49ers women at home on the road

Charlotte's women's basketball team seems to be enjoying life on the road in the Atlantic 10.

The 49ers (17-5, 5-2) have won eight straight road games, including their first four in the league. They won at  Saint Louis 75-38 last Sunday and complete a three-game road trip on Saturday at UMass. They opened the trip with a 73-62 victory at Richmond on Jan. 26.

The 49ers return to Halton Arena on Feb. 9 (George Washington) and Feb. 12 (Dayton). Charlotte's two league losses have been at home, 60-57 against Temple and 82-61 against No. 7 Xavier on Jan. 22.

The 49ers continue to hammer most of their opponents on the boards. Charlotte has had games of 50-plus rebounds seven times and outrebounded the Billikens 47-26.

And that was an area that coach Karen Aston was worried about in the preseason.
