UTSA Roadrunners at Charlotte 49ers

UTSA (7-6 CUSA) has won four of their last five games, but fell at ODU, 100-62 on Thursday. Charlotte is 1-12 in Conference USA and has now lost 11 straight games. These teams met last season just once, with Charlotte winning by one, 76-75.

Roadrunners run over by Monarchs

Texas-San Antonio had won four straight games before being crushed by Old Dominion (20-5, 11-2 CUSA)on Thursday from Norfolk. They were outrebounded by 10 and turned the ball over 17 times. They shot a horrific 10-of-26 (38.5%) from the free throw line. ODU made 52.4 percent of their shots and 15-of-26 from beyond the arc (57.7%). B.J. Stith scored 36 points (28 in the first half) on 11-of-17 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Monarchs. The Roadrunners were led by Jhivvan Jackson, who scored 22 points, while Deon Lyle added 18 points in 21 minutes off the bench.

Jackson leads the Roadrunners with 18.8 points per game, while Byron Frohnen adds 7.0 rebounds. On the season, UTSA averages 79.5 points per game on 43.3 percent shooting (35.5% 3pt). They allow 76.2 points per game on 42.1 percent shooting (36% 3pt).

Close but no cigar

Charlotte had a chance to break a 10-game losing streak. They were up by one but UTEP’s Paul Thomas hit a short jumper with two seconds left and that halted a six-game Miners losing streak. UTEP was also winless on the road until they met Charlotte. The 49ers were down by as many as 22 in the first half. They rallied to take a seven-point lead with 5:57 left. But when you are on a major losing streak, you find ways to lose. Charlotte’s leading scorer Jon Davis (15.9ppg, 5.3apg) missed the front end of a one-and-one with 21 seconds left up one. UTEP missed with six seconds left but the ball went out of bounds off Charlotte, when two 49ers players couldn’t corral the rebound. That gave Thomas a chance to win and he finished it.

Austin Ajukwa led the 49ers with 24 points, while Andrien White added 21 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Charlotte shot 50 percent from the field but allowed the Miners to shoot 53.6 percent and 11-of-20 (55%) from beyond the arc.

NCAAB Trends:

UTSA is:

  • 4-1 ATS last 5 overall.

Charlotte is:

n/a

I must be crazy. There are no trends to support Charlotte. But I’m going with my gut on this one. That the 49ers will cover and possibly break that 11-game losing streak. The Roadrunners are road-weary after playing their third game in seven days away from home.
