Game #29: ETSU

For the final regular-season game of the season, the Catamounts travel to Johnson City on Saturday to face the current #1 team in the SoCon. The Bucs have sewn up at least a share of this year's SoCon title, and the number one seed in the upcoming tournament.  The only thing standing in the way of an outright title for the Bucs is a win over the Catamounts.
