COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech has announced the starting times for all Golden Eagle basketball games during the 2013-14 season, home and away. The season begins Tuesday, Nov. 5, with a women's exhibition game in Eblen Center against Truett-McConnell at 7 p.m CT.
Tech's single home games, with the exception of one women's game, will all tip off at 7 p.m. The one exception comes on Nov. 24 as the women's team hosts Valparaiso at 2 p.m. in a Sunday afternoon matchup. Game times for the three home doubleheaders feature a women's tipoff at 5:30 p.m. and the men's game at 7:30 p.m.
The road games for the women's and men's teams have a wide variety of starting times including a 9:30 a.m. matchup at Akron for the women's team and an 8:05 p.m. tip for the men's team at Utah Valley.
A couple of OVC doubleheaders on the road have afternoon starting times. The doubleheader at Belmont will start with the women's game at 2 p.m. and the men's game will follow at 4 p.m. When both squads travel to Austin Peay, the women will tip at 5:15 p.m. and the men will start at 7:30 p.m. The final two games of the season for both squads will feature doubleheaders as the squads travel to the Eastern Time Zone to face Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State. The women's game at EKU will start at 4:30 p.m, with the men's following at 6 p.m., and the games at Morehead State will start with the women's game at 4:15 p.m. and the men's game at 6:30 p.m.
On additional quirk to the home schedule comes on Tuesday, Nov. 12, when the men's squad hosts Loyola Chicago in a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the two teams meeting in the 1963 NCAA Tournament. On that evening, the Golden Eagle volleyball team hosts Jacksonville State at 5:30 p.m. in Eblen Center, with the basketball game to follow at 7:30 p.m., making for a unique doubleheader.
