CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Drazen Zlovaric and Martynas Bareika each scored 20 points to lead Chattanooga to a 108-78 rout over Reinhardt on Friday.

Farad Cobb had 14 points and Alex Bran added 12 for the Mocs (3-8), who ended a four-game losing streak.

Chattanooga used a strong first half to pull away early, going on an 8-0 run that was capped by Bareika’s jumper to give the Mocs a 35-15 lead with 5:53 left in the first half. Chattanooga went into halftime with a 60-33 lead.

The Mocs barely outscored the Eagles 48-45 in the second half, but had enough cushion to cruise to the victory.

Xavier Mayfield and Larricus Thomas had 13 points apiece for Reinhardt, which counted the game as an exhibition. Gabe Mathis scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting.

The Mocs shot 56.8 percent (42-of-74) from the floor for the game while holding Reinhardt to 38.4 percent (28-of-73). Nearly half of the Eagles’ made shots were 3-pointers. They were 12-of-33 from beyond the arc.

The game was Reinhardt’s second of two this season against an NCAA team. The Eagles lost to 93-63 to Jacksonville State in November.

Reinhardt will now go into a two-week break before hosting Union College in a Jan. 3 Appalachian Athletic Conference game.
