UTC Hoops Hosts Blue and Gold Scrimmage

Tuesday, October 12, 2021
The wait is nearly over. Fans will be able to get a sneak peek of the Chattanooga Mocs men's basketball program next Thursday, October 21 at 7:00 p.m. ET as the team will host a "Blue & Gold" scrimmage inside McKenzie Arena.
 
The inter-squad scrimmage allows fans to catch a glimpse of the roster and start building excitement heading into the highly-anticipated 2021-22 season. The format will be treated to nearly reflect a "normal" game and will provide flashes for what's to come.
 
As head coach Lamont Paris stated earlier in the offseason, this is a great group of guys who ask and deserve support from Chattanoogans this season.
 
"I want to lay out a challenge to our community to come out and support this team," coach proclaimed.
"We have incredible young men ... they're great kids and they're really, really good."
 
"This is the year to do it [support]. If you're in the market for watching high-level basketball with great kids that are going to win, come out and support your Mocs basketball team."

2021-22 season tickets are available for purchase starting at under $100 for lower level seating! Get yours today by clicking HERE or by calling the McKenzie Arena box office at (423) 266-MOCS. Box office hours inside McKenzie Arena run Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET.
