The Chattanooga Mocs go on the road to face the Citadel Bulldogs at McAlister Field House.
Chattanooga has been playing as well as they have thus far with three consecutive victories following a 72-63 decision at Furman. It wasn't surprising the Mocs put up some points but the strong defensive stand was because this team doesn't defend well. The Paladins won the shooting battle 44%-38% but used 18 offensive boards to total eleven more looks to combine with a few more makes at the line to win. Zaccheus Mason led the offense with 20 points and 13 rebounds with Ronrico Wright and Carey Jones adding 13 points each with Jones posting another 13 boards while Gee McGhee chipped in eleven points.

With the conference slate about to get hot and heavy Citadel is in need of righting the ship which might be easier said then done with the team having dropped seven of eight. The Bulldogs need help at both ends of the floor and that trend continued in a 76-59 loss at Radford with a 15 point deficit at the half being too much to over come. The Highlanders hit at almost 47% from the floor with the Bulldogs countering with 38% which equated to ten more baskets for the home team. Matt Van Scyoc leading the offense with 17 points and five yanks with Quinton Marshall tossing in ten followed by the combo of Tom Koopman and Brian White Brian White combining for 17 points.
The Mocs are awful on the road and the Citadel has only won at home so I'm splitting hairs with an axe here...
