Five Mocs score in double figures in exhibition win

UTC 's Casey Jones had 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the 91-63 exhibition victory over Covenant College.

The game didn't count.

But it mattered.

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's basketball team had a successful introduction to its 2015-16 season Friday, claiming a 91-63 exhibition victory over NCAA Division III neighbor Covenant College in front of 2,332 fans at McKenzie Arena.

The game won't be reflected in the records. UTC's season officially begins next Friday with a trip to Georgia, but the Mocs put forth a good showing against the overmatched Scots.
