Happy Valentine's Day: Sweetheart Special for Monday's game

Fans might also experience "blizzard" conditions at next week's games

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech is offering a Sweetheart Special for Monday's Valentine's Day men's basketball game when Tennessee State visits. Fans can purchase two tickets for the price of one for the 7 p.m. game against the Tigers.

Tech and TSU are both locked in a tight race for the OVC championship. The Tigers took the measure of the Golden Eagles in Nashville last month and coach Mike Sutton's team will look to avenge that loss in front of a home crowd in the Eblen Center. Gates will open at 6 p.m. with tipoff at 7.

Rumors have also been swirling through the mid-South winter air of a possible blizzard for the game against Tennessee State -- the non-slippery kind that won't keep any fans from getting to the arena. More details will be announced soon regarding the "weather" forecast.

For tickets  or more information on the Sweetheart Special, please call the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center (931) 372-3940.
