The game

series at a glance
Saturday will be the sixth-ever meeting between the Racers and the Mocs, with Chattanooga leading 3-2. Last season, Murray State picked up its second win over the Mocs last season in Chattanooga, 78-55. Saturday is Chattanooga’s first visit to the CFSB Center, having last played at Murray in 1987.

Exploring the Mocs
Chattanooga defeated Tennessee State 60-31 at home on Wednesday to move up to 2-2 in the season.

In four games, Chattanooga is averaging 58.0 points per game on 41.0 percent shooting while their opponents are averaging 46.0 points per game on 30.4 percent shooting.

Yazz Wazeerud-Din and Abbey Cornelius currently lead the Mocs with 18.5 and 12.3 points per game, respectively. On the boards, Cornelius leads the way, followed by Addie Thompson at 6.8 and Raven Thompson at 6.5

A win would be…
A win on Saturday would keep the Racers undefeated at home this season, a place they have protected well for the past three seasons. Murray State is currently 20-7 at CFSB Center with a 74.1 win ratio since the start of the 2020-21 season.

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky…
Katelyn Young missed her first free throw on Sunday at Purdue, seemingly ending her 34 consecutive free throw streak. However, the Boilermakers were accused of a lane violation that allowed Young to execute the ensuing free throw and two more to take the streak to 37.

call for support
Through two games, Murray State’s bench has improved greatly this season, averaging 22.5 points per game compared to just 12.4 last season.
