A seven-part photo series commemorating this season's Chattanooga Mocs basketball team continues today with a photo gallery of senior Omar Wattad. Wattad transferred to UTC in 2009 from Georgetown.

Omar is one of the most prolific three-point shooters in Chattanooga history. He is one of seven players to hit 160 shots from beyond the arc in his career. His total of 168 ranks fourth behind Stephen McDowell (243), Keddric Mays (207) and Tim Parker (174.) He is also fourth in three-pointers made per game (2.71) behind McDowell (3.68), Mays (3.18) and LaVert Threats (2.97).

Wattad scored 20 or more points with a high of 30 keying the 69-68 win at The Citadel on Jan. 13, 2011. He had 39 double-figure scoring nights overall, 18 in 2011-12.

He scored 24 points and grabbed five rebounds to open the season at Indiana. It was the first of four 20-point efforts. He added Dr Pepper Classic all-tourney honors with 37 points and nine rebounds shooting 52.4 percent from three-point range for the two days helping lead the Mocs to the title.

Elon was his favorite 2011-12 opponent. He scored his season high of 25 in the one-point loss at Elon before helping lead an impressive second-half blitz of the Phoenix in McKenzie Arena. He scored 14 of his 22 points in the first 10 minutes of the pivotal half spurring the Mocs in overcoming a six-point deficit for the win.

For his career, Wattad scored 815 points averaging 13.4 per game. He ranked as one of the top marksmen from long range in both seasons in the Roundhouse. Wattad was 35th nationally in three-pointers made (2.8/gm) and in 59th in percentage (36.1%) as a junior. He followed that performance ranking 39th in treys made (2.67) and 54th in percentage (35.7%).

The series continues next week with Keegan Bell and concludes with Ricky Taylor.
