STATESBORO, Ga. (Feb. 28, 2004) -- Georgia Southern outscored the East Tennessee State women's basketball team 37-25 in the second half, as the Eagles easily rolled to a 70-55 victory Saturday night over ETSU at Hanner Fieldhouse in Statesboro, Ga. The Lady Bucs conclude the 2003-04 regular season with two straight road losses and finish 13-13 overall and tied for third place in the Southern Conference with a mark of 13-7.
