Observations from Tuesday's 49ers-Duke game

<>In the first half, Boston College transfer Shamari Spears appeared the only 49er not intimidated or in awe of the surroundings. He had experienced the atmosphere before while playing for the Eagles. His last game in Cameron Indoor Stadium with Boston College consisted of 10 points and six rebounds in a 90-80 Duke win in February 2008.

<>Some early-game props for the 49ers: When Charlotte was staying respectably close, one Duke student shouted, “This is a real team dude, not Coastal Carolina.” The Blue Devils had beaten the Chanticleers 74-49 on Monday night.

<>Charlotte may have been over-matched in talent, but the 49ers contributed to their own problems, particularly in the first half, with bad passes, rushed shots and silly mistakes like botching a routine inbounds pass.

<>Former 49ers golf coach Jamie Green, who left last season to become the coach at Duke, watched the game with the 49ers fans.

<>Derrio Green actually ended up with more minutes played (25) than DiJuan Harris (23). Green looks more comfortable spelling Harris at the point but is struggling with his shot right now.

It was shameful, but I still have a lot of hope this season. We need to limit Phil's minutes against good teams, he is a turnover machine between bad hands and his lack of basketball IQ. I would like to see DG show some offense or start bowden instead. I still wonder if Anjuan will take Colemans spot at the 3 or will Dew take it over.
