What you need to know about Chattanooga
It was close, but the Mocs ultimately beat Tennessee State by a final score of 66-63 last week. The Mocs have now won three games in a row by three points, so they’re schooled in tough battles and the opportunity to begin their conference schedule against one of the best teams in the league with a win would solidify them as potential contenders.
Wright State transfer Malachi Smith is averaging 17.1 points, 11.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists as a combo guard, but the Mocs will be without David Jean-Baptiste (18.0 ppg) after he entered the transfer portal earlier this month. Forward Stefan Kenic is a Cleveland State transfer who is averaging 13.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game and he’ll continue to be a big part of the Chattanooga game plan on Wednesday.
