CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Alphonso Pugh scored 23 points and two
Chattanooga teammates had double-doubles in the Mocs 93-59 victory
over East Tennessee State on Saturday.
The Mocs opened the game with a 9-0 run, and led 45-30 at
Tim Smith, who finished with 16 points, hit a 3-pointer for the
Bucs with 18:37 left to make it 47-33.
But Chattanooga answered with a 14-4 run capped by a jumper by
Pugh. The Mocs extend their lead to as many as 35 in the second
half as they outrebounded the Bucs 50-22.
The two squads have met in the Southern Conference tournament
finals each of the last two years, but ETSU has had a disappointing
season after back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances.
