Mocs Begin Three-Game Homestand Wednesday

Monday, January 22, 2018

The Chattanooga Mocs return to McKenzie Arena this week opening a three-game homestand Wednesday night against Samford. The Mocs come home after a three-game road swing that provides significant optimism despite heart-breaking finishes.

Chattanooga dropped all three games of the trip. It started with an overtime loss at The Citadel and was followed two nights later again in extra time at Mercer. Wofford completed the trifecta coming back to nip the Mocs in the final minute.

The Mocs departed Chattanooga as banged up as they’d been all season.

Just seven student-athletes made it on the court in Charleston and Macon. Junior Makinde London and freshman James Lewis, Jr., returned at Wofford and were welcome additions making it seven squad members who were on the roster on October 1.

Nat Dixon leads the way at 14.2 points per game. His 16.6 scoring average in Southern Conference games ranks fifth. Dixon, Rodney Chatman and Makale Foreman are the only Mocs to start every game, while David Jean-Baptiste joins the trio playing in all 20 contests.

Chatman’s certainly making his point over the last trio of contests. He’s the FIRST Moc to record eight or more assists in three straight Southern Conference matchups tallying eight at The Citadel and Mercer before dishing out nine last Saturday at Wofford.

Wednesday’s 7 p.m., tipoff features Hometown Heroes Night. All active military, veterans, police, fire and first responders receive a FREE general admission ticket to the game with a valid service ID.

The Zooperstars come to McKenzie Arena for Saturday’s matchup with VMI. The group performs at halftime of both games that day with the ladies hosting Mercer at 2 p.m.

UNCG’s visit on Monday features a t-shirt giveaway celebrating alum Terrell Owens. Owens, who played basketball as well as football for the Mocs, is a finalist for the NFL Hall of Fame.

Use Purse Building For Chattanooga Museum Of History And Industry

I was caught off-guard and pleasantly stoked by Eric Atkins' editorial on Chattanoogan.com last week suggesting that one of the soon-to-be surplused city buildings could be turned into a history museum.   I didn't think anyone other than myself that I didn't know cared, or at least would turn their thoughts into the topic of an editorial.  I believe that most of the ...
