JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 3, 2006) -- With a two-game winning streak on the books, the ETSU men's basketball team will look to keep rolling as the Buccaneers return to Atlantic Sun Conference play Wednesday night, hosting Florida Atlantic at Memorial Center beginning at 7 p.m.

The Bucs will welcome an Owls team coached by former UNC head coach Matt Dougherty. It will be the first-ever meeting between the two programs, but it will be an important one, as the Bucs look to break through with their first A-Sun win against an FAU team that is currently a perfect 3-0 in league play. It will be the first of 18 straight A-Sun games for the Bucs.
