Temple beat Charlotte 79-57 in Charlotte Wednesday. Terrible performance by the 49ers. Set the cause back. Gave fans no reason to come back, not that many had come to Halton Arena. Charlotte's finest moments -- it had two -- were back-to-back game-ending threes by walk-ons Colby Lewis and Lamar Bradbury.
Game was not nearly as close as the score implies. Charlotte didn't score its first basket until more than 10 minutes had passed in the first half. 49ers had 1 on the scoreboard for so long it looked like a tattoo.
