CHATTANOOGA, TENN. -- Eboni Williams tallied 15 points to lead a parade of four double figure scorers, and Chattanooga used a strong first half to run away from Furman, 73-53, in women's Southern Conference basketball action Saturday afternoon at UTC Arena.

Chattanooga (8-10, 3-0 SoCon) took advantage of poor shooting by Furman (10-9, 2-2 SoCon) in the first period to race to a 22-11 first quarter lead and doubled up the Paladins, 21-9, in the second period to take a comfortable 43-20 lead into intermission.

The Paladins, who connected on just 4-of-20 shots (20.0%) over the game's first 10 minutes, struggled even more in the second period, making only 3-of-17 field goal attempts to finish the first half at 18.9 percent (7x37).

Bria Dial followed Williams with 14 points, and Lakelyn Bouldin added 11 points.  Abbey Cornelius rounded out the Mocs' double figure scoring attack with 10 points.

UTC finished the game shooting 28.6 percent (27x63) while Furman shot a season low 25.7 percent (18-of-70).

Le'Jzae Davidson, who did not play in the first half due to violation of team rules, led the Paladins with 14 points.

Furman returns home to face Wofford next Saturday in a 2:00 p.m. game.
