Lunch plans? Sidelines Lunch resumes Tuesday with TTU basketball coaches

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Absent for the past two weeks due to travel and the holidays, the weekly Tennessee Tech Basketball Sidelines Lunch resumes Tuesday in the Eagles Nest of Eblen Center. The event, featuring Golden Eagle coaches Sytia Messer and Steve Payne, is open to the public.

Each weekly lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the coaches begin speaking at 12:10 p.m. They will discuss upcoming games as well as take a look back at recent action for their teams. The coaches use video highlights to help illustrate their comments. Each week's lunch is wrapped up before 1 p.m.

The cost of the event is $10 per person, which includes lunch, beverage and dessert.

The two basketball teams have been doing quite a bit of travling during the past few weeks, but both return to the court in Eblen Center this week. The men's team hosts Tennessee State Thursday at 7 p.m. and the women's team will entertain TSU Monday at 7 p.m.

In between, the Golden Eagles will host a doubleheader on Saturday against Morehead State with the women's contest at 5:30 p.m. and the men's at 7:30 p.m.
