The Charlotte 49ers wrapped up their preseason men’s basketball trip through Canada on Monday with a 109-55 victory against Sheridan College.
In going 3-0, the 49ers averaged 106.7 points per game and averaged a 49-point margin of victory. Monday, Charlotte led 58-19 at halftime against a team which lost this weekend by 15 points to East Tennessee State and by 19 to Penn State.
Junior shooting guard Ian Andersen led the way for Charlotte with 18 points. Center Phil Jones had 15 points and 10 rebounds and freshman Javarris Barnett finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
In all 10 of the 11 Charlotte players who saw action scored, with six hitting double figures.
“I was real happy with the first half. Our defense was excellent and we shared the ball very well,” coach Bobby Lutz said. “I was also very pleased with the way we mixed up our defenses.”
In all, Lutz said he was pleased with the trip.
“We used a lot of lineup and everybody got significant playing time. We saw some things that we will work on and get better,” Lutz said. “This team is fun to watch and I am excited about the upcoming season.”

Glad to hear that we not only exploded offensively, shared the ball and played good team defense, but that no one was hurt!
