale through Saturday


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- The Ohio Valley Conference portion of the schedule has just gotten underway, and with it things are getting more interesting for Tennessee Tech's women's and men's basketball teams.

And fans.

Eblen Center will host 12 more nights of OVC basketball over the next two months, featuring 17 exciting conference games.

Combine that with an offer to save money, and fans can start the new year with a late gift to themselves. Season tickets are on sale through Saturday, and still represent a savings over individual game tickets. A season ticket for $100 will get a fan into all 17 games, representing a savings of $20 over the balance of the season.

"Basically, the entire season to this point has been free for our season ticket holders," said Sandy Zimmerman, Athletics Ticket Office Manager. "And, a season ticket also makes the next two nights free. So, fans can still purchase season tickets to watch the rest of the games and the first two nights are free."

The Golden Eagle men host Tennessee State Thursday night at 7 p.m., and both Tech teams will ignite a new OVC rivalry on Saturday when Belmont visits Eblen Center for the first conference games between the two neighboring schools. The women's game tips off at 5:30 p.m. and the men's game is slated for 7:30 p.m.

"With all of the after Christmas sales, everybody has been in the habit of saving money the past few days," Zimmerman said. "We just want to remind Golden Eagle basketball fans that there are still savings to be enjoyed with a season ticket."

Season tickets can be purchase by visiting the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center, or by calling (931) 372-3940. Season tickets may also be purchased online at TTUsports.com.
