Observations from Sunday's win over Saint Louis

-Charlotte senior RaShad Coleman scored his only basket of the game on a breakaway layup with one minute, 45 seconds left in overtime but Coleman collapsed under the basket afterwards clutching his left knee and apparently in severe pain. Coleman was diagnosed with an injury to his patella tendon. The extent of his injury will not be known until he has a magnetic resonance imaging test.
-The 49ers did a near-masterful job on containing Saint Louis guard Kwamain Mitchell throughout the game. Mitchell appeared frustrated most of the game and made 2-of-14 shots. He didn’t score his field goal until the 6:26 mark in the second half. Mitchell finished with one assist, three turnovers and 12 points, with eight points coming from the free throw line.
-Jarvis Davis, a 6-foot-1 point guard at Hargrave Military Academy who committed to the 49ers last week, was in attendance for Sunday’s game. “I came to the Georgia Tech game and had a great time, the fans were awesome,” said Davis. “It’s close to home and I feel like if I work hard I can come here and make an immediate impact as a point guard.”
-Yes, that was Charlotte coach Bobby Lutz with no shoes on working sidelines during the game. It was part of the Samaritan’s Feet campaign, which is assisting with relief efforts in Haiti. Lutz went barefoot to help bring attention to the need for shoes.

I love you dearly and your the bomb when it comes to covering the 49ers, but how did you not note that we snapepd the 630-game streak of at least one three-pointer since 1989! We had to be Top 5 NCAA all-time.

I thought that nauseating smell coming from the court wasn't the usual 49ers funk. It was Bobbys foot odor!
