JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 23, 2004) -- Fresh off a nationally-televised victory over Fresno State in the ESPN Bracket Buster Saturday last weekend, the East Tennessee State University men's basketball team is preparing for its final home game of the season Tuesday night at 7 p.m. against longtime Southern Conference rival Chattanooga. This game was originally scheduled for Monday, Feb. 23, but was rescheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 24 to accomodate Fox Sports Net South, which will televise the game. The Buccaneers, who are now 23-4 overall, 14-0 in SoCon play, hold a program-best, 15-game winning streak and are looking to keep their perfect league mark intact against the Mocs. Due to high demand for tickets, fans are encouraged to call the ETSU ticket office at 423.439.5371 and pre-order their tickets. A large crowd is expected to honor seniors Zakee Wadood (Lonoke, Ark.) and Jerald Fields (Gainesville, Fla.), who after winning four-straight SoCon North Division titles, will be making their final appearance at Memorial Center.
