Sports - Chattanooga Mocs UTC
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB)-- The UTC basketball Mocs host Wofford Monday night at McKenzie Arena and with two conference wins under his belt on the young season, second year Head Coach Will Wade is already seeing a few trends in the Southern Conference.
Speaking Saturday night after the Mocs beat the Furman Paladins 72-60, Wade opined on how the SoCon has upgraded the level of play, with the notable imports of Mercer University and Virginia Military Institute.
" I think those teams have definitely added to the league and added to what we're doing," said Wade. " Obviously, East Tennessee State is one of the favorites in the league so I think top to bottom, the league has gotten better."
The Mocs play ETSU's Buccaneers Saturday at 4pm in Johnson City, after hosting Wofford Monday night at 8pm. and Western Carolina Thursday night with a 7pm tip off.
