Will update with trends when / if they’re released.
The Chattanooga Mocs couldn't do anything offensively in their season opener, and that's bad news when going up against a UAB team that plays really well at home and is coming off a feel good performance in where it got whatever it wanted offensively. UAB will have the best player on the court in Cokley, and this is an experienced team that should be able to flex its muscle. Asking the UAB Blazers to win by double digits is more than reasonable.
