Saturday, January 29, 2005
NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State basketball teams each suffered disappointing losses at Austin Peay, but will have the opportunity to return to action quickly when they make the trip to play Tennessee Tech in a doubleheader. Both the Lady Tigers and Tigers will be facing a challenge in the Tech teams. Both teams have dropped just one game in the Ohio Valley Conference. The men's team is 8-0 while the women are 9-2 in games played in the Eblen Center. The Lady Tigers are coming off their worse loss of the conference slate. TSU gave up a season-high 90 points at Austin Peay in a 33-point defeat. The Lady Tigers are 5-13 overall and 2-5 within the OVC, surpassing their one game win total of last season. Despite scoring a season-low 51 points in an 18-point defeat at Austin Peay, the Tigers continue to be the OVC's top scoring teams. They will match against a Tech team, which is second in scoring offense. Both TSU teams have opened their respective conference schedules by playing six of their first eight OVC games away from home. The teams will host Eastern Kentucky Thursday.
