CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Gee McGhee scored 22 points to lead five players in double figures in Chattanooga's 89-76 victory over The Citadel in a Southern Conference game Thursday.

Ronrico White had 19 points, Drazen Zlovaric scored 18, Z. Mason 14 and Martynas Bareika 12 for the Mocs (9-14, 4-6), who snapped a four-game losing streak. They had lost five of their previous six games.

P.J. Horgan had a career-high 25 points and 10 rebounds, and Mike Groselle scored 19 for the Bulldogs (6-16, 3-9), who had won two in a row. They lost to the Mocs 70-65 on Jan. 10.

Leading 44-37 at halftime, the Mocs opened with an 8-3 spurt to start the second half for a 52-40 advantage, and they were never threatened.

Chattanooga made 34 of 65 from the field to The Citadel's 26 of 49, and the Mocs outscored the Bulldogs 23-5 in points off turnovers.
