TTU To Take On OVC Newcomer Wednesday

Wednesday evening will mark the first ever meeting between the Tennessee Tech men’s basketball team and the Cougars of SIU Edwardsville. The Cougars will travel to Cookeville for the second game of a double-header event with the Golden Eagle women’s team, at 6 p.m. Moving up from Division II, the Cougars became the newest member of the OVC effective this year, but will only compete as a conference participant in softball this year. They will be considered a conference opponent in all sports beginning in the fall of 2011. The Cougars come to Cookeville with three straight losses, two on the road to the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Iowa, and one against Morehead State. Their current record is 1-and-6. Tennessee Tech has only played three games thus far this season, due to a cancellation of their match-up against Appalachian State last Tuesday. They have losses to East Tennessee State, Michigan State, and North Carolina State.
