Utah Valley State vs Chattanooga

Chattanooga 74, Utah Valley St. 59

  •  

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Omar Wattad scored 19 points to lead Chattanooga to a 74-57 victory over Utah Valley Friday night.

With their victory in the Dr Pepper Classic championship game, the Mocs (6-8) have won their holiday classic 14 times in its 21-year history.

Chattanooga led 30-26 at the half after two late 3-point baskets by Holton Hunsaker brought Utah Valley (8-8) within four points at intermission. But the Mocs reopened an eight-point cushion midway through the second half and were never threatened.

Hunsaker led all scorers with 21 points, hitting five 3-pointers. Forwards Geddes Robinson and Keith Thompson were the only other Wolverines in double figures with 12 points apiece. Robinson also grabbed 11 rebounds.

Wattad had more help from Ricky Taylor, whose 16-point night was his eighth straight game in double figures. Keegan Bell scored 15 and had 11 assists. Drazen Slovaric recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 boards.
