The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's basketball Mocs know that if they're going to win their first-round NCAA tournament game against Syracuse, they need to be able to hit shots from 3-point range.

But that's not all they have to do.

After a brief practice Thursday morning, the Mocs departed for Lexington, Ky., where they will face the Orange (22-9) on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum. UTC (29-3) will hold a 90-minute practice today at Memorial, with a key part of the preparation dealing with Syracuse's zone defense.
