49ers struggling early in 2nd half

The 49ers have lost three straight Atlantic 10 games heading into Wednesday's game against Temple. A major reason why is that Charlotte has been coming out flat after halftime, being outscored 31-16 before the first media timeout in those three games. Here's a look at some interesting numbers in those losses to UMass, Saint Louis and George Washington:

Halftime score: UMass 44-33.
First four minutes of second half: UMass 13-6.
Upshot: Minutemen eventually went ahead by 20 points before a late Charlotte rally fell short. Final: UMass 85-75.

Saint Louis
Halftime score: Charlotte 34-26
First four minutes of second half: Saint Louis 8-6.
Upshot: Billikens went on a second-half tear that eventually led to a 13-point lead. Charlotte rallied, but again, fell short. Final: Saint Louis 68-67.

George Washington
Halftime score: Charlotte 25-22
First four minutes of second half: GW 10-4.
Upshot: Colonials never allowed 49ers to lead again. Final: GW 60-52.

-- Whether 49ers point guard Pierria Henry -- who dislocated his right index finger Saturday at George Washington -- plays against Temple will be a game-time decision, according to coach Alan Major.
