ETSU, Mercer face off in the Dome Friday
Facing its toughest challenge of the Atlantic Sun Conference schedule so far, the ETSU men's basketball team will host first-place Mercer Friday night inside the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center.
The game - which was originally scheduled for Thursday night, but was moved due to inclement weather and travel delays - will tip at 7 p.m., and will be available on both the Buccaneer Sports Network radio affiliates and on live video stream at ASun.TV.
The Buccaneers (11-10 overall, 4-4 in A-Sun play) can move into third place in the league standings with a victory, but Mercer (17-5, 8-1) has been the class of the conference so far this season.
In an effort to create the best home court advantage possible for the Bucs, ETSU men's basketball coach Murry Bartow and the athletic department's staff are offering multiple promotions for the game. These offers include free pizza beginning at 6:30 p.m. for all students, and the first 500 students at the game will also receive a free ETSU basketball t-shirt. In addition, Wolf Ridge Resort will be giving away free lift tickets during the game to fans in attendance.
Fans are also encouraged to bring their children to games this year to take advantage of the special Sweet Frogs $5 kids' ticket during men's basketball games.
Also, ETSU will host Kennesaw State on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. In addition, the home game with USC Upstate originally scheduled for Monday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m., has been postponed, and will be rescheduled at a later date.
Season and reserved seat tickets already purchased for these games will be honored at the door.
