COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – In what is sure to be another neck and neck season in the OVC, the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles were selected to finish fifth in this season preseason poll conducted by the head coaches and sports information directors of the OVC.
“It’s probably harder to pick 6-10 than 1-5 this season,” said head coach John Blair. “Last season I believe Austin Peay was picked near the bottom to start the season but they led most of the way. Everything is decided on the court at the end of the day.”
Morehead State topped the list with 153 votes, including 11 first-place votes, while Jacksonville State finished second with 139 votes, including nine first-place votes. JSU won the OVC Championship last season, while Morehead State finished in third.
