    Mocs on the Mic 29 - Alex Black

    Alex Black came to Chattanooga from Memphis where she played for former Mocs’ assistant Becky Myatt Starks at Harding Academy.  In her four years with UTC, Alex helped the Mocs to an historic win over fourth-ranked Tennessee, two Southern Conference regular season titles, two SoCon Tournament crowns and back-to-back NCAA appearances. She was named All-Conference by the league coaches in her senior year and was a two-time selection to the SoCon All-Tournament team.  After graduation, Alex’s passion for basketball never wavered as she assisted Starks at Harding and was offered a position as an assistant coach with a men’s professional team in her hometown. She also studied nursing and is working in that field today. Listen as she relives her time with the Mocs and her present role in the medical field during a pandemic.

    Mocs on the Mic 28 - Karen Mills & Skip Clark

    While their paths to UTC were very different, former Mocs’ cagers Karen Mills and Skip Clark met on the basketball court and have continued that friendship on the stage as stand up comedians.  Mills, an all-conference performer from Cleveland, Tenn., holds the school record for assists and is second for steals. The quick-handed point guard ranks among the best in scoring with more than 1,000 points.  Clark, on the other hand, knew he wanted to get out of New York. He traveled to Chattanooga from the Bronx, passing on scholarship opportunities closer to home. He was selected to the Southern Conference All-Tournament team and holds UTC’s record in the NCAA Tournament for steals.  Their paths after college were different, the two have met to perform together and today to relive their time on the court and what life is like after basketball.

    Mocs on the Mic 26 - Justin Tuoyo & Greg Pryor

    Mocs on the Mic 26 - Justin Tuoyo & Greg Pryor

    We’re excited to get in the way-back machine for this week’s Mocs on the Mic Podcast. OK…so maybe not way back but our heroes are former standouts on the Roundhouse hardcourt. Our host Chris Goforth spends time visiting with Greg Pryor and Justin Tuoyo.

    Pryor was a 4-year starter during one of the best runs in school history. He directed an 88-win run from the point guard position including a school-record 29 in 2016 winning Most Outstanding Player at the Southern Conference Tournament, the 11th win in the event which ranks second most all-time in league history. His 2020 professional season in England was cut short by the Covid crisis.

    Tuoyo memories and personality are as large as he played on the court. The 3-time SoCon Defensive Player of the Year holds every school record for blocked shots. His three campaigns in the Arena resulted in 70 wins, a SoCon title and ranking as one of the biggest fan favorites in school history. The pandemic also ended his professional season in Switzerland.
