Lutz encouraged by effort in practice

Charlotte 49ers coach Bobby Lutz said this week's practices would say a lot about his team after its lopsided loss Saturday at Xavier. Tuesday, after two days of hard practice, Lutz said he was generally pleased with the team's effort.

"Yesterday was a great practice," Lutz said. "Today wasn't quite as good but I thought our second group created some of that. They played well today and that's good because did a better job today of simulating Richmond. Overall, it's been good. I know we're ready to play and we're ready to get that game Saturday out of our system."

Repeatedly Tuesday, Lutz asked his team to pass the ball on offense. At one point he said, "I promise if you pass the ball at least four times, I guarantee you will get a wide-open shot." Lutz no sooner finished when the offense started back, and on the fourth pass, Sean Phaler was wide open on the corner and drained a 3-pointer.

Charlotte's Antwon Coleman, who has a right thumb injury, was able to participate in much of practice. Jerell Jamison (back) went the distance.

What do you mean by Jameson's back went the distance?

Let's see this go to work, and lets see some more DEFENSE. I hope these open looks aren't all for 3 point shots.
