Two Home UTC Basketball Games To Be Aired On ESPNU

Monday, October 18, 2021
The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team will play in front of a nationally televised audience twice inside McKenzie Arena this season with both airing on ESPNU, the Southern Conference league office announced Monday morning. 

Chattanooga’s first bout on ESPNU will come in the SoCon opener against rival ETSU on December 30 (originally 12/29) at 7PM ET. The second is slated for February 5 against Mercer with a tip-off time of Noon ET. 

In all, the SoCon will have five regular-season men’s basketball games nationally televised on the ESPN family of networks.   

“We are anticipating that this season will have the most nationally televised men’s basketball games in Southern Conference history,” SoCon Commissioner Jim Schaus said.
“It is a reflection of our success that ranked us ninth in the RPI and 10th in the NCAA NET among all Division I conferences last year.
 
“We treasure our partnership with ESPN. They are fantastic to work with and are making a difference in building our conference brand nationally.”
