UTC Women Will Play Mississippi State on Friday in the NCAA Tournament
Chattanooga-(WDEF) The UTC women’s basketball team learned on Monday night that they will play Mississippi State on Friday in the NCAA Tournament. The game will tip at 2:30pm in Starkville, and it will be televised on ESPN2. Mocs head coach Jim Foster says he really doesn’t care who his team plays because you’re going to be facing a tough opponent. Said Foster,”The bad teams are at home. There are 285 teams that are not playing in this tournament and 64 playing. So we’re happy to be in it.”
Mississippi State earned a five seed, while UTC garnered a 12 seed.
This will mark the Mocs 14th appearance in the NCAA tournament, but they have only one Big Dance victory coming in 2004 against Rutgers. Chattanooga will carry an 11-game winning streak into this year’s Big Dance.
