The Charlotte 49ers and UNC Asheville Bulldogs play Sunday afternoon at the Kimmel Arena.
The Charlotte 49ers look to bounce back from back-to-back losses to the Miami Hurricanes. On the season, Charlotte is averaging 75.2 points on 47.2 percent shooting and is allowing 74.8 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Mike Thorne Jr. leads the 49ers with 15.4 points and 8.8 rebounds while Braxton Ogbueze is averaging 13 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Ogbueze is questionable with a knee injury. Pierria Henry is averaging 4.8 assists per game and Torin Dorn is shooting 51.5 percent from the field. The Charlotte 49ers are a great offensive team that’s even shooting 38.6 from beyond the arc and 61.3 percent from the free throw line. However, Charlotte has been slacking on the defensive side and has allowed 70-plus points in three of its last four games.

The UNC Asheville Bulldogs have split their last four games and could improve their defensive efforts as well. On the season, UNC Asheville is averaging 78.5 points on 40.5 percent shooting and is allowing 86.5 points on 50.7 percent shooting. Andrew Rowsey leads the Bulldogs with 26.6 points on 45.9 percent shooting and Kem Ubaru is averaging 12.8 points and 6.2 rebounds. David Robertson is shooting 47.1 percent from the field and Kevin Vannatta is shooting 33.3 percent from deep. The UNC Asheville Bulldogs have no problem scoring or rebounding, as Rowsey is one of a handful of players in college who can win games almost by himself. However, the fact UNC Asheville is allowing teams to shoot 40 percent from downtown isn’t going to translate to many wins. UNC Asheville has allowed 187 points in its last two games.
The 49ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. loss. The Bulldogs are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
