Saturday, February 01, 2003

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Tiffany Patton scored a career-high 20 points as part of her first career double-double, as the Lady Mocs dropped Southern Conference foe East Tennessee State 90-72 Saturday night. Patton had 16 points in the first half as Chattanooga (16-3 overall, 9-1 SoCon) had its best shooting half of the season (24-for-37, 64.9 percent). The Lady Mocs led by as much as 26 points in the first half and took a 58-33 leading at intermission. The Lady Mocs used an 11-0 spurt to take the game from a 17-13 lead to 28-13 at the 11:05 mark. It never got below double digits the rest of the way and Katasha Brown's second 3-pointer of the first half put UTC up 54-28 with 1:35 left in the half. ETSU (6-13, 3-7) made a second-half push as Lauren Trantham (Asheville, N.C.) scored 10 of her team-high 14 points. The Bucs pulled within 72-58 on Tiffani Mayes' (Sumter, S.C.) bucket with 7:30 left, but Chattanooga went on a 10-2 spurt to thwart the rally. "I was very pleased with the first half," Moore said. "We stressed getting the ball inside and Tiffany had a great half because of that. She finished pretty well tonight. In the second half, I was disappointed with our team defensive effort. We've got to put 40 minutes together." Patton finished with a season-high 10 rebounds to lead UTC's domination on the glass 45-35. Brown finished with 15 points, her best outing since 18 points in the season-opener vs. Georgia. Miranda Warfield chipped in 10 points and Shamya Sermons nine. Angela Hunter tied a career high with six assists and Heather McDivitt dished out five. ETSU had a quartet of double-digit scorers led by Trantham. Adrienne Walker (Augusta, Ga.) had 13 points (11 in the first half) and Kiya Verdell (Hartwell, Ga.) scored 13, while Mayes tossed in 11. Verdell dished out seven assists and tied a career high with six steals.
