Mocs Host Wofford Wednesday Night In SoCon Matchup

  • Tuesday, February 20, 2024
The Chattanooga Mocs men's basketball returns to its home floor for a key Wednesday night Southern Conference matchup against the Wofford Terriers inside McKenzie Arena. Tip-off is set for 7:02 p.m. on ESPN+.

It's "Bucket Hat Night" with the FIRST 500 FANS receiving a FREE Mocs bucket hat. To purchase tickets, please visit the link here or call the McKenzie Arena Box Office at 423-266-6627 (MOCS) between business hours of 10 a.m.
– 5 p.m. ET, M-F. All ticket windows will open 90 minutes before tip-off on game day.
 
Chattanooga (18-9, 10-4 SoCon) enters the game looking to rebound from seeing its six-game SoCon road winning streak snapped with an 82-65 loss at Furman on Sunday. The Mocs currently sit in a two-way tie for second place in the league standings with UNCG, but currently carry the third-seed designation due to tiebreaking scenarios.
 
Wofford (15-12, 8-6 SoCon) arrives to the Scenic City coming off a low-scoring affair on Saturday which resulted in a 58-47 loss to UNCG on its home court. The Terriers currently sit in a tie for fifth place alongside Western Carolina in the SoCon standings and remain one game back of Furman in fourth and two back of UTC and UNCG for second/third.
