CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (1/21/05) -- The East Tennessee State University men's basketball team returns to Southern Conference action on Saturday with a crucial North Division battle with longtime rival Chattanooga at 2 p.m. in the McKenzie Arena.

The game, which will be broadcast on television by Fox SportsNet South and on radio by the Mountain States Health Alliance Buccaneer Sports Network, will be a rematch of the last two SoCon Tournament championship contests. The Bucs have won four-straight over the Mocs, but have struggled early this season with a 6-10 overall and 2-4 SoCon record. Meanwhile, the Mocs have looked good this season and are currently 11-4, 4-1.
