Milestone games approaching at Halton

-- The next 49ers victory at Halton Arena -- whether it comes Wednesday against Xavier or later -- will be a milestone (No. 150) for the program. Charlotte is 149-48 at Halton since it opened in 1997, a winning percentage of 75.6.

Also, Charlotte will play its 200th game at Halton on Feb. 16 against Dayton.

-- Job No. 1 for the 49ers against the Musketeers on Wednesday will be to contain point guard Tu Holloway, who is having a league-MVP-caliber season. Holloway averages 21.1 points and 5.3 assists. Xavier is tied with Duquesne for the lead with a 7-0 record (15-5 overall).

-- The 49ers' Darius Law and Grant Nowell picked up conference track and field awards this week. Law is the performer of the week after winning the 200 meters at the Penn State National, running a career-best 21.23 (which also ranks second fastest in school history). Law was also second in the 400 meters and anchored Charlotte's 4 x 400 relay team that ran a 3:14.95, fifth fastest in 49ers history.

Nowell is the league's newcomer of the week after running a personal best 6.94 seconds in the 60-meter dash at the Penn State meet. It's the second fastest time in the A-10 this season.

-- 49ers freshman Gabby Tyler is the A-10's women's basketball co-rookie of the week. Tyler averaged 9.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in two Charlotte victories last week.

Win No. 150 may have to wait until next season.
