Cougars Renew Old Rivalry With East Tennessee State

6 Dec

The College of Charleston men’s basketball team (6-3, 2-0) returns to the remaining balance of its non-conference slate welcoming defending Atlantic Sun Conference champion and 2010 NCAA Tournament participant East Tennessee State (3-3, 0-1) on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at Carolina First Arena. Tipoff between the Cougars and Buccaneers is set for 7 p.m. (ET). CofC will renew an old Southern Conference rivalry for the second year in a row versus the Bucs, who moved to the A-Sun during the 2005-06 season and had been an annual fixture at the top of the North Division. The Cougars will look to avenge a 77-71 road loss at ETSU a year ago and have averaged 87.0 points over their last two games against Davidson (82-73) on Dec. 2 and Georgia Southern (92-84) on Dec. 4. They have also shot better than 50 percent in their last two outings and are winners of their last four out of five contests of the season. CofC will close out a tough three-game home stretch in the course of six days and will enjoy a bye week ahead to study and prepare for final exams at The College.
