Bucs, Tennessee Tech to meet on ESPN BracketBuster Saturday

Monday, February 04, 2008

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 4, 2008)  -  The ETSU men's basketball team will play host to former Ohio Valley Conference rival and in-state foe Tennessee Tech as part of the annual ESPN BracketBuster Saturday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. inside Memorial Center.

 

The Buccanneers (13-9, 7-2 Atlantic Sun) and the Golden Eagles (10-15, 7-8) have met 66 times in a series that dates back to 1923. The two teams are tied in the series 33-33, but the Bucs have enjoyed three straight wins, with the last meeting coming in 2004.

           

"This will be a good late season test for our team as we prepare for our conference tournament," said ETSU head coach Murry Bartow, whose team is currently enjoying a five-game winning streak. "We have a long tradition against Tennessee Tech, and this will be a fun matchup for our fans that remember the days in the OVC. Having a return trip next year to Tennessee Tech will also give our fans a non-conference game they can travel to easily."
