Vitale nice to Niners, A-10

Veteran college basketball analyst Dick Vitale had several nice things to say about the Charlotte 49ers and the Atlantic 10 Conference this week in his column posted on USAToday.com on Tuesday.

Among them:
Brian Gregory has done an outstanding job at Dayton this season. Remember, the Flyers were picked to finish sixth in the A-10 preseason poll. Brian Roberts has been one of the All-Solid Gold performers.

• Oh, yes, my friends, the most improved conference is the Atlantic 10, with quality teams Xavier, Rhode Island, Dayton, UMass, Charlotte, Saint Joseph's and a host of others. There are no cupcakes, baby! Best of luck to Commissioner Linda Bruno, who retires at the end of the year.

And this tidbit from his "All need-more-pub team" list:

Leemire Goldwire (Charlotte), 5-11 senior guard: Has shown explosiveness at times. Ask Bob McKillop, since Goldwire put up 34 against Davidson.

Good think he is not judged on his academics.

9:34, whats that supposed to mean? Lee is actually a pretty intelligent guy, who is also married and has a young son.
