Tennessee Tech basketball welcomes 2011 and Bluefield College on Sunday
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The TTU Golden Eagles will kick off the new year with game two of Sunday's double header event, taking on Bluefield College at 4 p.m. The women's team will face St. Louis University at 2 p.m.
Tech is a perfect 6-0 against Bluefield, and will look to continue the trend coming into the game off of a hefty 106-44 win over Crowley's Ridge College on Thursday evening. The win puts the Golden Eagles at 5-6 on the season, 2-1 in the Ohio Valley Conference.
The Rams, meanwhile, have lost their last two games to Charleston Southern and Mountain State University. Bluefield thus holds a 4-9 overall record, and has yet to commence AAC play.
Going 0-3 in the month of November and 5-3 in December, the Golden Eagles will look to widen the gap between wins and losses as they kick off the month of January with Sunday's matinee game. The Golden Eagles are currently 1-1 in games played on a Sunday, having suffered a loss to Michigan State on November 28 but defeating OVC opponent EIU on December 19.
