NASHVILLE (Feb. 24, 2006) -- With a chance to still take home at least a share of the Atlantic Sun Conference regular season championship, the ETSU men's basketball team hits the road to Music City this weekend for games with Lipscomb on Friday and Belmont on Sunday.

The game at Lipscomb, scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. (EST) tip, will air regional on CSS. Meanwhile, the Bucs will take on Belmont at 4 p.m. (EST) Sunday afternoon. The Bucs, currently 12-6 in A-Sun play, trail both Lipscomb (13-5) and Belmont (13-5) by one game in the standings.

This road swing will conclude the regular season slate for the Bucs, who will return to Memorial Center for the General Shale Brick Atlantic Sun Conference Men's Basketball Championship March 2-4. For tickets, call 439-ETSU (3878).
