 JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Dec. 8, 2006) - After a 23 day absence and seven straight road games, the ETSU men's basketball team will finally return home to play inside Memorial Center Saturday at 4 p.m. against nearby foe Milligan.

The Bucs, who wrapped up a successful road swing with a 5-5 overall record and stand atop the Atlantic Sun Conference standings with a 2-0 mark, will play three home games in a row before wrapping up their December schedule with a trip to Tennessee (Dec. 30). The other home games this month include UNC Asheville (Dec. 19) and Radford (Dec. 21).

As part of Saturday's ETSU men's basketball game with Milligan, the Buccaneers will honor the United States Armed Services with a special "Military Night" program and promotion.

Special discounted tickets for "military personnel" will be made available for only $7. Fans wishing to purchase these special tickets will need their military ID. In addition, members of each branch of the military will be present for the National Anthem, while a special brass band will perform each branch's anthem during a special halftime ceremony.

Also, Elizabethton native and wounded Marine veteran Nathan Morrow will serve as honorary coach on the ETSU bench, and his fellow Marine's will be collecting toys as fans enter the gate as part of their traditional "Toys for Tots" campaign. Any fan bringing a toy for the Marines will also be able to purchase a $7 discounted ticket.
