Chattanooga leads the league in scoring defense (55.9), 3-point field goal percentage .368) and 3-pointers made per game (6.2). On the boards, the Mocs pull down 32.9 rebounds per game and average four blocked shots per game.

Aryanna Gilbert leads the team in scoring with 13.6 points per game and is second for rebounding with 5.7 per game. She is shooting 51.2 percent and has 24 3-pointers on the year.
