Chattanooga men's basketball coach Will Wade wants a win tonight against Elon at 7 p.m. in McKenzie Arena
He also wants to see 5,000 fans fill the blue and gold sections to help be that 6th man for the Mocs who are 12-10 overall and undefeated (6-0) in Southern Conference play.
In an important SoCon game, the Phoenix (10-9, 3-1) have four players averaging
in double digits led by Lucas Troutman at 16.2 points per game. Troutman also
leads the rebounding effort (6.3 rpg). Sebastian Koch (13.3), Ryley Beaumont
(10.4) and Tanner Samson (10.3) are the other three.
The Phoenix lead the SoCon
in five team categories: Field Goal Pct. (47.6), 3pt Pct. (39.3), Free Throw
Pct. (73.0), 3pt made per game (8.6) and assist/turnover ratio (1.1). Koch paces
the league in 3pt made per game (3.0)
The Mocs counter with four players scoring in double figures - Z Mason (18.8 ppg; 9.6 rbpg), Ronrico White (12.1 ppg), Casey Jones (11.4 ppg) and Gee McGhee (10.5 ppg).
Mason is on an epic run with eight straight multi-block games. The 36 (4.5 per game) over that span is one less than the 37 he entered the season with.
Mason’s 36 blocks over his last eight games alone would rank tied for eighth-best in a season in the school records. He now has 91 in his career which is fifth all-time, seven behind Nicchaeus Doaks (2006-09).
UTC leads the SoCon in scoring
(78.3), scoring margin (+3.7), rebounds (37.3) and offensive rebound pct
