Niners excel in the classroom

Nine members of the 2006-07 Charlotte 49ers men’s basketball team posted a GPA of 3.0 or higher during one or more semesters in 2006-07. Ian Andersen and E.J. Drayton both posted perfect 4.0 GPA’s during the spring, 2007 semester. In addition, with two members of the senior class graduating, Charlotte has now graduated 10 of its last 14 seniors.

Ian Andersen (Fall, ‘06; Spr. ‘07), Kyle Church (Fall, ‘06; Spr., ‘07), E.J. Drayton (Spr., ‘07), Travis Gordon (Fall, ‘06; Spr. ‘07) all earned mention on the Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll for posting GPA’s of 3.5 or higher during a semester.

In addition, Charles Dewhurst, Michael Gerrity, Jerell Jamison and Sean Phaler all posted GPA’s over a 3.0 in the spring semester and Dewhurst and David Booker posted GPA’s of 3.0 or higher in the fall semester.

Gordon and Drayton both graduated and Jamison is enrolled and expected to graduate in December. Over the past three years, 10 of the 49ers 14 seniors have graduated, including former C-USA Player of the Year Eddie Basden and three-time first team all-conference choice Curtis Withers.

Curtis Nash, who completed his career in 2003, also graduated this year, giving Charlotte 13 graduates among its 19 seniors over the last five years.
