The Chattanooga Mocs and the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles meet in college basketball action from the Hooper Eblen Center on Wednesday night.
The Chattanooga Mocs will be looking to build on their 69-66 win over Murray State last time out. Jake Stephens leads the Mocs in scoring and rebounding with 19.2 PPG and 9 RPG while Jamal Johnson has 11.2 PPG with 3.8 RPG. Demetrius Davis has 10.5 PPG with 4.5 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Chattanooga up to this point in the season while Dalvin White has a team-high 3.3 APG to lead the Mocs in the assist category this season. As a team, Chattanooga is averaging 78.7 PPG on 46.9% shooting from the field, 37.5% from behind the arc and 71.3% from the foul line this season.
The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles will try to bounce back from an 85-77 OT loss to Northern Kentucky in their last game. Jaylen Sebree leads the Golden Eagles in scoring and rebounding with 12.4 PPG along with 7 RPG while Brett Thompson has 12.2 PPG with 3.7 RPG and a team-high 4 APG to lead Tennessee Tech in assists this season. Erik Oliver has 11.1 PPG and Ty Perry has 10.9 PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Tennessee Tech this season. As a team, Tennessee Tech is averaging 72.1 PPG on 42.8% shooting from the field, 35.9% from behind the arc and 68.5% from the foul line this season.
Chattanooga is 35-17 ATS in their last 52 road games and 22-6-1 ATS in their last 29 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Tennessee Tech is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 Wednesday games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall
I get the case to be made for the Golden Eagles as a home underdog, but the thing about Chattanooga is that all of their losses are actually respectable. The Mocs are simply the better team in this matchup in my opinion, and I just think that the Mocs pull away over the course of the second half to get themselves a win and cover in this one.
