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.

Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.” This ruling overturned the infamous Plessy v. Ferguson ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Same Family Tree

When it was learned the UnifiEd Foundation was a left-wing crowd of political organizers rather than a group with the sole intent of bettering public education in Hamilton County, several other liberal groups fell under scrutiny and it is uncanny how many of the same few people are intertwined in a county of 360,000 people. Or, as one critic succinctly said, “They are all from ... (click for more)
