It's the shock of the week babeeeeee!

ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale had some good words for the Charlotte 49ers in his weekly column released on Monday. Charlotte's win Saturday over then-No. 20 Louisville was named his "Shock of the Week."

Here was Vitale's entry:
SHOCK OF THE WEEK: Charlotte over Louisville
Charlotte handed injury-depleted Louisville its worst home loss under Rick Pitino with a surprisingly easy 87-65 win. Derrio Green had 20 points as Bobby Lutz’s squad hit 10 trifectas en route to the stunner.

Saturday night after the game, Vitale posted a comment about the 49ers on his Twitter account, @DickieV "Shock score of the night - Charlotte 87&Louisville 65! game was at Pitino's place."

Why does every article about the game mention "injury riddled" Louisville? Can't they mention that the Cards were OUTPLAYED by the 49ers?

Yeah, 49ers!

This game is a great reminder of how most Conference USA games were - bring back the great games!!! :)

Way to go, Bobby!

Couldn't they mention that a true frosh had 21 points, a juco transfer had 20 points, and a RS frosh had 17!?!?!?!

Couldn't they mention that one team from the State of North Carolina traveled to the Commonwealth of Kentucky and came away victorius?

Couldn't they have mentioned that the yield on 10-year Japanese government bonds slipped Tuesday as a stronger yen rekindled concerns about the country's export-driven economy, driving Tokyo shares down and prompting moves into haven assets?
