UTC Men Host Hiwassee Thursday

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
The Chattanooga Mocs finally get to debut in the McKenzie Arena. They welcome Hiwassee at 7 p.m., looking to rebound from an 0-2 start.
While the 0-2 start is less than ideal, the squad showed significant fight in a loss to 2017 CBI Champion Wyoming in the opener last Friday. Cross-country travel and Conference USA strong-men UAB exposed the youthful Mocs Monday night.
But that’s in the rear-view mirror. Whether 0-2 or 2-0, the task is the same each time out for Coach Lamont Paris’ squad.

“The mantra remains the same all year,” he said. “We have to grow. We need to keep improving and getting better every time out. You have to recognize what you’ve done and they mistakes you’ve made to see the areas you have to focus on most.
“Excited to get back here and play in McKenzie.”
The contest is the first of four straight in the Roundhouse’s friendly confines. Redshirt freshman guard David Jean-Baptiste leads the Mocs averaging 11.0 points per game. Freshman post James Lewis, Jr., adds 10.5 points per contest.

Pollution For Profit?

If your city council votes to reduce the storm water regulations – that is the result we can expect. Special interest homebuilders profit, but citizens pay.  More sediment pollution and paid for with ... (click for more)
