MACON, Ga. (Feb. 24, 2018) – The ETSU women’s basketball team concluded their regular season today in Macon, Ga. The Bucs fell 63-48 to the No. 25 Mercer Bears on Saturday afternoon in Hawkins Arena. Mercer finishes their season with an overall record of 27-2 and went a perfect 14-0 in conference action. ETSU drops to 18-11 and 11-3 in the SoCon, but will still remain as the No. 2 seed, as they head into the conference tournament next week.
Inside the Numbers
The Bucs head to Asheville, N.C. for the SoCon Tournament. They will play Wofford on March 1 at 3:30 p.m.
“Obviously you’re disappointed any time you lose, but we’ve actually had an opportunity to talk as a team and watch the film and know there’s some areas we need to tune up,” said head coach Brittney Ezell. “We’ve had an incredible non-conference. We’ve had an incredible regular season and now we’re ready for the next step in our process, which is the conference tournament. Yes, we’re disappointed with a loss, but thrilled with the two seed. Hoping that Buc Nation comes over to support us on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. We’re ready to put it behind us and just be ready to go when it matters for the tournament. Excited about it, but don’t want to downplay the fact that we lost because there’s a lot to learn. There will be a time and a place to address those kind of things, but right now we have to move forward and that’s what we’re doing. We’re getting ready for Asheville.”
