Bucs and No. 2 Wofford set to meet Thursday inside Freedom Hall

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 5, 2019)– Coming off a perfect 3-0 road swing, the ETSU men’s basketball team moved back to No. 8 in the most recent Mid-Major Top 25 Poll, which was released on Monday night.

ETSU enters the week with an overall record of 19-5 and a 9-2 mark in the Southern Conference following road wins at Western Carolina, Samford and Chattanooga.

This marks the fifth straight week the Blue and Gold have been ranked, including the fourth straight the Bucs have stayed inside the top 10. The No. 8 ranking ties ETSU’s highest mark this season.

Two of the top 10 teams in the poll are set to clash this week as ETSU takes on No. 2 Wofford this Thursday inside Freedom Hall. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. The Bucs and Terriers have combined for 38 wins this season, which ties the most of any matchup being contested across NCAA Division I on Thursday (Gonzaga and San Francisco also have 38 wins).

The Southern Conference is the only league to have three teams ranked in the top 10 and four ranked in the top 25.
