BOCA RATON, Fla. (Feb. 16, 2006) -- Without one of its most important players on the floor, the ETSU men's basketball team begins a daunting three-game road swing to end the season this Thursday night at Florida Atlantic. Game time is set for 7 p.m.

Senior guard Ben Rhoda (Dayton, Ohio) will likely miss the game after suffering a left ankle injury in practice a week ago. Even though the Bucs have won 14 of their last 17 games, those three losses came with Rhoda out of the lineup. ETSU (15-9, 12-5 A-Sun) is still in the thick of the A-Sun regular season race, just a half game back of Lipscomb and Belmont. The Bucs will play both of those teams in the final two games of the season next weekend in Nashville.
