Casey Owens wins men's basketball shoe give-away

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Casey Owens, a freshman from Morristown West High School, is the owner of a brand new pair of Nike running shoes thanks to the Tennessee Tech men's basketball team and head coach Mike Sutton.

During the recent Freshmen Welcome event in which TTU student-athletes welcomed freshmen students to Tech with games, live entertainment, food and prizes, Owens was entered into a drawing held by the men's basketball team, and was the winner of a new pair of shoes.

"It's a good opportunity for us to generate interest and enthusiasm for our program and get the students involved," Sutton said. "We have a lot of fun giving away prizes and having contests with the student body here."
