Jamison injured in loss

Wrapping it up after Charlotte's 62-60 loss Thursday night against George Washington:

Charlotte senior forward Jerell Jamison went down hard while battling for a rebound and injured his left ankle. He did not return to the game. Jamison planned to get an X-ray after the game to see whether he had a fracture, but Charlotte officials hoped it was only a sprain. The results from the X-ray or Jamison's status were unavailable late Thursday.

With Leemire Goldwire crossing the 1000-point career mark in the first half, he and De'Angelo Alexander have both scored their 1000th point this season. The last 49ers teammates to reach 1000 in the same season were Curtis Withers and Eddie Basden in 2005. In addition to sharing team-high scoring honors with Alexander with 16 points, Goldwire also had a career-high nine rebounds.

It looks like Charlotte will open the 2007-08 season with a home game Nov. 9 against High Point from the Big South Conference. The Panthers are coached by Bart Lundy, a former coach at NCAA Division II Queens in Charlotte. High Point ended its season Thursday night with a loss to VMI in the Big South tournament semifinals. - Jim Utter

Jamison had 5 boards in the 7 minutes he played. We really could have used him the rest of the game. Hope he is ok.
