JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 27, 2006) -- Fresh off a convincing win over Atlantic Sun Conference frontrunner Kennesaw State, the ETSU men's basketball team will look to continue its climb up the conference standings Saturday as the Buccaneers take at Stetson at 4 p.m. inside Memorial Center.

The Bucs (11-7, 8-3) are now just one-game back of both Kennesaw State and Lipscomb following Florida Atlantic's loss to Belmont Friday night. The Bucs will be without the services of senior guard Ben Rhoda (Dayton, Ohio) against the Hatters, as Rhoda will be serving a one-game suspension for being ejected from Wednesday's game against KSU.

Saturday will also include a pair of special promotions at the game, as the first 1,800 fans will receive a free Tim Smith miniature bobblehead, and Newschannel 11 will be in the Mini-Dome taping two-minute audition tapes for Survivor want-to-bes beginning at 3 p.m.
