49ers' Canada trip begins with win

The Charlotte 49ers got off to a strong start on their three-game swing through Canada with a convincing 88-59 victory Saturday against the University of Toronto.
Senior forward Charlie Coley led the way for the 49ers, finishing with 15 points with 7-of-13 shooting. He also had six rebounds and three dunks.
Freshman shooting guard Shamarr Bowden had 13 points and sophomore Charles Dewhurst finished with a double-double, 12 points and 10 rebounds.
In all, 10 of the 11 Charlotte players who saw time scored. Junior DiJuan Harris started at the point and had nine points, seven assists, seven steals and just one turnover.
“I’m extremely proud of our effort, energy and unselfishness. Our execution overall was pretty good,” 49ers coach Bobby Lutz said. “We have some room to improve but with the fast pace of the game and to have only nine turnovers – that’s pretty good.”
The 49ers will return to action Sunday with a game at 7 p.m. at York University in Ontario, Canada.

I love that Lamont Mack only took 7 shots. They must have passed the ball very well, 22 assists on 35 buckets and onluy 9 TOs. Charles Dewhurst is ging to have a big season.

The assist to shot ratio is amazing, we haven't seen a Niners team this unselfish in a long time. This is going to be a really special season. The city will have figured that out by the end of November. The nation will figure that out by the time that A10 season starts.
