Mocs Shuffle Hoops Schedule by Adding Game Saturday With Northern Kentucky


( CHATTANOOGA—The Chattanooga Mocs and Northern Kentucky Norse were scheduled to meet last Saturday, Nov. 28. A positive test put the Norse on hold, but that situation has cleared enough to see a seismic shift in the Mocs schedule.

Turns out that postponement lasted a week. Chattanooga and NKU are now on course to meet this Saturday, Dec. 5. That moves Middle Tennessee back a day in Murfreesboro, while previously cancelled Cumberland on Dec. 12 is replaced by North Georgia.

How It Started > How It’s Going

Nov. 28-Northern Kentucky, 2 pm > Dec. 5-Northern Kentucky, 2 pm

Dec. 6-@Middle Tennessee, 3 pm > Dec. 7-@Middle Tenn., 7 pm

Dec. 9-@Bellarmine, 8 pm > NO CHANGES

Dec. 12-Cumberland, 2 pm > Dec. 12-North Georgia, 2 pm

The Mocs are coming off a 62-54 comeback win at Tennessee Tech Monday night. The squad is 2-0 for the first time since 2015-16 and for the 28th time in school history. The program moved to 3-0 in 14 of those campaigns with the aforementioned 2016 Southern Conference Champions providing the most recent occurrence.

The movement ensures four of the first five games see a shift of some sort. The opener with Bellarmine became Lander. NKU was the second game but is now the third. Monday’s contest in Cookeville is the only one to go off without a hitch.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
