The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's basketball program's record-setting Southern Conference championship run officially came to an end Monday night at McKenzie Arena.

But the Lady Mocs went down kicking and screaming.

Appalachian State's Kelsey Sharkey scored on a putback with 11 seconds left to lift the Mountaineers to a 57-56 win. UTC had two possessions in the final 9.2 seconds but failed to score.

"We did have many chances, but we just couldn't get it together," said UTC's Kylie Lambert, who had 11 points and nine rebounds.
