49ers to play George Mason in Charleston

The 49ers' men's basketball team will play George Mason in the first round of the Charleston Classic Nov. 18-21. The 49ers' potential opponent in their next game would be N.C. State, which plays East Carolina in the opening round.

The tournament's bracket is expected to be released on Monday. The final two teams in the eight-team field -- Coastal Carolina and USC Upstate -- will also be officially announced then.

The other teams in the field are Georgetown and Wofford.

George Mason was 17-15 last season and lost in the first round of the Postseason Tournament to Fairfield. The Patriots have one of the top players in the Colonial Athletic Association in guard Cam Long.

Niner fans are all excited about basketball when it's football season.

They haven't been relevant in basketball since they lost to UNC in the NCAAs.

The Tar heels haven't been relevant in football since their players had to take their own tests.
