Voncina missing Coppin game

49ers guard Luka Voncina will miss tonight's game because personal issues. Here's the school's press release:

Charlotte 49ers sophomore guard Luka Voncina (Ljubljana, Slovenia) will be on the bench but will not dress for Monday’s game vs. Coppin State as he prepares to head home later this week to deal with personal issues. Out of respect to Voncina, specifics of the situation will not be discussed.

“Information at this time, even for Luka, is unclear,” said 49ers head coach Alan Major. “ He will learn more when he returns home. Until then, we respect his situation. It’s important that he knows that we are here for him and that his team stands by him and it’s important for us to allow him every opportunity to deal with this as necessary.”

Voncina is averaging 3.0 points and .8 rebounds for Charlotte and is averaging 15.6 minutes per game.
