TTU Basketball Team Loses At Michigan State

Zach Bailey and Kevin Murphy scored 11 points each for Tennessee Tech in a losing effort Sunday afternoon as the Golden Eagles dropped a 73 to 55 decision at number-two ranked Michigan State. Tech is now 0-and-3 on the season, but they have yet to play a home game.  Their home opener last week was canceled when visiting Appalachian State failed to supply officials for the game. Tech will try again to play a home game Wednesday night against SIU-Edwardsville. Tech coach Mike Sutton said, "(The) game was a little sloppy. I don't think you saw either team play its best basketball, but I am certainly proud of our kids for how hard they fought. For us it tells us what you have to do to be playing in March."
