let the excuses begain

Saffore illness hampers Mocs

John Shulman knew he wouldn't have Chris Early or Sam Watson available for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's basketball game Thursday night at Western Carolina.

That left him with four post players.

It may be down to three.

Mocs center Jeremy Saffore has been quarantined for at least 48 hours with a strain of the flu that escaped preseason shots.

"We leave tomorrow," Shulman said Tuesday. "That's a problem. We were going to bring Chris up for the game anyway, and hopefully we'll be able to bring Jeremy too.
