JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 6, 2006) -- The ETSU men's basketball team is set to hit the highway for its first critical Atlantic Sun Conference road swing of the season starting Saturday with a matchup against conference-leading Campbell. Game time in Buies Creek, N.C., is scheduled for 1 p.m.

The Bucs are fresh off a 63-61 win Wednesday over Florida Atlantic, a team which entered Memorial Center previously undefeated in A-Sun action. With a three-game winning streak now in hand, ETSU will look to maintain its recent momentum and continue to battle back into the league race.

ETSU (4-6 overall, 1-2 A-Sun) will face three of the top teams in the league during the swing, meeting Campbell Saturday, followed by Gardner-Webb (Jan. 9) and Kennesaw State (Jan. 12).

Fans can listen as the Bucs make an early season run at the top of the league standings by tuning into any of the Mountain States Health Alliance Buccaneer Sports Network affiliates or by clicking on the live Internet feed located at ETSUBucs.com.
