Mack's surgery a success

-- Charlotte 49ers men's basketball player Lamont Mack underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery last Friday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

"They were able to remove the torn piece and clean out some of the debris as well. Lamont is in good spirits. He will undergo a 12-week rehab program and we fully expect him to be ready to go for fall workouts," said Charlotte's head athletic trainer, Carlton Anderson.

The surgery was performed by Dr. James Fleischli.

Mack, a 6-foot-7 junior forward, averaged 12.8 points and 5.1 rebounds last season, his first with the 49ers. He scored in double figures in 10 of Charlotte's final 11 games.

-- Charlotte 49ers senior Andrew DiBitetto on Monday was named Atlantic 10 men's golf player of the week after finishing under par at two events this past week. Charlotte won the Palisades Collegiate Classic and finished fifth in the Boilermaker Invitational.

This is the ninth time this season a Charlotte player has won the award and the ninth week of competition for the 49ers. In other words, they have won the award for every week they have been eligible. DiBitetto finished one-under 215 at the Palisades tournament and two-under 214 at Purdue.
