Teams Seek Donations During "Hoops for Heroes"

Student-athletes from Tennessee Tech’s 14 athletic teams will participate in the Ohio Valley Conference  initiative "Hoops for Heroes" this Thursday and Saturday at the basketball doubleheaders in Eblen Center against Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State. The "Hoops for Heroes" initiative will benefit veterans in the Wounded Warrior Project -- a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose goal is to help injured service men and women of the US armed forces. The goal of this project is for each OVC school to raise money to send a wounded military veteran to the OVC basketball championship, March 2nd through the 5th, so they can be honored for their service to our country. Golden Eagle student-athletes will greet fans at the doors of Eblen Center, as well as walk around the sections to raise money for this effort during all four Tech basketball games this week.
