Davidson back on 49ers' schedule

The 49ers' men's basketball schedule won't be released for a few weeks yet, but -- unofficially -- here are some highlights:

-- The 49ers will resume their rivalry with Davidson with a Dec. 11 game at the Wildcats' Belk Arena. Charlotte and Davidson haven't played since 2007.

-- Charlotte will play Tennessee at Time Warner Cable Arena on Dec. 17.

-- The 49ers play at Georgia Tech on Jan. 2, the same day the Carolina Panthers play the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome at 1 p.m. Gametime for the 49ers-Yellow Jackets hasn't been announced, but 49ers officials are hoping it's at night or late afternoon.

-- The 49ers will open the season in a tournament in Charleston, along with N.C. State, Georgetown, George Mason, Wofford and East Carolina. The final two teams of the eight-team tournament have yet to be announced.

-- There's talk that the home opener will be Nov. 27 against S.C. State, part of a doubleheader with the 49ers' women's team. Their opponent? Duke.

-- The rest of the non-conference schedule will include home games against Winthrop and Wright State and away games against Mercer and East Carolina. Dates on all of them aren't firm yet.

-- The Atlantic 10 schedule hasn't been announced yet, but Charlotte has home-and-home league games against George Washington, Richmond and Xavier, while it will play home games against Dayton, Fordham, La Salle, Massachusetts and Saint Joseph's. On the road: Duquesne, Rhode Island, St. Bonaventure, Saint Louis and Temple.

playing East Carolina at home and away? that's odd.

Glad Davidson's back on the schedule. Those Ws always come in handy and Davidson loves giving us Ws.

Andrew, that's fixed. Thanks.

looks like a pretty good schedule. I like the Charleston tourney location and the schools invited so far.

Too bad Tenn. won't play us in Halton though.

With a little investigation, as in going to other schools website...not rocket science David, you will see the dates for a lot of these games:

November 27th: Radford(we still play SC State though)
December 7th: Winthrop
December 22nd: Wright State
December 30th: at Mercer

I can't believe Davidson agreed to play us. But it's doubtful that the Hornet's Nest Trophy is going anywhere.

Screw Davidson and McKillop's ego. They are blip on the Curry family gene pool. They are better than us at their place, but I think Chris and Shamari will make sure we don't back down.
