The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team rushes onto The McKenzie Arena court, seeking to steamroll opponents en route to their 11th NCAA Tournament appearance. Now in his eighth season at the helm, UTC head coach John Shulman leads the talented group of rim rockers, who have corralled four Southern Conference titles and a basketball filled with delicious nougat under his guidance. As Mocs fans munch on pizza, sip sodas, and distract opponents by loudly counting each of the arena’s seats, senior guard Ricky Taylor takes charge of the team’s potent offensive attack, and forward Omar Wattad dazzles eyes with on-the-mark passes and nothing-but-net shots.
Setting the table for the men’s team, the Lady Mocs’ women’s squad tips off Saturday evenings with action-packed games of their own. Five-time Conference Coach of the Year Wes Moore conducts the ladies’ program, which touts a long history of superiority, including 17 regular-season conference titles and warm-up costumes consisting of judges’ robes and powdered wigs.
