Down 45-32 with 5 minutes left. It's been fairly close until a moment ago. Our defense is... non-existent. Frierson has 17 points.

50-39 with 1:00 left. Chat has a small bench today so maybe we can wear them down late...

53-41 at half. 29 of our 41 first half points came from Najdawi and Frierson.

Chattanooga made TWELVE threes in the first half and a few dunks as well...

We are letting the Mocs just stand in the corners and unabated shoot 3's at will. We have the bigger roster, with them playing 7, but the unwillingness to stop these basic three point free throws is undoing our  ability to rotate in.  Hope Dugger does something to shut that down.

Same script:  DAWGS play decent for the 1st 11 minutes (especially Frierson & Najdawi) & score 30 points. Then go cold & only score 11 points in the final 9 minutes.

 Chatty shot over 50% from 3 (11 for 20).  I thought that was "Duggarball".  Why can't we shoot 50% from 3?????? 

Believe it or not, we have a deeper bench & a bigger team up front than Chatty and still trail by 12.  Giving up too many 2nd chance points & only getting 1 shot on the offensive end.


Typical sequence for this team this season: Frankie Johnson gets a steal, drives to the basket & gets the shot blocked;  UTC gets the rebound & gets layup on the other end - 4 point swing.

78-75 in the second. Najdawi and Frierson still playing well. Chattanooga does appear to be getting tired and one of their guys just went to the locker room with what appears to be a cramp.

We should be KILLING this Chatty team:  Depleted roster/short bench (only play 7), small front line (one of the few teams where we actually have a size advantage).

I've seen too many sequences where we have had 2 - 3 players in position for a defensive rebound & the only Chatty player in the mix gets the rebound.

We certainly have not done well on the defensive boards. Najdawi and Frierson are carrying us though. Up 93-89.

DAWGS win 110 - 101 in OT over an outmatched UTC team.  A win is a win, but this game should not have even been close.

Najdawi & Frierson both had MONSTER games!!!!!  Without them, this is an "L" & it wouldn't have been close.

Good win! Najdawi and Frierson amazing.  Done by 15 at one point to come and win by 9.  Great to get that first SOCON W.

Now go put it on UNCG.

I've been waiting for Nadjawi to pick up his game. He is a player who has weathered the storms and stayed the course. Great game by he and Frierson! Congrats Bulldogs!

Chatty just didn't have anyone on their front line that could match up with/challenge Najdawi.  How many times against SOCON teams has this happened?????  I don't think there has EVER been a SOCON team that we could dominate in the post.  This has got to be a first.

They still outrebounded us, 37 - 32, had 22 second chance points to our 7, and they scored 20 points off of turnovers to our 11. 

Without Frierson knocking down 9 of 18 3s, we lose this game.

Again, we should have won this game by 20, & never gone in to OT. Wouldn't be surprised if Chatty & VMI are the only SOCON games we win.
