Gilbert averaged 17 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, leading Chattanooga to four wins on the week. The Mocs defeated Indiana and Northwestern of the Big 10 Conference in back-to-back games.

At Indiana, Gilbert was 10-of-16 from the field for a career-high 27 points and three blocked shots. She had 17 points to lead UTC past Georgetown and 15 in the Mocs’ win over Auburn. The Pulaski, Tenn., native pulled down a season-best seven rebounds three times and dished out eight assists for the week.
Gilbert shot 56.3 percent (27-48) from the field and was 4-of-10 from the 3-point line. She was named the MVP of the “Challenge in Music City” MVP.
Chattanooga is 5-3 overall and will take on UT Martin Saturday, December 2 at 2 p.m. That game will be followed by the men’s matchup against the Skyhawks at 5:00 p.m. at the McKenzie Arena. Tickets are on sale now at the McKenzie Arena box office or online at GoMocs.com.
