49ers' women beef up nonconference schedule

The Charlotte 49ers' women's basketball team will face one of its most challenging nonconference schedules this season, including home games against ACC opponents Wake Forest and Clemson and a nationally-televised home game against Notre Dame.

Charlotte will play a 14-game nonconference schedule and will open the 2008-09 season playing in a tournament Nov. 15-16 at N.C. State. The 49ers' first home game of the season is Nov. 21 against Alabama-Birmingham.

The 49ers will have at least two games televised, including the Dec. 28 home game against Notre Dame, which is expected to be broadcast on ESPNU. Charlotte will also have one of its Atlantic 10 Conference games televised.

Charlotte will play Dec. 21 at South Carolina, where former WBNA Charlotte Sting coach Dawn Staley makes her debut this season with the Gamecocks.

The A-10 schedule has not been released.

WOW!! I wish Lutz had the stones to play a schedule like that!

I guess we will have to wait to the next time his contract is about to expire :(
