JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 4, 2007) -- Former ETSU standout Zakee Wadood will be the second of five fan favorites to be honored with a special replica jersey pin giveaway prior to Thursday night's Atlantic Sun Conference matchup with Lipscomb. The first 2,000 Buccaneer fans to enter Memorial Center will receive a free pin. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m.
The Bucs, 8-7 overall, 2-1 A-Sun, will be looking to recover from a heartbreaking 75-74 overtime loss to preseason league favorite Belmont on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Lipscomb, 8-6, 2-1, will also be trying to rebound from a loss Tuesday at Kennesaw State.
This game with the Bisons will wrap up a two-game league home stand for the Bucs, who will hit the road to take on A-Sun foes Gardner-Webb (Jan. 7) and Campbell (Jan. 9). ETSU is currently tied for third in the league along with Lipscomb and Mercer.
