CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) Gee McGhee scored 19 points to lead seven in the double figures as Chattanooga rolled over Covenant 119-56 on Friday night.

New head coach Will Wade had his first victory in hand early. Chattanooga scored the first 14 points before Colton McGriff's 3-pointer got the Scots on the board with 14:54 left in the first half. The Mocs led 56-29 at halftime.

The Mocs have four starters back from last season, including their top returning leading scorer, Z. Mason, who scored 16 points. Freshman point guard Greg Pryor added 14 in his debut.
