JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (October 29, 2005) - The ETSU Lady Bucs gave fans a sneak peek at the upcoming season Saturday afternoon as the squad split in two and competed in the annual Blue-Gold game at the Memorial Center.

 

The Blue squad topped the Gold 64-44, led by senior Candace Gibson's 17 points.  Gibson posted a double-double for the game, grabbing 11 rebounds (ten on the defensive end) to accompany her game-high point total.
