Mocs Prepare For UT-Martin Saturday

Thursday, November 30, 2017

The Chattanooga Mocs welcome sister school UT Martin Saturday night before hitting the road to former arch-rival Marshall the following Tuesday. The busy stretch is nothing new for the Mocs.
The team opened the season with seven games in 19 days. That’s one every 2.6 nights which makes the three-day swing seem a little easier despite the long bus ride to Huntington.
It’s a sign of the times. After such a compressed window of games, the squad has 22 days between next six contests leading into the holiday break.
UTC has gotten a lift from the football squad. Senior outside linebacker Joshua Phillips is now senior center Joshua Phillips with an immediate impact with a little more than a week on the hardwood including practices.
He’s averaging 13.5 points and 5.0 boards in 21.0 minutes per contest. He’s 13 of 16 (81.3%) from the field including making all six attempts at Akron Tuesday night.
According to Nat Dixon, a complete effort is the focus after the narrow loss at Akron earlier in the week.
"We started out the first half sluggish” noted the junior from Panama City, Fla. “We need to go back to the drawing board and get that corrected. We need to put 40 minutes together and play like we did in the second half for the entire game. I don’t think we started out well tonight and it cost us."
