Amid signing day hoopla, a basketball game

Brief preview of The Citadel’s game at Chattanooga on Thursday night. Dogs play at Samford on Saturday, so assuring a 1-1 road trip would be nice for a team that’s suddenly on the uptick with two straight wins.

  1. It has been fun following this team. Early on they were losing by 40 points or more; even to Div III teams. Gradually they improved and were losing by 10 or less and lately they have been winning. Some teams & coaches might have been discouraged but these guys hung in there.
