CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.---GoMocs.com continues its “Season in Pictures” series today recapping a memorable 2013-14. Today’s entry features junior guard Ronrico White.
The Knoxville, Tenn., native missed the first nine games and was limited in the next three prior to Christmas break due to offseason hip surgery. He came back from the holiday to spark a 10-game win streak as one of the nation’s top sixth men. Click the photo gallery link above for Ronrico’s season in pictures.
Three-Point Shot: Ronrico White
1) White was third on the squad in scoring at 10.8 points per game. He shot 38.4 percent (38-99) from 3pt range and 82.9 percent (92-111) from the free throw line. He had better than a two-to-one assist/turnover ratio with 57 assists and 28 giveaways.
2) Top Play: Ronrico keyed the overtime win at Western Carolina. The Mocs were in dire straits down four with the ball and a mere 30 seconds remaining. White brought the ball up the court and looked for the play call. The Catamounts took away option one so White fired from 22 feet and drained the three from the top of the key to cut it to one with 22 seconds remaining. Lance Stokes and Gee McGhee tied up Tom Tankelwicz for the turnover on the jump ball. Seven seconds later, Casey Jones hit the gamewinner. White tacked on a free throw with five seconds left after corralling James Sinclair’s miss after Jones’ basket put the good guys up by one.
3) Best game: White’s 5-5 performance from 3pt range was pivotal in the Dr Pepper Championship game win over Maine was stellar. But let’s go back to league play and the January 9 home matchup with Samford. Ronrico torched the Bulldogs for a career-high 28 points making 6-10 from the field (4-6 3pt) and 12-12 from the free throw line in the win. His effort at the charity stripe was the best by a Moc since Brandon Born went 13-13 against The Citadel on January 14, 1995.GoMocs.com is the official website of the Chattanooga Mocs.
