UNC-Charlotte Primer & Open Thread

Tech travels to Charlotte to take on the 49ers of UNC-Charlotte. I'm assuming this is the first of a 2 for 1 deal with the 49ers. If you made the trip to Charlotte and were one of the first 1,000 lucky fans, you got a free Nike 49ers T-shirt! Woohoo!

The 49ers just beat Mercer on Tuesday. The Bears and 49ers were evenly matched until the Bears went cold from behind the arc only shooting 3-11 after starting the game 5-11. The Niners focused their efforts on containing James Florence and held him to 22 points.

The Niners are led by three guys: Chris Braswell, Shamari Spears, and Derrio Green. Those three have accounted for over 45% of the 49ers points. Spears is a former Boston College Eagle and he has played stellar for the Niners. Braswell and Green are underclassmen stars that have really made the offense tick.

The Niners are 10-2 on the season with blow out losses to Duke and Old Dominion. The game is an important ceiling gauge for Hewitt's young squad. Game will be televised on Fox Sports South. Fire away your in game thoughts!
