What to Know

The Charlotte 49ers and the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners are even-steven against one another since February of 2016 (3-3), but not for long. Charlotte and the Roadrunners will face off in a Conference USA battle at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday at Dale F. Halton Arena. Charlotte will be strutting in after a win while Texas-San Antonio will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Charlotte strolled past the Texas-El Paso Miners with points to spare on Thursday, taking the contest 66-53. Five players on Charlotte scored in the double digits: guard Jahmir Young (17), guard Jackson Threadgill (15), guard Austin Butler (12), forward Robert Braswell IV (10), and Musa Jallow (10).

Meanwhile, a victory for Texas-San Antonio just wasn’t in the stars on Thursday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They were dealt a punishing 83-51 loss at the hands of the Old Dominion Monarchs. Guard Erik Czumbel (16 points) was the top scorer for the Roadrunners.

The 49ers’ win brought them up to 8-5 while Texas-San Antonio’s loss pulled them down to 7-10. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Charlotte has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.30% from the floor on average, which is the 19th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Texas-San Antonio has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 38.60% percent of their shots, which is the 348th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
