Mocs At Furman Thursday, Home Saturday

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
The Chattanooga Mocs have four regular season games remaining. Three come on the road starting Thursday at Wofford before a quick turnaround for Senior Day in McKenzie Arena Saturday night with a visit from Wofford.

But it starts Thursday in Greenville. The Paladins are marketing it as “The Office” night with the first fans named Michael, Dwight, Jim, Pam or Andy getting free admission. If you’re named Toby, you pay double. But we digress.

The Mocs are 3-7 since the last matchup with Furman on January 10.
Seven of those 10 games were one possession in the final minute with six coming down to the final play in regulation.

Rodney Chatman has been on quite a run over the last five games with three of his five 20-point efforts this season over that stretch. He’s averaged 19.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.0 blocks and 2.4 steals per contest over the stretch shooting 53.7 percent (29-54) from the field, 43.5 percent (10-23) from 3pt range and 90.6 percent (29-32) at the charity stripe.

UTC returns to the Roundhouse Saturday for the home finale against Wofford. It’s Senior Day as the squad honors Joshua Phillips. Phillips has given the Mocs quite a lift since joining the team Thanksgiving week. Especially so considering the plethora of injuries in the post.

Tipoff Thursday is at 7 p.m., from Greenville airing on ESPN3/WatchESPN. Saturday’s game is a double date with the Terriers. The women square off at 2 p.m., with the men meeting at 5 p.m.

The Sad Condition Of Historic Brown's Ferry Tavern
