Mocs Travel To Lispcomb For Mid-Day Hoops Wednesday

  • Tuesday, November 28, 2023
The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team will suit up for its first road game in a 19-day span with an early Wednesday clash against in-state foe Lipscomb inside Allen Arena in Nashville, Tenn. Tip-off is set for 12 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. CT on ESPN+.

Chattanooga (5-1) enters the matchup coming off Sunday’s 72-56 wire-to-wire victory over SEMO during the final day of the Coke Zero Sugar Classic held inside McKenzie Arena. The Mocs bounced back from its first loss of the season on Friday to Evansville in overtime, a game in which UTC saw a second-half, 20-point lead evaporated down the stretch.

The sophomore duo of Sam Alexis and Honor Huff continue to pace the Chattanooga offense in the early going of the season with the latter leading the team with a 16.8 points per game average and the former totaling a team second-best 14.8 average.
Alexis is also averaging a SoCon-best 12.0 rebounds and is currently the only player in NCAA DI basketball averaging at least 14.0 points and 12.0 rebounds per game while shooting better than 67.0% (67.9%) from the field.

Lipscomb (5-3) heads into the midweek match-up winners of five of its last six with three of the five wins coming away from its home arena. The Bisons most recently defeated SoCon-member Wofford 85-78 on Sunday in Montreal, Quebec as part of the North Classic MTE event and finished the weekend with a 2-1 record, picking up an additional win over UNC Asheville (86-75) and dropping a contest to Bowling Green (82-61).
