Will Wade's goal was to have 5,000 fans in house (McKenzie Arena) Thursday night and fill the blue and gold seats to make a home court advantage for Chattanooga.
"A big thank you to our fans as just under 5,000 sounded like 7,000 ... the student turnout was great and we need more fans for Saturday night (vs. UNCG at 7 p.m.)," said coach Wade.
Gee McGhee - "we were happy to see so many fans at the game ... our fans are amazing ... it's great to have a supportive home crowd cheering you on."
Late 3: Freshman Anthanee Doyle subbed in with 58 seconds remaining, had a steal and a turnover and hit a very long 3-pointer for the Mocs last basket.
But the 3-pointer was not fluke as Doyle is now 4-7 from beyond the arc.
Mocs Win Streak: UTC is now 7-0 in the SoCon and has an overall nine-game win streak the longest since winning 11 in a row (1/6/97 - 2/6/97) for first time since.
