The Georgia Southern Eagles take the hardwood with the Chattanooga Mocs at McKenzie Arena.
The past month of the conference schedule has not been kind to Georgia Southern who have gone 3-7 in this stretch. Neither end of the floor has been on the same page with that trend continuing in an 88-73 defeat at the hands of visiting Davidson. The Eagles fell behind by 13 at the break and never recovered with the Wildcats 55% shooting outlasting the Eagles 51% because of eight more looks that were turned on to baskets. Delani Hewitt shouldered the scoring with 32 points and eight pulls with Brian Holmes and Tre Bussey combining for 21 while Curtis Diamond chipped in with nine points.

Chattanooga is hanging tough in the SoCon at 10-2 which is just a single game behind Davidson for the conference lead. The issue this team faces is there are four games remaining in the regular season so they have to win out and hope somebody can knock off the Wildcats. The Mocs have been riding their high powered offense to success with that trend standing out in an 83-73 victory over visiting Western Carolina. Neither team shot the ball well with Chatt holding a 42%-38% edge but a 25-17 advantage at the stripe was enough to get the win. Zaccheus Mason led all scorers with 23 points and eight rebounds while Gee McGhee added 16 points and 15 boards. Casey Jones followed with 14 points while the combo of Ronrico White and Martynas Bareikas netted 21 points.
This is a nust win game for Chattanooga who are one behind Davidson and one ahead of Wofford. It's also a dangerous spread which seems to be right on as well so I'll go with the solid home team...
