TTU Basketball Teams On The Road Again

In spite of the weather, the Tennessee Tech basketball teams travelled to Nashville Monday night for an OVC double header. For the more, it was dead even down to the final seconds. And then some. And then some more. For the fourth time this season Tennessee Tech was stretched to overtime, this time two overtime periods at Tennessee State, but with their four top post players fouled out the Golden Eagles ran out of muscle and fell to the Tigers 109-102 in the Gentry Center. Tech had a desperation shot to win at the buzzer in regulation and also the first overtime, but missed on both. The Golden Eagles didn’t get the same chance in the second overtime. Tech slipped to one game under .500 with a 13-14 overall record, including a 7-9 mark in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Tech women won 76-73. Both teams are on the road on Thursday and Saturday.
