SoCon bracket now set for top-seeded Lady Mocs

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's basketball got to kick its feet up for a few extra days while the rest of the Southern Conference wrapped up the regular season.

The Lady Mocs, who wrapped up the SoCon Tournament's top seed last week, played their final regular season game Saturday before waiting 48 hours for the bracket to be officially set after the conclusion of five games on Monday night.

UTC was the only SoCon team with the night off.

Chattanooga can now officially start preparing for a rematch with either Georgia Southern or Western Carolina, who square off Friday at 11:30 a.m. ET in Asheville. The winner advances to face the Lady Mocs at noon in Saturday's quarterfinals at UNC-Asheville's Kimmel Arena.

UTC (26-3, 19-1 in SoCon) crushed both during the regular season, winning two games against the Eagles by a combined 49 points and two against the Catamounts by 79.

Davidson earned the second-seed with a 16-4 league mark, followed by Elon, Appalachian State and College of Charleston. The top five teams all get a bye through Friday's first round.

Chattanooga will be going for its ninth SoCon Tournament title, but first since 2010. The Lady Mocs, who are currently riding a 16-game winning streak, have lost in the semifinals the past two years.
