Mocs Fall at Troy in Mid-Week Action

The Chattanooga women’s basketball team fell 95-74 at Troy Wednesday afternoon in non-conference action at Troy Arena. UTC falls to 0-2 on the year and the Trojans improved to 3-1 overall.

The Mocs shot 35.5 percent for the game and were 23-of-41 from the free throw line. Amaria Pugh led Chattanooga with 16 points and nine rebounds. Ruona Uwusiaba and Eboni Williams added 10 points each. Sigrun Olafsdottir dished out three assists and Bria Dial had three steals and eight rebounds.

In the first quarter UTC shot 46.7 percent (7-of-15) and the fourth was even better at 9-of-16 (56.3%) from the field and 11-of-14 from the free throw line. It was the middle two periods where the struggles occurred. The Mocs were a combined 6-of-31 from the field and 9-of-23 from the line.

“I’m disappointed with the inconsistency,” head coach Katie Burrows said. “Every time we would do something well, we would do something bone-headed. It’s just so inconsistent right now and we have to figure out a way to become a more consistent team.”
