More from Charlotte's win over Winthrop

--Both Charlotte coach Bobby Lutz and Winthrop coach Randy Peele seem pleased with the new series and appear open to extending it beyond the original three-year deal. "In the past six years, you've had a lot of success in a 45-mile radius of here, with us, Charlotte and Davidson," Peele said. "When you aspire to play in the NCAA tournament every year, and you have a program 40 minutes away in the Atlantic 10, you should play that game. I just wish we had played better." In a season where wins have been hard to come by thus far, Lutz said any extra incentive is good. "When you're struggling, it's nice to be at home. We had a good crowd and hopefully this is the first of a lot of games to come," he said. "I think it's a good game for both schools and both communities."

--Charlotte showed vast improvement in rebounding over its performance against Xavier, although the 49ers were still beaten on the boards (31-30). Charlotte was hurt most on the offensive end, losing that battle 14-8.

--Ian Andersen now has 141 career 3-pointers and has surpassed 49er Byron Dinkins for 10th all-time in career 3-pointers made.

We just beat a team ranked 280+ in the RPI and we're calling it a new rivalry...tell me again why I should care?

Real 49ers give money to the program and are allowed to be upset about the 10 year decline of this program. And now you've pissed off Pino Pipes Jr...it's on

Youre right Chuck - moving to the A-10 and having 5 Seasons of declining performance makes a bad program! Fire Lutz!!

Yeah moving to the A-10 was Lutz's idea. Imbecile.
