UTC Cagers Falls To Elon 85-61

Z. Mason has Double-Double

Friday, January 25, 2013
ELON, N.C. --- The Chattanooga Mocs (8-12/3-4) could not withstand a second-half three-point barrage from Jack Isenbarger who led Elon (12-7/5-2) to an 85-61 home win Thursday night. Isenbarger scored 18 of his game-high 23 hitting six treys after intermission.

Mason (Nashville, Tenn.) posted his second double-double in three games with 14 points and a career-high-tying 13 rebounds. Gee McGhee (Baton Rouge, La.) led the Mocs with 15 points, as Eric Robertson (Huntsville, Ala.) came off the bench for a career-high 11.

Isenbarger led all scorers with 23, making seven-of-13 from three-point range. Lucas Troutman chipped in 18 points and a team-best eight boards. Ryley Beaumont and Tanner Samson added 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Mason cut the Elon lead to 45-38 with a three-pointer at 16:48 in the second half. The Mocs missed two free throws 35 seconds later which set up Isenbarger’s heroics.

Isenbarger and the Phoenix broke the game open during a 3:36 stretch hitting six consecutive three-pointers. Five came from Isenbarger whose last made it 63-40 Elon with 12:48 to play. UTC was not able to mount a significant run from that point on.

As hot as the Phoenix were, Chattanooga was cold. The Mocs managed just 30.6 percent shooting for the game, 26.5 percent in the second half. That included a 12-for-42 (28.6%) night inside the arc. Elon shot 48.5 percent for the game, 40.6 percent (13-32) from three-point range.

After UTC opened the game scoring the first five points, Elon went on a 9-0 run capped by Beaumont’s basket with 16:48 left in the half. The Phoenix led by as many as 12 on Troutman’s three-point play with 56 seconds left until the break. Mason’s dogged efforts on the offensive boards sent the Mocs into the locker room down 10, 38-28.

Chattanooga remains in North Carolina for a Sunday tip at UNCG.

When The City Was Silent - And Response

I don't know how to say this without getting my head handed back to me on a platter as is often the usual case. But at least I no longer receive the hateful (even threatening) emails and insults I became accustomed to. So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)
