Niners women beat Fordham 60-38

The Charlotte 49ers women's team used a balanced scoring attack with three players in double figures to overwhelm Atlantic 10 Fordham 60-38 Saturday at Halton Arena.

The win is Charlotte's six straight overall and in league play since opening the season with a home loss to Xavier.

Danielle Burgin scored 14 and Erin Floyd and Shannon McCallum each scored 12 for Charlotte (15-6, 6-1). The 49ers held Fordham to nine-percent shooting in the first half and 19.6 percent for the game.

"In the first half, our defense was terrific. I don't think they could run their offense for the first eight minutes or so," said Charlotte coach Karen Aston. "But we couldn't hit a shot. We missed a lot of open looks tonight."

Charlotte returns to action Tuesday playing at A-10 rival Saint Louis.

I wish the Charlotte women had a chance to play Xavier again this season. I have a feeling the outcome would be a lot different after this impressive win streak. Plus I think the NC A&T loss was just devastating. Keep up the good work ladies.
