Cats win at Chattanooga
This win halts a two conference game skid for the Cats, having lost to Elon at home, and Samford on the road.
Dispute the very physical play of the home-standing Mocs, Chattanooga was called for only 18 personal fouls the entire game (which includes 3 personal fouls in the last 56 seconds) while the visiting Cats were charged with a grand total of 27, sending the Mocs to the charity line for 36 attempts, where they picked up 25 points. To over come those obstacles the Cats shot 53.4% (31-58) from the floor, which included 12 of 22 three-pointers.
The Catamounts had four players in double figures, led by Trey Sumler with 25 points, 4 rebounds, 4 steals, and 12 assists; Tom Tankelewicz with 21 points, hitting 7 of 9 three-pointers; Brandon Boggs with 19 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists; and Tawaski King with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 1 steal. The final starter, James Sinclair, put up only 2 points, but he led the team in rebounding with 10, he also had 3 assists and 2 steals.
The larger Mocs won the rebounding battle, pulling down 39, of which 16 were offensive rebounds, while the Cats had 31 rebounds with only 6 offensive rebounds.
The Cats return home for a Thursday meeting of the south division leading Davidson Wildcats for their first meeting since last season's conference championship game in Asheville.
