Honor Huff leads the Mocs in assists with 15.6 PPG and 2.9 APG while Trey Bonham has 18 PPG with 4.9 RPG and 2.4 APG in 9 games so far this season. Jan Zidek has 11.3 PPG with 3.1 RPG while Sam Alexis has 11.3 PPG with a team-high 9.8 RPG to lead the Mocs on the glass and to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Chattanooga so far this year.

East Tennessee State Team Preview

The East Tennessee State Buccaneers come into this one looking to snap a four-game losing streak after a 75-73 loss at the hands of Wofford last time out. Jaden Seymour leads the Buccaneers in scoring with 15 PPG along with 6.3 RPG while Ebby Asamoah has 14.8 PPG with 4.1 RPG. Quimari Peterson has 14.1 PPG with 4.2 RPG and a team-high 3.7 APG to lead the Buccaneers in assists and to round out the group of double-digit scorers for ETSU up to this point in the year.

Chattanooga vs. East Tennessee State Prediction

I’m backing Chattanooga here. It’s just so hard to back the Buccaneers amidst their current struggles with such a small number on the other side. The Mocs have already shown they can win on the road in conference play, and I think they do enough to get the win and cover here.
