Belmont 89 - Chattanooga 73
The Chattanooga Mocs men's basketball team saw its six-game win streak snapped in an 83-79 overtime loss to in-state opponent Belmont on Sunday afternoon in front of 3,466 fans inside McKenzie Arena. Following the loss, Chattanooga falls to 8-4 overall this season as they squad faces one more non-conference opponent (Georgia, 12/21) before league action begins. Belmont improves to 7-5 overall following its second victory in as many seasons over UTC. It was a game of missed opportunities for the Mocs after struggling from the free-throw line (12-of-22, 54.5%) and suffering from 18 turnovers that led to a 17-6 disadvantage in points off turnovers. The two teams combined for 15 lead changes and eight different ties while the Bruins held the lead for 29:10.

Warren Wilson 48 -  UNCG 120
The UNC Greensboro (UNCG) men's basketball team dominated in a 120-48 record-setting victory over Warren Wilson on Sunday afternoon in Fleming Gym. UNCG made a program-best 45 field goals on the way to the highest single-game scoring output in the school's NCAA Division I history. The 120 points fell two shy of the school standard set December 12, 1983, versus Piedmont Bible College. Senior Keyshaun Langley's season-high 19 points led six Spartans in double-figure scoring. Graduate Keondre Kennedy added 16 points and a career- and game-high 13 rebounds for the Spartans, who got at least four points from each of their available 11 players.
