Late surge lifts Lady Mocs to ninth straight win

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Kayla Christopher's big second half sparked the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's strong finish in a 60-46 home win over Samford Wednesday night at McKenzie Arena.

The win was the ninth in a row for the Lady Mocs (19-3, 12-1 in SoCon), who open up a one game lead over idle Davidson (13-8, 10-1) in the league standings.

Christopher scored all of her game-high 18 points in the second half, helping UTC close the game on an 18-6 run over the final 9:49. The senior guard took just one shot in the first half as Chattanooga struggled offensively, heading into the half down 25-22.

Tatianna Jackson came off the bench to add ten points, and Taylor Hall chipped in four points and ten rebounds.

UTC's power post duo of Ashlen Dewart and Faith Dupree struggled most of the night, combining for just 12 points on 5-of-21 shooting from the floor.

But the Lady Mocs did enough on the defensive end to get the win, holding Samford to just 29.3-percent shooting as a team.
