Golden Eagles host kids of Mustard Seed Ranch at Eblen Center

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech men's basketball team continued to show its presence in the Cookeville community on Friday, hosting the kids of Mustard Seed Ranch for lunch and a day of fun activities.

The day began with a tour of the Tennessee Tech campus, led by senior center Terrell Barnes and junior forward Dennis Ogbe. The children were shown the best that Tech has to offer while also gathering an insight to the other side of the life of student athletes. Following the tour, the rest of the team, as well as members of the women's team, met up with the MSR kids for a pizza party lunch, sharing stories and good times.

A small tour of the Golden Eagles' facilities was next on the plate, followed by a slew of fun games and activities. Included in the activities were shooting around, organized basketball games, and just some good, old-fashioned running around.
