Spears shares A-10 player of week honors

Charlotte 49ers junior forward Shamari Spears was named the Atlantic 10 Conference's co-player of the week after leading the 49ers to wins over George Washington and Fordham the past week.

Spears scored a career-high 31 points on 12-of-20 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Colonials. He earned his second double-double of the season with 15 points and 13 rebounds in Charlotte's come-from-behind win Saturday at Fordham. The Fordham game was Spears' second 13-rebound game of the season.

The 49ers (18-5, 8-1) return to action on Wednesday, playing at Dayton.
