49ers homecoming will be mostly white

Once again, the Charlotte 49ers are promoting a "whiteout" for their home men's basketball game with Alantic 10 Conference rival Xavier, which this season also serves as homecoming. The game is 2 p.m. Saturday at Halton Arena.

Charlotte fans are encouraged to wear white to the game. The official "WHITEOUT" T-shirt is available for $9.95 at Barnes and Noble at UNC Charlotte. T-shirts will also be available and at the Barnes and Noble kiosk at Halton Arena during Wednesday's game with Duquesne.

In addition, fans with tickets to Saturday's basketball game can use the stub for free admission to Saturday's baseball home opener against High Point at 4 p.m. at Hayes Stadium.
