Need to watch some local sports? The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has one option Thursday night. The Chattanooga Mocs Facebook page (facebook.com/ChattanoogaMocs) will feature a watch party at 8 with a showing of UTC's Feb. 28, 1993, men's basketball win over Georgia Southern. That was the regular-season finale for the Mocs, who won the Southern Conference by four games. UTC leaders included Tim Brooks, Gary Robb, Chad Copeland, Brandon Born and Tee Jay Jackson. "At this time in our history, finding enjoyment in a safe way is pure gold," Jim Horten, UTC's director of strategic communications, said in a release. "Fans and media can watch and comment live. MocsVision has made this possible and plans further rebroadcasts of games we have the rights to if this is something our fans and alums enjoy." For information, visit gomocs.com.

* Already the USA South men's basketball player of the year for the second season in a row, Covenant College junior forward Will Crumly repeated Tuesday as an NABC All-South District and a D3hoops.com All-South Region selection. He was an NABC first-team choice again and a D3hoops second-teamer after making the all-region first team last year. No other USA South player was in either listing. Crumly averaged 17.2 points and 8.6 rebounds a game this past season, led the league in field goals made (182) and was second in total rebounds (233). He has 1,320 points as a Scot.

* Hixson High School senior Kirby Brown recently signed paperwork to continue her basketball career at Roane State Community College. Brown led the Lady Wildcats this past season with 15 points, 11 rebounds and 2.8 blocked shots a game. A four-year starter, she finished with 1,065 points.

 

Baseball

* Junior Trevor Grapenthin became the third Covenant player in this abbreviated season to be included on the D3baseball.com national team of the week. He was 3-for-4 with three doubles, a walk, two runs batted in and three runs scored in a 26-2 rout of Iowa Wesleyan. His second three-hit game of 2020 gave him a final batting average of .393 with 10 RBIs and 12 runs.

 

Tennis

* Chattanooga Tennis Association president John Davis announced Tuesday night that the CTA has suspended all leagues and organized play as part of the worldwide effort to slow the coronavirus spread.
