49ers travel partners scheduled

The Charlotte 49ers men's basketball team will see another change in their schedule this season.

The Atlantic 10 Conference has finally completed its rearrangement of each of the 14 member schools' "travel partners" for next season. Each school in the A-10 plays three schools in home-and-away games then plays each of the other 10 schools once for a total of 16 conference games.

For the first two years in the league, Charlotte's travel partners were George Washington, Richmond and Dayton. Beginning next season, two of those three will change. Richmond will remain the same, but Fordham and Temple will replace GW and Dayton.

The 49ers also have released their home and away conferences game opponents but not the dates. Next season, Charlotte will play the following A-10 teams at home: Richmond, Temple, Fordham, Duquesne, George Washington, St. Joseph's, Saint Louis and Xavier.

The 49ers will play the following A-10 teams on the road: Richmond, Temple, Fordham, Dayton, LaSalle, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and St. Bonaventure.

Charlotte's nonconference schedule is already complete and listed below for reference:

9 High Point
12 Appalachian State
16-19 at Paradise Jam Tournament
vs. Georgia Tech
vs. Winthrop/Ill. Chicago
vs. Notre Dame; Baylor; Monmouth; Wichita State
29 Wake Forest (Bobcats Arena)

At least we have Xavier, GW and St. Joe's at Home. Maybe our fans and alumni will take notice this year.

Clearly the best home schedule that Lutz has ever put together at Charlotte. Hopefully the 49ers can get more television time due to this great list of opponents.

Jim, keep us posted on TV. I need to know whether I should switch from cable to satellite. I get ESPNU but not CSTV. Any local stations carrying games?
