Chattanooga managed to go 3-3 over their first six games, taking wins over Oakland City, Covenant and Murray State. The Mocs are 5-2 in the seven games since then, falling to Belmont and Georgia in their most recent pair. 

The Mocs faced off against Georgia last Wednesday. Chattanooga had a three-point lead by halftime but ultimately lost 72-65 after a 42-32 second half. The Mocs’ Jamal Johnson led the team on 23 points and five boards. 

Over on the Citadel side, they went 3-3 over their first six games, beating Presbyterian, Morris College and New Orleans. The Bulldogs are 2-4 since then with losses to Charleston, North Carolina, Longwood and NC Central. 

In the NC Central game last Tuesday, the Bulldogs trailed 42-33 going into halftime. The Citadel got better from there with 41 points but still lost 81-74. Austin Ash led the team with his 23 points and three assists. 

PICK: I’ll probably stay with Chattanooga in this one. The Mocs are coming off a tough game versus Georgia and they’ve lost consecutive outings. That said, Chattanooga has been scoring well with 69 or more points in seven of their last eight games. As for the Bulldogs, they’ve scored 67 or more points in seven of their last eight outings so we could have a high-scoring affair here. Ultimately I like Chattanooga to pull off the cover but it should be an interesting matchup if both teams play well.
