COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Jason Jitoboh registered a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds, but the Tennessee State men’s basketball team fell to the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles 70-50 on the road Tuesday.

In addition to Jitoboh’s double-double, the Tigers (15-11, 8-5) were led by Kinyon Hodges, who recorded eight points, eight rebounds and two steals, and by Christian Brown, who tacked on 16 points.
