On Tap: Charlotte at St. Bonaventure

A few notes heading into the 49ers' regular season finale Saturday at St. Bonaventure:

--Bobby Lutz, the 49ers' all-time winningest coach, needs one win to reach 200 during his 11-year career at Charlotte. He would be the first men's basketball coach in school history to reach the 200-win plateau.

--In A-10 games, senior forward Lamont Mack is fifth with an 18.1 scoring average and he also averages 6.6 rebounds. Mack, who scored a career-high 32 against Richmond on Tuesday, has scored in double figures in all 15 league games with seven games of 20 or more points. He has 26 double figure scoring games this year, including the last 17 straight.

--With 207 assists (7.14/gm), junior DiJuan Harris has tied Byron Dinkins for second all-time on the 49ers single-season charts. Harris ranks fourth in the NCAA in assists and sixth in assist-to-turnover ratio through games of March 1. For the second straight year, he leads the league in A-TO ratio (2.96). In just conference games, Harris is averaging 8.33 assists with a 3.38 A-TO ratio.
