COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Fans who cannot attend the Ohio Valley Conference Volleyball Tournament at Morehead State this week can still follow the Golden Eagles throughout their bid for a league title. All of Tech's matches in the tournament will be broadcast on the Golden Eagle Sports Network via Free Teamline, with games available on either the Internet or the telephone.

Former Golden Eagle player and coach Mandy (Miller) Thatcher and Sports Information Intern Nick Burns will be courtside in Morehead to call the action. The broadcast will begin with five minutes prior to the opening serve, so matches on Thursday and Friday can be heard beginning at 3:25 p.m. CT. The championship match will air at 3:55 p.m. on Saturday.

Tech opens the tournament Thursday against Jacksonville State. The Golden Eagles, playing in the OVC Tourney for the fourth consecutive year, are bidding for their second tournament title in three years and the league's automatic invitation to the NCAA Tournament.
