Chattanooga Mocs Release Men’s Basketball Schedule

(gomocs.com) CHATTANOOGA—It’s here. The 2018-19 Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball schedule is now online and available on GoMocs.com at the link above. It’s a balanced ledger designed to challenge and develop a young team in a quest for a 12th NCAA DI Tournament trip.

“It’s a good mix of some really tough games…some really experienced teams…some high-level road games along with good mid-major matchups,” Coach Lamont Paris said. “There are teams outside the region as well as local and in-state as well as nearby like the trip to Georgia State.

“There are games that, with this many new guys, there are games where our guys get extended minutes. You get a feel of what the entire roster can do and how they respond in a game atmosphere.

“Overall, it’s a good schedule for us. The non-conference prepares us for a really good league. The Southern Conference is home-and-home against everybody. Not all leagues are able to do that. Over the last six years, 24 percent of the conference matchups went to the final possession or overtime.

“It’s a very competitive league.”

There are 14 home games, 15 including an exhibition vs. Lee, and 17 away from the Scenic City with nine on each side coming in SoCon play. It include matchups with the SEC, Big Ten, Conference USA, Sun Belt, OVC and Atlantic Sun Conferences.

The men’s and women’s hoops squads share five dates in the spring. Doubleheaders are set for Jan. 12, Jan. 17, Jan. 19, Jan. 31 and Feb. 2.
