Led by an overall team hot hand from the field (56.3%) in the first half and five players in double figures for the game, host The College of Charleston defeated Tennessee at Chattanooga, 86-59, in a Southern Conference men's basketball game Saturday afternoon.

COC's Anthony Stitt led all players with 20 points, while Ronrico White led UTC with 10 points.

Other COC players in double figures were Willis Hall and Adjehi Baru with 13 each and Anthony Thomas and Trent Wiedeman with 11 each.

The Cougars opened the game with a 7-0 run, quickly followed by a 13-0 run to lead 20-2 at 11:43. UTC's Farad Cobb and White temporarily slowed the hosts offensive dominance with an 8-0 run to trail 20-10 at 10:26, but the visitors could get no closer. COC led by 26 (50-24) at intermission.
