As 2012 comes to an end I thought I would post one of the more memorable wins in ETSU basketball history to help ease the pain of a difficult start to the 2012-2013 college basketball season.
In 1989 Mister Jennings and the East Tennessee State men’s basketball team crushed the Big Orange in Knoxville. ETSU beat Tennessee by the score of 83-70 for the first time in school history. The win established ETSU as the dominate college basketball team in the state of Tennessee for a 4 to 5 year stretch as wins against Memphis and Tennessee followed this game in the next few years.
Many Buc fans will recall that Thompson-Boling arena had a large following of ETSU faithful in attendance that night and they were so loud it almost felt like a home game for ETSU. Enjoy!
