ETSU, Owls meet for 17th time tonight at KSU
The ETSU women's basketball team will continue its late-season stretch of road contests with a trip to the state of Georgia to first take on the Kennesaw State Owls on Thursday at 7 p.m. inside the KSU Convocation Center.
Beginning a stretch of five of their next seven games on the road, the Buccaneers fell, 69-60, to the USC Upstate Spartans on Feb. 15, inside the Hodge Center.
The Blue & Gold came out energized with a 10-2 run to begin the game, holding a lead throughout, and staved off a Spartans' comeback to take a 27-22 lead into halftime.
To open the second period, ETSU continued its momentum before Upstate went on a 10-4 surge to pull within two points with 13:48 left to play.
The Bucs then answered to take a firmer hold onto the lead, but the Spartans responded with another burst to tie things up at 48 with seven minutes to go.
Both teams traded the lead over the next few minutes before Upstate went on an 8-0 run over the final two minutes of the contest to take control and down the Blue & Gold, 69-60.
ETSU (7-16, 3-9) and Kennesaw State (6-18, 4-9) will square off Thursday in the 17th all-time meeting between the two schools a series that ETSU dominates, 15-1.
The Bucs prevailed in the last three meetings versus the Owls including the most recent matchup earlier this season on Jan. 23 when ETSU knocked off KSU, 74-68, inside the ETSU/Mountain States Health Sciences Athletics Center.
Kennesaw State's only win against the Blue & Gold took place in Kennesaw, Ga., on Feb. 4, 2012, in a 78-68 Owls' triumph.
