Lakelyn Bouldin pulled off her first career double double and played every minute in leading Chattanooga past Wofford, 89-82, on Thursday at McKenzie Arena.

The Mocs take the SoCon lead with a 2-0 record, knocking the Terriers from that perch. Wofford had won their first two conference games.

Bouldin, the junior from Van Buren County, scored 26 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. Twelve of her points came in the first quarter.

She had two clutch in-close baskets in the final minute as the Mocs finally got some breathing room. The lead had been just 83-82 with a minute and a half left. At one point as time wound down, Wofford had the opportunity to take the lead.

Guard Brooke Burns had a shot go in high off the background near the end and she connected on two free throws in the closing seconds. She had 16 points and seven assists.

The Mocs, who improve to 7-10 overall, led 43-39 at halftime.

Wofford, which is now 10-8 on the season, pulled ahead 7-2 before UTC followed with 12 unanswered points. UTC was up 23-16 at the end of the first quarter.

Terrier standout Chloe Wanink, who was injured much of last season, helped pull Wofford back close, then Chattanooga freshman Eboni Williams, from Hoover, Ala., struck for a 3-pointer at the first quarter buzzer.

Burns hit a jumper, then followed quickly with a 3-pointer. Six of her assists came in the first half. A Williams steal of a lazy Wofford pass led to a layup and a 36-32 Chattanooga lead.

Mya Long, former Baylor ace, contributed with a bucket and guard Molly Melton, recovering from an injury, hit a late three from the corner. as the first half closed out.

Williams finished with 19, while Rochelle Lee had 8 and Bria Dial 7. Melton finished with 4. UTC pulled down a season-high 47 rebounds and only had 10 turnovers.

Chattanooga holds a 49-2 record against Wofford since 1996. 

UTC has not lost a regular season game to the Terriers in that stretch, but went down to Wofford twice in the conference tournament.

Good Sports Bar News

Just had dinner Tuesday night at Jonathan's Grille location in Hendersonville, Tn. When in Murfreesboro or Nashville, it's one of my favs. Just a great sports bar concept and menu.

As I stood in the checkout line of the Walmart in Tiftonia this week, my newest friend named Harold asked me, “What’s the difference between an outlaw and an in-law.
