Mocs Release Basketball Season, Host Select-A-Seat Party

Monday, August 4, 2014
The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball program released its 2014-15 schedule recently revealing an exciting 17-game slate in the Scenic City. Season ticket renewals closed and now new orders are being taken. Thursday, August 7, the athletics department is hosting a Select-A-Seat Party to give each new season ticket holder the option to see where open tickets are located.

“We are very excited about where our basketball program is headed,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics David Blackburn stated. “Will Wade with his staff and student-athletes took a strong step forward last season. I, for one, cannot wait to see what lies ahead.”

Programs like Georgia and UAB come to town along with a strong Southern Conference ledger with the additions of East Tennessee State, Mercer and VMI. Five of the 10 SoCon teams made the postseason a season ago as the Bucs (CIT), Bears (NCAA) and Keydets (CIT) joined Wofford (NCAA) and the Mocs (CIT). Coastal Carolina (Big South) and Robert Morris (Northeast) are conference champions involved in the Battle 4 Atlantis four-team tourney here Thanksgiving week.

The Select-A-Seat Party is open to the public with patrons getting to select their season tickets from 5-7 p.m. All open seats after the event are available online at the link above or by calling the ticket office at (423) 266-MOCS (6627) beginning at 10 a.m., Friday, August 8.

There are two pricing levels for lower level seating at McKenzie Arena. The padded, center sections on both sides of the court are $185 plus a required donation to the Mocs Club. Corner and end zone lower level seats, along with the gold circle, are $160. There is a $25 discount for alumni. Mocs Club and ticket office employees will be on hand to answer any questions.
