Teams collecting donations during "Hoops for Heroes" SAAC initiative
Thursday is also Military Appreciation
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Student-athletes of Tennessee Tech’s 14 athletic teams will participate in the Ohio Valley Conference SAAC initiative "Hoops for Heroes" this Thursday and Saturday at the basketball doubleheaders in Eblen Center against Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State.
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 2-5, so they can escape everyday life, enjoy a relaxing weekend, and be honored for their service to our country.
For Military Appreciation Night Thursday, all members of the military and their families are invited to attend the games against Eastern Kentucky. Military personnel, both active and retired, receive free admission to the game by showing their military ID.
