COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Golden Eagle basketball fans around the region who don’t get the chance to visit Eblen Center Sunday afternoon will still have the opportunity to watch Tennessee Tech’s two basketball teams in Ohio Valley Conference action.

Both contests in the afternoon doubleheader against Eastern Illinois will be televised by the Wazoo Sports Network, with the men’s game being picked up and aired throughout the entire Southeast region by CSS TV.

Locally, WCTE TV in Cookeville will also carry both games, allowing fans throughout the middle Tennessee region the chance to see both unbeaten Golden Eagle teams in OVC action.

The women’s game begins at 1 p.m., and will be seen on the Wazoo network throughout the state of Kentucky, along with WEIU TV in Charleston, Ill., and WCTE TV.

Veteran coach Bill Worrell (left), who directed the women’s basketball program at Tech to more than 400 victories, will provide the color analysis. He will join play-by-play announcer Bob Belvin courtside in calling the action.

The men’s game is slated to tip off at 4 p.m. Belvin and Jim Tirey are scheduled to call the games on the telecast.

Two special promotions are planned for Sunday’s games, providing free admission to youth basketball players and one dollar ticket options to fans.

For Jr. Pro Day, all youth basketball players will be admitted free just by wearing their games shirts. It’s also Church Bulletin Sunday, with fans ale to purchase (up to four) tickets for one dollar each by showing a church bulletin at the ticket windows in Eblen Center.

The doors will open at noon for the 1 p.m. start.
