Tech To Host Women's NIT Game Thursday

For the first time since the 2005-06 season, the Tennessee Tech women's basketball team finds itself back in postseason play as it will host Auburn in the first round of the Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) Thursday. Tipoff in Eblen Center is set for 7 p.m. Tickets for Thursday's game went on sale Tuesday at 8 a.m., and can be purchased through TTUsports.com or by calling or visiting the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center (931-372-3940). Tickets are $11 for adults, with the price set by the WNIT. Season ticket holders have until noon Wednesday to renew their reserved seats. Tech students will be admitted free with a valid TTU ID, with Tennessee Tech student tickets being purchased by donors to the TTU Athletics Association. Students may pick up tickets in advance at the Eblen Center ticket office or at the game, and will enter through the student gate on the north side of Eblen Center next to the Fitness Center. All other student tickets are $6 each.  TTU was one of 31 schools to receive an automatic bid to the WNIT due to Tech winning the regular season Ohio Valley Conference championship.
