It's award week for Goldwire, Niners

Charlotte 49ers senior shooting guard Leemire Goldwire is raking up kudos from across the country for his play last week.
Goldwire, who scored a career-high 34 points in a victory against Davidson and 24 in a win against Southern Illinois, shared player of the week honors in the Atlantic 10 Conference with Xavier’s Drew Lavender when the league announced its weekly awards Sunday night.
But that wasn’t all.
On Monday, ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale in his "Dickie V" weekly awards column for ESPN.com gave player of the week honors to Goldwire.
Vitale also tapped the 49ers as his team of the week, writing, "Very quietly, Bobby Lutz has done a super job. It’s a nice week when you can beat Davidson and Southern Illinois, two teams that are not cupcakes by any stretch of the imagination."
Finally, late Monday, Jeff Goodman of FoxSports.com named Goldwire his player of the week. He also named Charlotte his runner-up for team of the week, which he gave to fellow A-10 member Rhode Island.

Congrats to Lee and the Niners. Now when will Bobby stop flying under the radar with the President and Athletic Director and get an extension?

Not a Niner or Davidson fan, Goldwire's performance in that game, one of the best I've ever seen!

The question of the hour is...

With all this positive pub, why doesn't Charlotte get even a vote in either top-25 pole, but teams they beat handedly do?

Daboy, now give Bobby and extension!! He is one of the best coaches in the country and a way better man than you.

As to rankings, never mind!!! Guess it was appropriate that they lost to the "pride" ...
