Feb. 3, 2004
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's men's basketball team hosts the College of Charleston Saturday, Feb. 21, as part of the ESPN Bracket Buster.
The game will be broadcast live on ESPN2 at 4 p.m., the first-ever nationally televised game from University Arena. Only 10 of the 46 teams participating earned spots in the five national broadcasts.
The College of Charleston is a member of the Southern Conference and owns an overall record of 15-3, 7-1 in the league, and has a Rating Percentage Index of 75. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools in men's basketball.

Also on Feb. 21, the WMU women's basketball team hosts Ohio and the hockey team entertains Ohio State. Scheduled starting times for both of those games are expected to be adjusted
