JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 6, 2006) -- The ETSU men's basketball team is set to hit the highway for its first critical Atlantic Sun Conference road swing of the season starting Saturday with a matchup against conference-leading Campbell. Game time in Buies Creek, N.C., is scheduled for 1 p.m.

The Bucs are fresh off a 63-61 win Wednesday over Florida Atlantic, a team which entered Memorial Center previously undefeated in A-Sun action. With a three-game winning streak now in hand, ETSU will look to maintain its recent momentum and continue to battle back into the league race.

ETSU (4-6 overall, 1-2 A-Sun) will face three of the top teams in the league during the swing, meeting Campbell Saturday, followed by Gardner-Webb (Jan. 9) and Kennesaw State (Jan. 12).
