-- After making 12-of-15 free throws in a first-round victory against Richmond (including eight of 11 in the final five seconds), Charlotte’s Pierria Henry was just one of three against Saint Louis. Charlotte made eight of nine in the first half, then slumped to four of 13 in the second half.-- The 49ers outrebounded Saint Louis 39-34, but had just 10 offensive rebounds and were outscored 28-24 in the paint by the Billikens.
-- Richmond coach Chris Mooney, who had two technical fouls and was ejected from Thursday’s loss against Charlotte, won’t face disciplinary action from the Atlantic 10, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.
-- It was a tough tournament for 49ers guards not named Henry. Sophomore E. Victor Nickerson was a combined one-of-10 from the field, sophomore Terrence Williams four-of-17 and freshman Denzel Ingram one-of-10.
-- The Atlantic 10 will hold its Inaugural Legends Celebration before Saturday’s semifinals. Cedric Maxwell and Paula Bennett are Charlotte’s legends.
